I'd guess that they use them on their Japan routes. I know they usually use 747-400s on their Australian routes.

I think they use their 747-200s on their shorter Pacific routes, like Japan-West Coast USA or to Hawaii. I saw a -200 at ORD the other morning bound for SFO, then on to NRT that afternoon if I'm correct.

UAL used to use there 747-100/200 to do most of the routes to Heathrow along with the 767. The 777 has primarily taken over the carriers routes to Heathrow. United's 747-100/200s now ply such routes as Los Angeles-Hong Kong, Los Angeles-Sydney, Chicago-Hong Kong, or Chicago-Honolulu along with their newer 747-400s.
