Very few are still used in commercial service.
Iran Air & Syrianair still operate their 74L's to LHR I believe (and probably other EU airports perhaps CDG or FRA), so LHR might be your best bet.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

CGN was also served by Iran Air's
SP lately. I am not sure if they still operate this route with that model after the Beijing incident.
LHR seems to be the safest bet in Europe.
I remember the days when Air China used to fly them into FRA and I always thought they were the ugliest non-AA MD80.
Where have all the tri-jets gone...

There are 747SP's on an almost daily base into
My record in LHR is 3 747SP's in one day: RB, IR and one of the United Arab Emirates

Iran Air still have its
SP's in service. Actually I think it is the major SP operator. They usually fly to London, Stockholm, Kualalampur, Beijing and Tokyo. Sometimes you can see them in Copenhagen and in Germany. Any time you want to fly to Tehran, you are more than welcome.

The only time an aircraft has too much fuel is when it is on fire.
