Argh! That grammar is horrific. Sorry.

Does UAL send its 744s on short flights and if so, where?

Yes Khoa.Quite a few flights from DEN to the West Coast use 744s and apparently LAX-SFO has at times recently.

Singapore_Air, United this past summer had an incredible amount of short 747-400 flights. From the top of my head, here is the list of 747-400 service.

LAX-DEN
LAX-ORD
LAX-SFO
SFO-ORD
SFO-DEN
DEN-ORD
SYD-MEL

Alot of these flights are no longer current. I know UA 863/862 SYD-MEL-SYD is still current. I will go look on the United Airlines employee website to see what the current short haul 747-400 flights are for you.

Cheers!

LAX-SFO?

What were the flight numbers that 744 flew on this route?

From what I heard it was Sundays only and may have been used on scheduled flights just to reposition.

Thank you all.

This is a good chance to fly the MelJet 747-400 and as I do not like sitting at the computer playing Flight Simulator for a long chance, and I've downloaded the UAL 744, this is good and useful information. Big grin

Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

I was going to try and fly that 747-400 on UA 864 to SFO out of LAX on Saturday Nov 9th. However the flight is no longer showing up on UAL's employee website. A shame, Looks like I will have to go to ORD-NRT-ORD for the day just to get my 747-400 fill for the month.
