Hey, I know that the 747-400`s have the "older" CRT display`s.
I also know that the 400ER´s have the "newer" LCD display`s,
so my question is are any airlines upgrading their CRT displays in the 747 to LCD`s ?

Not quite. I am in DXB right now and I flew a 744F, 9V-SFO, it's our newest 744F and it has the LCD displays. IIRC all 400's from about 18 months ago have the LCD displays. There is a PIP to upgrade the CRTs to LCD.

Quoting Andrewtang (Reply 20): The reason was to test the usage of LCD on 747-400. That was before the newest B744F joined the fleet. Thereafter she was converted back to CRT after the trial duration ended.
Why did they not opt to keep the LCD screens.
