Could be a substitution for a broken 777 or they could have flown it there after a military charter from the middle east for maintenance or to swap it out with the IAD 747 to get it back to the states for service. I think all the scheduled ORD's are 777s.

Actually I heard that UA were reintroducing 747s at LHR. Dunno if it makes much sense, summer yeah sure but not right now. Anyway those 747s you saw may not be subs, maybe sent 'in anger' if you know what I mean.
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz
