I am new here, and just joined the forum even though I followed the site for years,

I heard some A.netters say a while ago that UA's IAH-NRT flight will be flown by the 744 starting in September, I hope this is true. If so, I plan to take photos and plenty of them!

I am guessing, but I highly doubt that we will see the UA747 on that route this soon, but I could be wrong.

Based on UA's hub at NRT, the flights at IAH would not make a turnaround, so another 744 would have to be positioned into IAH to make it work without a 17 hour aircraft layover. I believe something like IAH-LHR could be flown with a 744 to make the rotations work, but that would take two aircraft.

With the 747 fleet being the size that it is, I would be surprised. Ua maxes the flying out in summer and the rotation does not work. I was surprised that HNL got the 747, but loads are good enough.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

AND HNL is close to Japan to use only one plane which is on the ground in HNL for only a few hours. HNL is from Japan what FRA is from JFK.

For Y, if I had my choice, I'd take any of their 777s over their 747s. I am headed to MNL from IAD across NRT and am glad it will be a 777. While I am not thrilled about the new 3x3x3 seating, at least it has the new entertainment system. Their new J on the 747 was very good (7 hours of sleep on SFO-SYD: what better test is there?).


...are we there yet?
