They also serve SEA with a 744, I believe year-round, with a 777 added during the high season. And I believe PHX still sees regular BA 744 services, as well.

BA LHR-PHX daily. I manage to catch a glimpse of it nearly every afternoon. She's the biggest bird we get to see at PHX on a regular basis.

VS011 LHR-BOS converted to a 744 from a 346 on 31 August last although the flight on 13 September reverted for that day only to a 346.

It is possible to buy a tcket in the UK to fly trans-Atlantic with AI on, for example, their BOM-LHR-JFK flight and in the USA for the east bound return flight. So AI must be included amongst the airlines that provide a scheduled

Gone are the days when PHL got 747 service. Until maybe 2 years ago, LH still sent a 744 but now sends A343. BA stopped sending 747s a few years back, but added a 2nd daily frequency (772 and 763 now)

Cost of having a larger transatlantic hub with US I suppose.

The 70s, 80s and 90s were great 747s years for IAD. I guess 9/11 brought a big halt to D.C. 747s except for LH and UA. UA of course having a hub in D.C.

LH sent that summer 744 because of a fight with US over PHL-FRA. US started a second daily flight PHL-FRA during that year. LH responded with a 744. Eventually LH stopped sending the 744 when it became clear they were not going to influence US. So the 744 only came 2 years I think.

As for DTW

Concerning Europe, it's A330s galore *yawn*

However, NW used to send the 744 on one of the DTW-AMS-DTW flights back in 2002-2003 I think. Now they're all Japan bound.

LH usually sends us a 744 from FRA during the Auto Show. Now that their FRA flights are 2x daily (summer) and 12x weekly (winter), I wonder whether it will be returning for 08.

BA sent us the 744 before the downgrading to a 772 and finally a 763.

KL sent us 747s as well. Though they stopped flying here and now all NW AMS flights are codeshared with them.
The air in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious because it's the same the angels breathe.
