Wish we still had those (I think they are China Air since late 70's)but since they are 4 engines we got rid of them. I heard a rumor they wanted to do ATL-Inchon in 747's for KE.

I have been on America West's 747 from PHX-HNL and HNL-LAS. At the time I was young so it didn't impress me at the time but now it will be remembered as one of those oddities in aviation history.

Sorry Deskdeiver, next time, you might want to spend 5 seconds and do a simple file search.

And another thing, who said that "Delta will get 747-400s, I guarentee it!" What basis do you have for making this statement? Can anyone varify or comment? Thanks.

Delta and America used to have 747's. If you search for them here, then you can see the pictures of them.

Go Delta,

Where did you hear that Delta was going to do 747s ATL-ICN?

KE already does a 744 from ATL-SEL (soon ICN) via DFW. Would this be in addition to this flight or a replacement?

KE has 747's in ATL? I thought the only 747's in ATL were South African. I just heard a rumour about it, nothing serious. If they do do that it will probably be 777.

Go Delta -

Yes, KE has been running 744s into ATL since 1994, first to Seoul via ORD and now DFW (I would expect them to start a SEL-ATL nonstop once ICN opens and DL resumes their codeshare agreement). Air France switches to 744s with the summer schedule. These and SAA are the only scheduled pax 747s into ATL (but dont' forget all the 747F operators in ATL though - CI, KE, Alitalia, Polar, LH, JL, AF, Martinair...). I kind of figured BA would also run 744s this summer, as they are apparently not flying twice a day between ATL-LGW as they did last summer. But last I checked BA is sticking with just one 777 flight.

I'd love to see DL operate 747-400s, but I really doubt it will happen. DLs long term fleet plans are all about Boeing twins. I think DL could have gone with 744s instead of the MD-11. There was obviously concern that 747s were too big for DL's pax traffic, but I think they could have operated them as combis and made a killing hauling cargo & pax to FRA, NRT, LGW, GRU...etc. But right now, the highest capacity plane DL operates is the old Trisaurus (L-1011) with up to 302 seats. The 764s and 777s that are replacing them have fewer seats! I guess this illustrates that DL has little interest in high capacity planes. The A380 is right out, that's a no brainer!

Yes, I guess you are right. I swear I thought only SA used 747's in ATL. I once saw a Lufthansa 4 engine from a distance but I thought it was an A340. BA had twice daily to ATL? Why do people go to Atlanta (except to get DL connections)? I could see JFK or LAX but ATL?

You have to be there on a Tuesday or Friday evening to catch KE's 744s in ATL. KE 35 arrives about 9:30 pm and KE 36 leaves at 11:20. On Friday the 13th (gasp!) it will leave with me on it....
