Are there any 747-100s still flying today? If so with whom?


As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

I think this is the oldest 747 still flying. It's been flying for over 40 years!

There are at least two in pax configuration still flying; you'll have to take a trip to Thailand though. CK has a cargo 741 in service.

Is this airplane not a 747-300 and not a 747-100?

Nope. Two 747-100 were built with the stretched upper deck, and both were in service with JAL originally. They were not converted to the SUD, they were factory built like that.

Does anybody know if any 100's were ever converted to the SUD?

That's interesting, I never knew that. So essentially these are 747-100 SUD built in 80's.

Thanks. I had no idea there were so many still flying. I would think they will be retired soon.

You're wrong! Although 31 years isn't bad. Parked next to her at Abu Dhabi a couple months back, she's in perfect condition. Might get a chance to fly her later this month. Fingers crossed.

That's a -100 baby, the stretched upper deck was added after delivery (at least, that's what KLM did to all their 747 Classics).



fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

From what I can see, these aircraft were delivered as 747-100 SUD's in the 80's originally. From what I understand, they never had the short upper deck. Is that the case, and why would they order a 100 in the 80's versus a 300?

You have to remember that these are B747-100SR (SR = Short Range), not the regular -100. They wanted SR with a longer upper deck, not the -300s. B747-300SR was only offered later on, I believe.
