Iran Air has weird A/C utilization...but for sure they use it on THR-LHR, THR-FRA, and I have seen pictures of leased 742's doing THR-CPH recently. I believe they also use it THR-ARN, THR-CDG, and perhaps on the China route (although I have only seen SP's)...

Last time I checked RAM's last 742 was on storage at CMN.

Orient thai 747 i believe 200 series is currently a frequent visitor at Accra (i believe it not daily). not sure who it's flying for but i believe its on behalf of LH as they have the same take off tmes and didnt notice LH at the airport.
i might be wrong

I believe AI operate the 743s to Tokyo. I think these aircraft transit BKK on their way there. 743s also used to operate to FRA until quite recently, and this service might still operate. I think the AI 742s see some service to Japan, but mostly used as a backup. I'm sure some of the AI folk will update this info in the morning when they read the link!

Air Atlanta's 743s (TF-ATI, TF-ATJ) operate the MAD-MIA-MAD route on behalf of Iberia (Aircraft and cockpit crews are Air Atlanta´s, while cabin crews are Iberia's).

However, Iberia has been forced to use the A346s, 744s (wet leased from Air Atlanta too) or lease a 743 from Air Pullmantur for the MIA flights since the 743s have been plagued with technical problems.

This has caused some serious disruptions and I think IB should reconsider their "business relationship" with Air Atlanta if the Icelandic company's maintenance cannot be trusted since there is a rumour saying that the 744s (TF-AMA, TF-AMB) seem to be having problems quite often too.

For the 99,9% of the customers, this is bad press for IB and not for Air Atlanta since what they see is an aircraft painted in Iberia colours, even though IB is not responsible for these aircraft's maintenance.

About IB's 747-200s, they stopped flying last May. The last 742 on IB's fleet (EC-DIB) made it's last revenue flight on May 1st on the MAD-TFN route, but was hit at TFN by a ground handling vehicle during turnaround so it wasn't able to made the return flight to MAD (which was supposed to be it's last flight anyway). Passengers were sent to MAD on a replacement aircraft while EC-DIB was repaired and later ferried back to Barajas with no pax...in a sad an undeserved final after 25 years of reliable service.

Iberia and AENA (Spanish Airports Authority) are negotiating the possibility of placing one of those 742s on permanent exhibition right next to the new Terminal 4 at Madrid-Barajas airport.

Iberia747,

thanks for the informative post.

Just slightly off-topic: can you explain to me why Iberia uses the newer, longer range 744 on MAD-TFN, but uses the 743 for longer routes such as MAD-MIA? It seems a "surprising" allocation of aircraft...

Mozart,

To be honest, I don't know. It would also make more sense to me if it was the other way around...743s for the TFN flights and 744s for the MIA flights.

About their cabin configurations, the 743s were initially fitted with 100% Iberia interiors (F/C/Y seats, curtains, cabin dividers, etc) when they joined the fleet in late 2000/early 2001, being the the upper deck used for First Class, the first and second lower deck sections for Business Class, and the remaining sections (3,4,5) for economy. These aircraft have not and will not recieve the new seats/cabin configuration (Business/economy...no First Class anymore) that is being applied to the entire A340-300/600 fleet as they are supposed to leave the fleet soon.

The 744s feature an all-economy class lower deck and Business Class seats on the upper deck and they did not recieve any change to their cabin interiors when they joined the fleet. They feature the same seats they had when flying with their previous operator (SQ) and only seat covers with the IB cloth colors were installed. That's why you will see that these aircraft feature PTVs in economy class although in IB they only show the same program that is being shown on the main screens.

That could be a reason for the route assignment...the 743s cabins are better configured for long flights.

The 744s are mainly used on the MAD-TFN-MAD and MAD-HAV-MAD flights although they have also operated flights to MIA, SDQ and SJO when a replacement aircraft has been needed.

Both 743s (TF-ATI and TF-ATJ) were originally delivered brand new to Varig in 1988 and were registered as PP-VOB and PP-VOC.

Varig used them until early 2000 when they went to ILFC for just a few days before going to Air Atlanta.

The 744s (TF-AMA and TF-AMB) were originally delivered brand new to Singapore Airlinres in 1989 and were registered as 9V-SMC and 9V-SME.

Quoting Mozart (Reply 21):
Iberia uses the newer, longer range 744

.
As you can see, the 743s are only 1 year older than the 744s.

