This is a dumb question, but is United the only 747 operator to operate only the 400 series (currently). I know they used to have -100, -200, SP, but these are all retired now.

That is actually not true, they still operate the 747-200, they have very few of them but they are still flying with passengers! I saw one at EWR the other day.

Actually, the 747-200 has indeed been retired by United. The last flight took place in December.

No Korean operates the -300, and some -200F's. CX, and SQ both own -300's but leese them out.

I am positive it was the -200 series, I even have a picture of it that airliners.net did not accept. I also saw one in LAX about 2 months ago.

kakst@juno.com, thanks!


I flew on a UAL 747-200 last July from SFO-HNL. It is sad to know the plane I flew on, such a nice one, is now in the desert.  Sad

According to UA's website, the 747-200 is still in service since it's listed under "current fleet". Unless the website isn't current! Big grin

UA's website also lists both versions of the DC10 as "current", though the -10 was retired last October & the -30 was retired last month.
