During the summer of 1997, United replaced one of there two daily 747 400 flights, from LAX to NRT with an 747 200B. I thought the aircraft was a 747 222B, but I herd the 747 222B's was only for JFK-NRT. So did United's used 747 238B for these flights?
PS: For those who saw those 747 222B on the JFK-NRT route take off. How powerful and loud was there take off, because JFK-NRT is pushing a 747 200B to it's max, and they had to have to use full power.
