There are several topics that cover this in detail under such titles of "United 747 Domestic Routes" and so on. Please do a search for those keywords.

However, becuase Im here and responding here you go. These are routes that have been or are 747s:

SFO-DEN
SFO-ORD
SFO-HNL
SFO-IAD*
LAX-ORD
LAX-DEN
DEN-SFO
DEN-LAX
DEN-ORD
ORD-SFO
ORD-LAX
ORD-DEN

*Frequent equipment swaps on UA970.

just to clear a few things up,these are UNITED'S actual routes using the 747.

DEN-LAX FLT 539 5:40P
DEN-LAX 1651 7:55P

DEN-SFO 1065 5:00P
DEN-SFO 409 7:45P

DEN-ORD 958 12:15P
DEN-ORD 966 1:45P

LAX-DEN 1154 2:15P

SFO-DEN 372 7:20A
SFO-DEN 756 11:25A

ORD-DEN 253 10:20A
ORD-DEN 967 2:45P
ORD-DEN 263 4:40P

LAX-ORD 114 7:00A
SFO-ORD 858 9:00A

These are the real 747 routes,notice there is no SFO-HNL,we dont fly the 747 to hawaii anymore.
SFO-IAD was being swapped out due to heavy european loads into LHR.

hope this clears it all up for you.

I am scheduled to fly DEN-ORD on Sept. 25th. I was surprised to see I couldn't schedule the usual UA 744 anymore, just 777s and 767s.

What gives?

In July, not sure about August, but, three days out of the week, one of the SFO-HNL flights was a 747. This was due to the fact that the equipment that would normally fly on SFO-HNL was repositioned for DEN-HNL.

United still has daily 747-400 operations into HNL. The flight comes from Tokyo's Narita International airport. You might want to check on that one. FYI: Its really easy to pass ride on that flight.

It appears that this Saturday flight 1969 is a 747 from SFO to HNL
and Sunday flight 1966 from HNL to SFO is a 747. Every Saturday out of SFO a 747-400 will serve HNL.

Actually, that plane that flies UA970 goes right back to SFO as UA971, or atleast it did last monday. Sometimes there are swaps on the Europe flight, but often, the plane just does turns.

Just a quick correction to my post. The 747 is an extra section flown once a week.

I was just doing a search for December 18, 2002 for any 744 from Denver to ORD, SFO, and LAX. Nothing. No 744s at Denver.

Dammit.

When I fly on 12-18-02, I'll think of your birthday. Heck, I'll even try to schedule my flight on a 767 in your name!  Wink/being sarcastic

Anyway, why is UA parking more 747s? I thought the traffic yield was back.

This taken directly from UAL.COM,

United Airlines 1969
Boeing 747-400 2:55 pm
San Francisco (SFO) 4:58 pm
Honolulu (HNL) 1st Y, Biz Y, Coach WL Non-stop 2398

Now call me crazy, but how much more "REAL" do you want a scheduled 747-400 service to be?!? Remember, facts first. Posting second!

MOUNTAINRIDGE,
actualy i am not wrong, i posted weekly scheduled flights not 47's operating on just one day.

you might want to check,i would say 747 from the mainland on sun.
not 747's all week.


kaitakfan not you again,a thorn in my side.dont need to hear the 24 pacific crossing crap again,yes i would hardly call one flight a day only one day a week what he was looking for.read the post,i got this from it."which ua domestic flights are operated by 747's. i figured maybe he wanted weekly scheduled flights.

iluv767,
i almost needed to take the flight that comes from NRT i was coming from PEK,sorry forgot that one.

Ual777Contrail,

With all due respect, KaiTakFan did not post anything about his 24 or what ever pacific crossings. The saturday service to Hawaii is on a 747, and the plane does come back on Sunday.

So, its still 747 operations isnt it? Last time I checked, SFO-HNL was a domestic flight, so Im not wrong.

MOUNTAINRIDGE,
I didnt say you were wrong,i was talking about the scheduled daily departures not just on sat and sun.

i take that back, i was the one who was wrong.dont take it so hard man.

iluv767, i was joking about kaitakfans last post or argument we had a month a go about how he felt the 747 was a more comfortable plane and i disagreed and said the 777 was.he said he had 24 pacific crossings on a 747 and he should know better.sorry for the confusion.

What are the yields on their 747 domestic flights? Is it economical to use such a large aircraft for such short routes?

Ual777Contrail, Now every time you are busted on an issue you are not 100% correct on by myself, are you gonna have to resort back to your little cheap shots because you know you I am right?? Do us all a favour and please try and keep on track with relevant issues of the moment. Anyways, to keep on track here. Its your mistake for jumping to conclusions and ruling out a regularly scheduled domestic 747-400, just as the question had asked, only due to the fact you thought it was irrelevant for the reason of only being once a week. Now while we are speaking of 747 service to Hawaii, if you had not seen already. I supplied your question with an answer regarding the old 747-100 seating capacity to Hawaii. 42 seats in first class. Consisting of 16 seats in the upper deck and 26 seats in the nose. In economy there was a total of 408 seats. Capacity total of 450 total seats.

Cheers
Brian

Bunga777

From my experience traveling on the UA 747-400s domestically they are usually full in Economy, if not oversold. However First and Business class are another story. Those cabins on the majority of flights I have encountered or looked into have fairly wide open premium cabins. Now that 747-400 to Hawaii is a different story. Looks to go out at about full capacity in Economy and Business class with first class looking pretty good as well! I could bet that aircraft is making its money's worth! I know a few Airliners.net members will laugh when I say this, but I wish those 747-400s could be back in their rightful spot flying across the Pacific instead of these silly little 2 hour hops.

777Contrail:

I wanted to say thanks for the nice comments stooge! First off, I don't consider myself a "fountain of knowledge". Unlike your pompous self, I do some research and clarification to answer questions that are factually correct. (Hint Hint, you may want to try this sometime). Until you step down from acting as the know all, high authority United Airlines representative here at Airliners.net, supplying the public with poor info, you deserve to be corrected!! Its a simple concept here! No need to get so pissy! Didn't mean to hurt you feelings. Scary to think if you screw things up and act this belligerent at UAL working out on the ramp as much as you do here at airliners.net... god help UNITED.
