Any 707's Left?

Tue Jan 02, 2001 1:24 pm

Are there any Boeing 707's still left in passenger service? Or are they all used as freighters now?
Anybody know just how many 707's or 720's are still flying today? (Not counting John Travolta's personal 707 jetliner).

Hi Lax,

Yes there are a few 707's left in Pax-Service. In Romania there are some with JARO mainly conducting charter flights, in Iran are one or two (not Iran air, some other regional carrier) and in the south of Egypt there is Air Luxor doing charter flights between Aswan, Luxor and one other touristic spot, however they are in talks for replacing it with some new equipment.

Another forum member is an expert in that direction : MEA_707 try to see his website it contains a lot of usefull informations about the 707

Hi Airmale, Eid Mubarak

Are you sure that they are still coming with the 707??? according to schedule it should be 727. If they still come with the 707 i would try to do it. Can i transit KHI wihtout a transit visa? (without leaving the airport of course)

Eid Mubarak Amir and thank you, well i havent been upto date with Iran air's schedule, yes you are right they have replaced them with the 727, and you can transit KHI without a transit visa 

P.S whats your nationality by the way?
