UA fly direct non stopping from SFO and LAX to places like SYD and HKG with B744s. Does UA have the most B744s, of any airline, utilised on these long legs greater than 7500 miles?

Quoting Richardw (Thread starter):

Actually, they have not flown LAX-HKG in the past few years. Their current longest route is ORD-HKG, as they have stopped flying LAX-MEL non-stop. Additionally, LAX-SYD is less than 7500 miles (barely) and SFO-HKG is less than 7000 miles.

QF flies more of these longer routes with 744s than UA does.

Taking it to include SFO-HKG, and all UA bases. How many B744s does UA have on these long routes?

Well, they have 31 744s active, and all circulate among their routes. Longer routes like these require 2-3 aircraft to run daily frequencies, so there is a guide.
