Ok time for a personal rant here....
I had the honor to fly on my first ever 747 flight today, on the wings of a United 744 from SFO to DEN. I'll write a detailed trip report about my journey tomorrow, but for now, I just need to salute the aircraft which I have been waiting such a long time to fly on. Needless to say, it did not dissapoint by any stretch of the imagination. It was easily the best flight I have ever been on. Period. What a plane. The 380 won't even come close to it in my opinion. The 744 is the TRUE queen of the skies!

I just got back from an Asia trip involving 4 744s (3 of them United). They are great planes. For the short flights such as yours from SFO-DEN, they are a lot of fun. They are so light on fuel they jump right off the runway and get up there very fast.
