It would be nice to see AA with a 747 again. But, I know that it will never happen.

I am not sure that Alitalia used to fly the 744 in pax version, may be in F version. Alitalia has sold out all its pax 747.

China Southern owns+operates 744F's.

Kuwait Airways operates a 744 for Emir-not pax.

Emirates 747's are operated by Atlas

Evergreen, UPS, and Kalitta only operate 747 classics

Corsair reortedly will begin operating 744's later this year pending acquiring from UA

Even though part of China Airlines, don't forget Mandarin Airlines, Condor also flew them and the Sultan of Brunei. Didn't Abu Dubai or UAE just get two of them?

Thrust-
Alitalia never operated the 744, all 747-443s built were taken up immediately by Virgin Atlantic.

Pronto-
Both Air Pacific and Ansett currently and used to respectively operate the 744.

Aussie747-
Please read the initial topic of the thread prior to posting, titles can be deceiving. The topic is regarding current and past operators of the 744 only. There would be a far larger list of operators if it concerned the entire 747 fleet all the way back to 1969.

I didn't say they didn't ever have 'em - I said I have not built models of them...I build 1/200 scale airliners and those(6) are some of the ones I have not built

Egyptair also operate two B747-366Ms in their fleet SU-GAL (Hatshepsut) and SU-GAM (Cleopatra). Both aircraft will be retired this year after almost 16 years of service. The A346 is expected to be re-ordered to compensate the for the drop in capacity:

No MS is expected to re-order the A340-600 to replace the old 743s by the end of the year.
