Hey folks,
Here is one for the statistic wizards,
What airlines have had all variants of the 747? Pax and/or Cargo variants too.

First one to come to mind is Qantas. They have operated -100, -200, -300, -400 and the SP. I'll post more if I can confirm.

Don't think it's Qantas. They never had a freighter. Without doing any research, I'd say it's Korean and Singapore. NW might qualify since they have actually owned a 300 but it has been in storage.

Qantas never operated the 747-100 or a pure frieghter.

They waited until 1971 for the 747B to come out (the 747-238B).

They have operated every other make -

747-238B, a combi version of the 238, 747SP-38, 747-338, 747-438, and 747-438ER.

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

According to Airfleets.net, Qantas did operate -100 series. See following link:

I also should have been specific that Qantas operated all PAX variants.

The only airline that could possibly have operated every single 747 variant is JAL.

JAL and ANA are the only two operators of both the 747SR and the 747-400D. ANA, though, has never had SUD versions of the 747, and I don't think they've operated all the cargo types that JAL has. So that leaves JAL as the only possibility.

I know JAL has operated 747-100's, -200's, -300's, -400's, SR's, 400D's, and all freight versions. I don't know if they've ever operated any combi's or SP's. If they haven't, though, then the answer to this question is "nobody", because nobody else besides ANA has operated SR's and 400D's.

I also should have been specific that Qantas operated all PAX variants.

See above.

In fact you can get pretty nuts with this. Technically, UPS and I think Evergreen are the only carriers that have ever flown a 747SR cargo config (repurposed from JAL and ANA pax fleets). But even if you're going to limit it to airplanes actually in the Boeing catalog, then it's either JAL or it's nobody.
