Did any airline operate all four variants of the 747? Not that it really makes a difference, but I'm just curious.

KLM for example operated all but the -100...can't think of anyone who operated all four variants, but I could be wrong.

Probably United would come closest, even operating the SP version too.

NW has OWNED all of the mentioned 747 subtypes.....didnt NW acquire two 743s from Swissair for parts for its 747-200s and 747-200 Freighters? NW never operated the 743 in revenue service.

N328KF,

Yes they do. They operate a couple (or a few) 747-146SR/SUDs. Delivered in the mid 1980s.. Pretty neat.

Unless we include -400ER as separate from -400.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Qantas. QF had every 747 sub-type except the -100 series. I like to mention the USAF. They have the -200 & -400, while NASA has the -100 & the -SP. Regards.

It's the sole 744 known in the USAF as the ABL-1...airborne laser 1. Basically it's a standard -400 airframe without the extended hump and was highly modified in ICT by Boeing. I could be wrong about that name tho. Regards.
