Anybody want to try a 747-400 in US Airlines other than UAL and NW?
Ex: TWA, AA, Delta, US Airways, America West, Midwest Express.

Yeah, but there aren't any. Isn't that a trip!! That's why I'm taking Virgin Atlantic or British Airways to London next year so that I can fly on a 744. The only one we had other than those two is Tower Air. Does Continental still fly 747?? Haven't seen a CO 747 at LAX in a long time.

I'm afraid all the CO 747s have been retired.

The only other US carrier flying the 744 is Atlas Air.

747s formerly flown by US carriers (once upon a time, there were quite a few):
UA: 741, 742, 744; -SP
NW: 741, 742
PA: 741, 742; -SP
TW: 741; -SP
DL: 741
AA: 741; -SP
BN: 741; -SP
EA (Eastern): 741
TZ (Transamerica): 742
Polar Air: 741
UPS: 741
Federal Express: 741
National: 741
Flying Tigers: 741, 742
Metro International: 741
Tower Air: 741
Seaboard World: 742
World Airways: 742
Air National: 741

Northwest still flies and owns alot more 747-200's than they do 400's. They also operate the 747-200 freighter also.

If you are looking to fly a 744 then I suggest a trip from DEN to SFO or vice versa on United. I hope to fly this sometime at the end of February  Big thumbs up Also they fly 777 on the same routes.

I've had the joy of flying on 4 US carriers operating 741s, and SPs.

American had a 747 ready to take over Braniff's DFW-London route as soon as Braniff filed chapter 11. In additon to Braniff's Orange SP and it's American replacement, I flew on several Pan Am 741s, including Ocean Rover, and on a NW domestic leg (DFW-SFO) of a Tokyo run. Alas, I haven't flown on a 747 since that 1986 flight, and certainly I have not had the chance of flying the 744. I guess for domestic traffic, all US airlines would rather have frequency than volume. Japan seems to be able to support domestic 747 routes.

The whole point for this was to ask you designers to try a 747 in other US Airlines liveries! Now let's try this again!

Oh! Well it sure didn't sound like that was what you were asking. I really misunderstood your post. I thought you were talking about flying, not designing. Had I known that's what you meant, I would have never responded to your post.

Thanks for clearing things up.

There are no other commercial airline in the states that use 747-400. United and NW are the only two who use them. I'm not taking about charter/cargo operaters just passenger airlines with scheduled service.

AA--no
DL--no
CO--no
AW--no
US--no
SW--definitly not
And this includes all smaller airlines with regular scheduled service.........dr

Also you can go from denver to washington DC (DCA) or Denver to O'hare on a 744 on United ( thanks Serge for giving me that Idea, are you from Colorado too?)
