Airline With The Most 747's

Tue Feb 12, 2002 11:48 am

I was reading a Aug 2000 issue of Airways and an article on Singapore airlines mentioned that they were the worlds largest operator of the 747-400. Is this still the case and which airline has the most 747's(100,200,300,400 series)combined? I'm thinking that JAL and BA are up there.

BA is the largest 744 operator. In a later issue, Airways admitted the mistake.

JAL should replace some of their 747s. Some of them are -100Ds!
