Quoting Richardw (Thread starter): UA fly direct non stopping from SFO and LAX to places like SYD and HKG with B744s.
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.
Quoting Richardw (Thread starter): Does UA have the most B744s, of any airline, utilised on these long legs greater than 7500 miles?
QF flies more of these longer routes with 744s than UA does.
