Any airline that uses 727s, 747 classics, 707s (Saha only I'm afraid), DC-10s, L-1011s, A300 (non -600), or almost every Russian type that isn't brand new.

Interestingly, some newer Russian a/c still require a flight engineer. I believe Aeroflot has them on their Il-96s, despite it being a relatively modern aircraft.

Add to that list DC-8s (still used by a number of cargo carriers).

IIRC the Red Wings Tu-204 also still have a F/E, but somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
