The 744 is used to fly to FRA every summer season because the 777 is too small. The same is the case with the LHR route. Last weekend I spend maybe 4 hours alltogether at LHR because of the poor weather and I saw 3 United 744s!

United does not operate the 747 out of New York to London. From JFK it flies three times daily with the
767-300ER and once daily from Newark with the 777.
From San Francisco and Washington DC, it uses one
747-400 on one of the frequencies because of the
higher demand attributed to summer travel. During
the winter, the aircraft are replaced with 777-200
When United first started flying to Europe, it was
using the 747-100, 747-200, and 747-SP to places
that included Heathrow, Paris, Milan, Rome, Madrid,
