I know JAL and ANA still have some B 747 Classics. Where do they fly them to?

JAL flies them to HKG and BNE right? Also a number of places..... I know YVR is no longer served by classics.

Japan Airlines still has 3 741 and 5 742 in service. I flew on a 742 from MNL to NRT. I really wonder where the 741 fly to.

ANA has two 742 left in their fleet. As the both have a 3 class configuration I guess they are used on Intl services to places such as HNL etc.

I think JAL uses some of their 747 Classics on domestic routes within Japan!

JAL still has 25 747 classics still in pax service. The 3 SRs are -100s and only fly domestic routes. The LRs are the -200s, and -300s. These fly routes to Asia, Australia, Guam, Saipan, and Hawaii.

JL's three 741s are actually these:
One 747-146B(SR)
Two 747-146B(SUD) - only two aircraft of this type ever produced.
All three only fly domestically.
All the int'l 747 classics fly Asian/Hawaii & Australian routes. Unless on a charter, they don't leave this region.

NH's 742s fly domestically but have typical domestic configuration but the int'l galleys are still there. Therefore, seating is slightly less at around 450. NH has only one or two SRs left remaining. The rest of the classics are slated to be retired this fiscal year.

They used to fly international right?

Yes, the B742 was the first ship that opened up NH's long-haul routes. The first flight was to IAH. I believe that they were also used on flights to LAX in the beginning before the 744 started arriving in the fleet.

Later, they were used on Europe flights from KIX (no longer operated). If you take a trip down to NRT, it is amazing. The number of 747 classics owned by NW and JL. JL from what I know still uses them on select days on NRT-BNE, NRT-MNL, NRT-HKG, NRT-ICN, etc.

KIX still sees many of these; I took a flight KIX-BNE-SYD a year ago.

NH's 2 -200s are JA8174 and JA8175.

HNL gets more JL -200s during peak travel seasons. Some have even received the new colors.

NH used to fly NRT-ARN, LHR, CDG, JFK, LAX, IAD (mayde SYD) with only 6 742s until the 744s arrived in the early 90s. Obviously, all the routes were not served daily.

Actually, NW has a much reduced presense of 742s of late. There is only NRT-SPN, GUM LAX, & HNL. NRT-HNL arrives and departs after dark, so it's not as noticeable. Of course, NW still flies a gaggle of 742Fs.

Other regulars with 747 classics are AI & IR. With deliveries of second-hand aircraft, still amazes me that NRT-India route hasn't gone to 744 or 777. The routes regularly sees 74Ds & 742s. Obviously, AI sees no need to place newer equipment on the route.

Japan Asia flies its classics to HKG right?

Only only domestic for ANA right? No international AT ALL for now?

Will they stay for a while?
