Please search for JA8965 on the searchengine. It is a 747 from ANA. It has no winglets, but everyone says it is a -400 series. So what about it? Is it a -400 with its winglets cut off, or did all the photographers make a mistake?

ANA have swopped some of their domestic fleet of 747-400 to international by adding winglets. This was done to level out the number of cycles done ie a domestic short haul 747 will do more than a longhaul 747.
JA8957 was a domestic when i felw on it in 1996 but i have seen it since at LHR
