I've seen a few AF B747-400 with the rear "combi" cargo door, however they were all operated in full passenger configuration for 393 pax. This was however during the summer, and we have not had any 744's all winter here at JFK, so not really sure if it was a seasonal thing or not. But yes, AF does have 744's that are not combi.

All Air France and Lufthansa B747-400 are operated in an all passenger confuguration. However some of the aircraft originally operated as combis but has since been changed. As far as I recall AF had 5 combis delivered (F-GISA,-GISB,-GISC,-GISD & -GISE) + one (F-GEXB) taken over when AF aquired UTA while Lufthansa had 7 (D-ABTA,-ABTB,-ABTC,-ABTD,-ABTE,-ABTF.-ABTH)! But again, all now operate as all passenger aircraft!

RE: LH combi routes - different to say, they never indicated Combi or all pax in the timetable. TPE was always Combi (because the plane painted in Condor colours to trick the Chinese was a combi), I know people who were on BOG-CCS and NRT flights that were combis.
