Hi all,

With the retirement of the Air Canada Boeing 747-400's what will happen to them - I heard that they have gone into storage but then what?

Where they leased or where they wholly owned?

The 747's are a popular aircraft type with various airlines around the World like KLM,BA,Air France and Qantas - surely there will be market for these unlucky birds?

The beautiful aircraft hopefully find new homes but when do you think they will get new homes?

Have some of them got a definite new life with another airline or leasing company?

I would love any info on what is planed for these girls!

Search the forum, there has been some information posted. IIRC something was said about the aircraft heading to TLV for freighter conversion and then going to a Chinese operator.

Aerolineas Argentinas took 2 from AC approximately 2 months ago and now use them regularly on thier EZE-MAD and EZE-ROME routes. You can see them in Aerolineas livery by searching for them in the photo search section.

I suspect you will find that those Aerolineas Argentinas birds were previously operated by Canadi>n Airlines Limited. Therefore, they were not the (3) combi aircraft which Air Canada just retired that were operated from new. I don't think the former CAL 744s were in the AC fold for very long.
