Where Is UA's Biggest 747-400 Base? I think SFO and LAX are the biggest.

I assume it would have to be Los Angeles (LAX)

It is SFO. In terms of number of flights and pilots based there. They fly to LHR, NRT (2x), KIX, SEL, PVG, TPE, HKG, and SYD from there. LAX now has NRT, HKG, AKL, SYD, And HKG-DEL and LAX-IAD-LHR. It is actually probably 3rd in size after SFO and ORD. Hope this helps.

Since UA's 744s operate primarily on transpacific flights, SFO would be my guess since UA also has a large hub there and maintenance facilities; LAX would be a (close) second.

I think the majority of UA's 747-400 fleet congregate at SFO for two reasons:

1. SFO--being UA's West Coast hub--has a very large number of 747-400 flights to Asia and Europe using the 744. You see a lot of 744's parked at the ramp next to the (former?) AA hangar north of Runway 28R/10L most of the day. Between 9 am to 8 pm local time, the majority of the gates at the G concourse at SFO have UA 744's parked there preparing for international flights.

2. UA has a major 744 maintainance operation at OAK, which can do the equivalent of D-check overhauls.