I have flown on all of them (TF-ATI, TF-ATJ, TF-AMA, TF-AMB) and if you want my opinion all of them don't look well kept on the inside, with the 743s looking worse.

That's a big contrast when compared with the A340 fleet.

What IB should do if they really need an aircraft bigger than the A346 for certain routes (forget the A380..it would be too big) is to BUY a few used 744s, put them into the hangars for a couple of months and overhaul them completely, also replacing all their interiors with new elements (777-looking interiors as those featured in the 744ER would be great) and installing the new seats that are currently being installed on the A340 fleet...just my opinion.

Hi Smile

TG operate B747-300 every other day BKK-CPH and also on some flights BKK-ROM. They also use the B743 on domestic flights to HKT as well as Asian flights.

I have flown the TG B747-300 on the CPH-BKK run twice, lovely aircraft with a bery roomy cabin and great 34" seatpitch in Economy.

Configuration mostly, though I can see the case for using the more efficient 744 on shorter routes where they have fewer seat-miles to spread the risk

Mozart,

Air France doesn't operate anymore B747-200 PAX.
The last aircraft, F-GCBJ, was retired last June.
Only 8 B747F are still in service and should be all retired by 2008, replaced by B744F and/or B777LRF.

The 4 remaining B747-300 (F-GETA/TB F-BTDG/DH), inherited from UTA, are based at ORY and operate only on ORY-FDF and ORY-PTP.
Their retirement is scheduled for 2006. They will be replaced by B744 and B777-300ER.

Air India operate the 743s on the BOM-DEL-BKK or BOM-DEL-HKG-KIX route, but their schedule keeps changing by the day.

Their 747-200s have stopped scheduled service and operate only incase of an aircraft substitution, but are 99% of the time used for HAJ flights

Dhaka (DAC) in Bangladesh gets 11 weekly 747-100,200,and -300 flights on Saudi Arabian Airlines.

I believe it's 4x 741, 4x 742 and 3 x 743.

Routing are:

RUH-DAC x 5 weekly (3 x 743, 2 x 741)
JED-RUH-DAC x 2 weekly (741)
JED-DMM-DAC x 2 weekly (742)
JED-MED-DAC x 1 weekly (742)
JED-DAC x 1 weekly (742)

Until recently, Iranair used to fly 1 weekly 747SP to DAC via DXB. They use an A310 now.

OX did not operate any GH flights to the U.S.

Until recently, only HS-UTK was equipped with the new-style cockpit door. They have since installed that to more a/c.

Pullmantur Air has regular scheduled flights to Cancun and one other destination and flies charters for other airlines.

Currently I think they have 1 B747-200 which was formally with Air France and 1 B747-300 which was currently with Air Atlanta as TF-ARS?


A7 doesn't have a scheduled B747-200 flight to BCN from MAD.

Starting in October A7 will fly to Pekin from MAD and Pudong from BCN.

A7 also uses the B747 to MXP sometimes. A7 also charters its B747s as well as A310s.

Sorry if someone said this before, AR flies the B747-200 daily on its first flight to MAD from EZE.

TF-ARS is a PW-powered 743 that has been seen here in several occasions but it's not with Air Pullmantur. It has operated some flights for other airlines (IB and CU among them).

The one flying with Air Pullmantur is EC-IOO, GE-Powered and previously registered as TF-ATH. It flew with Iberia for a couple of years using this registration before going to Air Pullmantur and was still in full IB-Interiors until recently.

It was returned to Air Atlanta after it suffered damage in an incident at MAD.

QF uses the 747-300 on one domestic flight from SYD to PER to bring it there for some international flights to Singapore.

El Al's pax 747-200 has been spotted in AMS this summer.

The 747-200 operating for Air Algérie (AH) is Air Atlanta's TF-ARO. Last summer Air Algérie already had a Air Atlanta plane on short term lease. At that time it was TF-ARS (B743).

On some rare occasions this summer, Thai's 747-300 have visited ZRH. Usually these were triangle flights with CPH or FCO when they had not enough aircraft before the delivery of the first A346.

Not entirely. The airline is still around, but only flying domestic flights with 2 732's (LV-YGB and LV-ZZA), but you are correct that they have suspended the EZE-MAD whcih was operated by a 742 (LV-AZF) and 767's.
