Unusual Planes At SEA And LAX...

Sun Aug 29, 2004 2:32 pm

Hi everyone...

I wanted to ask for some clarification on some observations I made at SEA and LAX.

I saw a UA 777-200, DL 767-400, and a China Airlines A330 all at SEA today. Do these carriers regularly operate these aircraft types into SEA?

Also, driving away from the LAX employee lot, I saw a Korean Air MD-11 landing. However, I struggled to find the "cargo" titles on the aircraft. Does KE still operate the MD-11 (pax or cargo)? I was under the impression that the type was completely retired from both pax and cargo operations.

Thank you for your time and help.

Happy flying!

Warm Regards,

Korean Air does operate the MD11 into LAX as a cargo carrier. It often departs LAX at around 630pm on 25R. They also fly the 747 in as a cargo plane. The only passenger planes KE flies in are its 744s and 772s. Once in a while, they'll bring in a 773.

The UA 777 @ SEA goes to NRT on a daily basis.

Delta does operate two daily 767-400s between ATL and SEA.

Thank you all for your replies.

SEA has a lot more international service than I thought.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

During the summer season, I believe there is also a 772 that operates on ORD-SEA to handle increased traffic, especially for connections to points in Europe.
