5. Korean Air
6. United Airlines

9. = PAN AM / Cathay Pacific / ANA
Quoting ZKNBX (Reply 4): Am I correct in assuming that our figures for LH include recently ordered B748i?
As BA are likely to order the 747-8 SuperJumbo, there is a good chance that, when 747 production ceases, they will have placed the most orders, even though JL, SQ, and LH are all likely to order the 747-8F.

Quoting MauriceB (Reply 2): KLM had all the 4 types up until now, and was first 200 customer....
KL never had any 747-100s. Their first 747 was the first -200 built, PH-BUA, one of their original batch of 7 P&W-powered -200s, later sold and replaced with the final batch of GE-powered -200s which were later modified with the stretched upper deck and became -200SUDs, basically identical to the factory-built -300, of which KL had 3 in addition to the converted -200SUDs.
KL's first 747-200 in original and final livery. It later went to America West along with KL's 2nd and 3rd 747-200s (PH-BUB and BUC) for HP's brief and ill-advised venture into longhaul service to Hawaii and Japan. All 3 scrapped between 1994 and 1996.

Quoting VC10DC10 (Reply 17): Interesting. I had no idea that there was ever a 747-200 with only three windows per side on the upper deck (a la most of the 747-100s).
Quite a few early -200s had the 3-window upper deck originally. Boeing offered the 10-window option at a fairly early stage and most of the -100s/-200s with 3 windows were later modified to add the extra windows, as the original upper deck lounges were replaced with saleable seats on almost all 747 operators by the late 70s/early 80s.
A few other early -200s with 3 windows (all built in 1971):
