Just occurred to me, besides NW which other US carriers are using B747. If not, then why?

UA does
DL and AA used to
May they rest in peace, TWA, Pan Am, & Braniff did

It's been talked to death the reasons why and why not....try to search but I guarantee some people will chime-in on this topic.

Don't forget that HP and CO had them at one point also.  Big grin

Edit: Eastern also had a few back in the day.

Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

NW as far as I know uses its 747's on Pacific crossings and Asia routes. All MSP-AMS is DC10, and DTW-AMS is A330.

By using the 744 and 742 (and even DC-10) to their fullest on Pacific routes, Northwest has completely avoided the 777. An interesting strategy... 777 are very expensive birds after all.

Actually, UA flies more than twice as many as NW does (if you don't include the currently inactive 742s).

For a while, the 744s were almost exclusively trans-pacific, with 777s doing the atlantic. Since some of the 777s were RTL, the 744s have been seen back on trans-atlantics, including on SFO-LHR, IAD-LHR and IAD-FRA
