I was on my way to work today (SFO) and noticed 8 UA 747-400's parked at Super Bay. On the G concourse, Uniteds international side, I saw 2 more. I dIdn't see if there were any at the MOC. So I was wondering, does anyone know how many are left? I was guesing 30! Thats something to see roughly 30-35% of 1 type for a airline at a city at one time.

UA currently has 27 744s in the "operating fleet" ; that means not stored in the desert. So seeing 10 at the same time in SFO is quite amazing. Think a few more will be in service with the new summer schedule.
A lot of 744s are used on Transpac routes so since UA has many Transpac flights from SFO, You will see a lot of them there. ORD has a few, same for LAX.
Need a Boeing 777 Firing Order....Further to fly....LX and LH 777s
