I'm interested in determining which airports have had scheduled passenger 747 flights either in the past or currently. Remember, PASSENGER service only and SCHEDULED service vs. charters or otherwise. For airports that aren't obvious 747 candidates listing the service offered and airline would also be interesting. I'm not a particulary well-traveled interational flier, so I'll start the list off from what I think I know of U.S. 747 operations:
San Diego SAN (British Airways)
Los Angeles LAX
San Francisco SFO
Portland PDX (United to NRT)
Phoenix PHX (America West to HNL and British Airways)
Dallas DAL (Braniff, plus there is a picture on a.net of a Delta 747 at Love)
St. Louis STL
Fort Lauderdale FLL (South African and Air Canada)
Baltimore BWI (KLM)
Pittsburgh PIT (British Airways)
New York JFK
There are three additional airports that I suspect may have had 747 service but I'm not sure: OAK, CLT and CVG.

you are correct with CVG, Air France and Sabena used to fly their B747s into CVG on code sharing flight with Delta.
Another airport that used to see B747 service was Savannah, GA when Delta flew their infamous heavies on a continuing flight from LAX through ATL.

Delta flew scheduled 747's from MSY to LAX and DFW back in the mid 70's when they operated that aircraft.
And I'm fairly certain that Pan Am flew in a 747 or two during the days of the DL/PA Interchange flight from MSY to London via ATL and IAD.
Of course, many 74's have visited New Orleans over the years, including: NW 747-200, UA 747-200/400, BA 747-400, Aer Lingus 747-100, KLM 747-400, Kalitta 747-200, LH 747-400, Iberia 747-200, Air Atlanta 747-200....just to name a few.

CLE - None anymore, but at first, United had a hub here with 747 flights as many as you can think of. Then they pulled out and the chartered 747's were the only ones left. Then the charter flights went under and the last 747 that was scheduled at CLE was in 1999, when the Browns chartered a NW 747 for one of their games.

In Canada, YOW, YWG, YHZ and YEG all had 747 scheduled service at one time or another in the past. YYC still gets on-again, off-again 744 flights to LHR with AC and scheduled 744F Cargolux freighters regularly.

PHX also had AA and NW (the first 744 service) and PDX had NW.
Now for the shocker. TUS, according to an old OAG I have somewhere, has A weekly NW 744 flight from MSP, 1993 I believe. Let's see if anyone can explain why this was. A bit of a tease as I know a plausible explanation.
