KLM 742, 743 and 744 all still in service (even though the website does not mention the 200s anymore, they were converted to have the same interior including stretched upper deck as do the 300s...). The first were ordered in 1969, I guess these must have been 100s?

Qantas had five variants, B747-38SP, -238, -238SCD, -338 and -438 in service simultaneously, however the -238SCDs have been converted for all-passenger use, reducing the series to four. The airline never owned -100s, but they have been leased from Aer Lingus and Evergreen.

SAA still operates B744, B743, B742 and B74SP.
At one time it operated the B741. I wouldn't be surprised that in the early 1990's it operated all five versions! (after receiving the B744 and before retiring the B741).
