With such a large fleet of 744s, I was wondering where they fly to. I've compiled a basic list, but was hoping some of you out there could help me with some of the African destinations that are served just once or twice a week. Here's what I have so far:

BA also use their 747-400's on their LHR-JED-KWI-LHR runs 4x per week in addition to their daily 777 dedicated service to kuwait, and 3x weekly LHR-RUH-KWI-LHR route. Although now that the Saudi routes will be dropped, I think the KWI route will go back to a single daily 777 service.

MIA gets 2 daily 744's and in the Winter 3 daily 744's (Saturdays). Talk about alot of demand for MIA-LHR, it is also flown daily by AA using 772 and double daily 772 on certain days by AA in the Winter and a mix of 744 & A346 on daily VS flight.

Yes, MIA does have a lot of demand in the Winter. The English love warm weather! Add to that many European companies having meetings and conferences in the warmer climates when it's grey and cold in Europe as well as the transferring pax from the Caribbean and Latin America. Even during the summer MIA still manages decent loads even though that's the low season for British traffic.
