Ok, United lets get a few things straight.
TWA finnished retirement of its 741s around mid 1997. TWA does not own nor have any 767-400s on order. TWA has changed its A330 order to A318 aircraft.
TWA most likely will not order the 744 anytime soon seeing that most of its high volume transAtlantic routes have been cut due to poor profitability because of the Karabu ticketting scheme. These include, MXP, MAD, BCN, FCO, LIS, ATH, LHR, and FRA (from JFK).
If TWA does order a new long range widebody it will be something smaller, possibly that 767-400 or a 777-200.

I think that TWA would be better suited for a 767-400 on the JFK-CDG and JFK-the middle east routes but the rest of the long distance like say DCA-LAX can be well suited by a 757. Mabe TWA can get back into LHR if the talks between the US and the UK go smoothly I can imagine 767-400s flying LAX-LHR, STL-LHR and JFK-LHR.

Oh your just a riot Dan.
Perhaps, you could enlighten us on which longer "Int'l Flights, and possibly High-Density Domestic flights" TW operates that warrants this aircraft. Also, you idiot, the 747's use as a domestic airliner is severly being diminished. Airlines realize now that instead of flying from A to B to C, they can fly smaller planes A to C, hence the proliferation nice types like 753, 763, 764, 772, A335, etc...

RussNEEDsAlotOfHelp, Ok you no good Fucking prep, Longer Int'l Flights are like from STL-TKO, or STL-HKG. Also, Just because not many airlines use the 747 on domestic flights doesent mean you cant do it.
I dont give a shit if you make fun of my name. If I was on the same football field with you, You wouldnt have a prayer

747 on domestic routes diminishing?? I think not.
United Airlines has been increasing it's domestic 747 use.. I even took one from O'Hare to Denver and O'Hare - San francisco (Flt 139 or whatever it is has been a consistent 744 departure.. normally leaves around the 915 - 955A time area)
Chicago - San Fran 2 744s and 747 models
Chicago - Denver 1 744
Denver - San Fran 1 744
Chicago - Los Angeles 1 744
Chicago - Dulles 1 744
Honolulu - San Francisco 2 747
Los Angeles - Denver 747
Northwest occasionally plops a 747 into LAX from MSP as well

Whoa! What a mess here. First of all, as TWANeedsNOhelp states, all of TWA's
747 classics were retired by February
of 1998. The last one was retired in
Feb 1998 after operating TLV-JFK.
TWA does not operate the 767-400 nor does it
operate the A330. It does not have these jets
on order either. The only widebody jets TWA
flies are the 767-200 and the 767-300ER. So
far, it has no orders for widebodies.
TWA could never fill a 747-400. It does not
have the route structure and scale of ops to
do this. This would be the quickest way to a
TWA will continue to build its fleet around the
narrowbody MD80/717 and A318 family of jets
and the 757 for higher density routes as well
as its growing transcon network. The 767-300
is an excellent plane for TWA. Perhaps in the
future it might consider the 767-400 for its
extra capacity, but nothing beyond that.
