Where does Asiana fly its B 747-400s to?

I did HKG-ICN-LAX on 30th October. The ticket said it was going to be a B 747-400 but it came out to be a B 777-200ER. Why?

I think they only have 4 now 2 Combis and 2 Full PAX mainly flying to LAX and JFK.

KE fly them everywhere, LHR, FRA, CDG, LAX, JFK, ATL, ORD?, HKG, SYD and AKL seasonally. There are others, TLV I think now to.

Asiana have the following passenger 744s left in the fleet.

HL7417 (Combi)
HL7418
HL7421 (Combi)
HL7423 (Combi)
HL7428

I beleive the full PAX aircraft are used to JFK as ZK-NBT said.

Why if they are in the process of getting rid of them. The difference between OZ's 747s and 777's interior is like day and night.

I think they will still be around for a long time to come right?

A few of them have been upgraded. I had a B 747-400 combi from HKG-ICN and it was an upgraded cabin with AVOD, touch screen PTVs, new business class seats etc.

Norcal773, is right.

Asiana Airlines will return all of its leased Boeing 747-400 passenger aircraft, while it has a plan to convert three B747-400M to freighters. In order to compensate for the loss of these passenger jets, Asiana will introduce two Boeing 777-200ER aircraft and one Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Asiana plans discussions with Boeing in September for further aircraft procurement.

I believe this is the order to replace the leased 744's they are returning soon.

but they've been upgraded their two 744s with AVOD and brand new seats. I wonder why they did this even though they're going to return it.

Yikes. They're gonna have one 77W? That's odd.

Yeah, that doesn't make a lot of sense.

You forgot to mention the QF A380 you saw at your adopted home of LAX the other day. You even made a postcard with the whale on it.  duck 

On another note, I think OZ is one of the most underrated airlines out there.
