Korean Air 747-300 Routes

Tue Oct 02, 2012 4:57 am

Does anyone know what the routes were for Korean's 747-300's? Just curious to see how they differ from today. I'm talking back to like maybe year 2000 up till now.

Just before retirement, the Korean Air B743s were deployed to regional destinations like NRT, HND, and BKK.

They were also regular visitors to HNL, SYD, and HKG.

Quoting drerx7 (Reply 5):

It was indeed - the only 747-300 to be fatally crashed. Although it was a sub that night, for an Airbus A300-600R, which was the usual hardware on the route to GUM. In fact in the transcript you will see ATC queried the type with the pilot, cos they were expecting an Airbus. Awful accident, the most avoidable crash that could be imagined, before AF447.

In addition to ICN and GMP, there are KE passenger 743 photos in the database at:

LAX, JFK, ANC, YVR, YYZ, HND, NRT, SIN, HKG, FUK, KUL, PEK, PVG, CDG, MAD, SVO, SYD, BNE

Also converted 743 freighters at several of the above plus PEN, KIX, DFW.

The main route for the 743 before the 744 arrived was LAX to Seoul.
