Some of KLM's 744s (not sure how many) are the combi format. Another airline that has not been mentioned is Air Namibia. They have had a 744-Combi on and off for a while now...more on than off. Also, what about Martinair Holland?

AC is currently operating them on the routes YYZ-AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA (7/7), YUL-AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA (7/7) and YYZ-LHR (4/7). From July on or so they will put two of them on YYZ-AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA instead of YUL-AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA. Let's see what happens in the fall, as AC announced that they will leave the fleet. But AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA has a big Cargo volume so it will be interesting to see what they will come up with.

On December 2003 I went to see my new Passat 4 motion coming out of a LH 747M at MEX. At that time LH and KLM were up loading some Beattles from Mexico to Europe. I'm sure they were not cargo planes because they were at the jetways over the International Terminal not at the cargo complex.
What about now, do they still fly the Combies to MEX?

The 747-300 Combis are actually seen on AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA/BKK/NRT routes. The DEL-NRT flight is increasingly becoming a 747-200 instead due to heavy passenger loads.
I just checked the AI webpage, and one of the three flights AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA-DEL is assigned as JET, the other as 74D. Airwise.com says 742. Does that mean that the AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA-DEL sector experiences more often an equipment change due to high pax load from 74D to 742?

Call me crazy but didn't AF operate some 744 combis? Can't exactly remember but I think I remember a Herpa Wings model that was an AF 744 Combi. Anyways, if I am wrong, I'm sorry for misinforming you. Good luck on your project!
