I noticed on the NWA timetable about 3 different 747s.....747..742..744
On nwa.com there's an international config (747-200Z) 286Y/55C and a beach config (747-200G) 400Y/15C...what is the difference between the two. (i.e. which are used on the LAX/SEA-NRT routes that are listed as 747 in the timetable.

We also have a charter configured 747, ship 6613 which is 34/412 seating. But there is a clarrification that should be noted. According to my FA manual,
the proper numbers are 67/286 for the standard and non-standard International 747-200's and 30/400 for standard and non-standard Beach market 200's. The international aircraft are used from US-Asia and also Interport flights(within Asia). The Beach Market is Hawaii to Japan. Guam and Saipan are not classified as Beach Market, they also are Interport.
