Where do they fly their B 747-400s to? I mean long haul.

JL: NRT-JFK, NRT-YVR??? What about GRU and LHR?

NH: NRT-CDG, NRT-FRA?

Will they be back on routes like NRT-SFO, NRT-LAX some day?

United Airline,

I know for sure that NH changed NRT-FRA to daily B77W since September 1, 2009. For CDG it's a mix of B744 and B77W.

For JL I can't tell.

Chris

NRT-ORD has been all 77W since October 25.

MEX service ends January 18.

One of JL's 2 daily NRT-HKG flights is being downgraded from 744 to 763 effective January 12.

I believe you missed NGO-HNL as well. I watch this bird take off on some evenings.

Quoting United Airline (Thread starter):
NRT-SFO, NRT-LAX

Very unlikely. Besides, they just went B77W starting this year if I am not mistaken.



Flown on: DC-10-30, B747-200B, B747-300, B747-300SR, B747-400, B747-400D, B767-300, B777-200, B777-200ER, B777-300

what about BKK?
JL used to fly 747 to BKK at least when I was there a few months ago (June)...
Did they change that as well?

747-400 is yesterdays plane. More and more carriers are replacing them.

The type is no spring chicken having been in service now for some 21 years.

Hopefully the B 747-8 and the A 380 will continue to embrace the skies with large orders. And of course the new Y1 double decker B 747 replacement

NH is down to three 744s. Two are used on the NRT-CDG and another for charter work/spare.
When additional 77Ws arrive, that's it for the 744s.
Though the 744Ds will continue to fly until Boeing gets act together with the 787.

I further checked, JL B744's currently also operates:

NRT-SIN (JL711/712)
NRT-TPE (JL641/648)
NRT-BKK (JL707/708) + charters to Middle East (JED) are routed through BKK also.
NRT-GUM (operated by JO)

So, all routes are mentioned now in the topic.
