Hello fellow 747 fans, let us make a complete record of all 747 routes before
our favorite aircraft becomes a museum piece. But hopefuly 747adv will materialize---cross our fingers!
To start, let us think of all the 747 routes of the following 5 airlines. We will start with 5 airlines for now so not to be overwhelming. If no more responses come in after 1 week, I will add additional airlines in the list.
The basic information that I need are: name of the airline, IATA code (if you know), specific type of 747, routing, frequency of flights, and the year or decade of service. Include all scheduled, cargo, charters, military charters, hajj flights, refugee flights, relief flights, include technical/refuel stops. If you have the complete schedule/timetable and flight numbers will be nice to keep on record.
Here is the first 5 airlines to concentrate on:
1. Air Siam VG 747-100 BKK-HKG-HND-HNL 70s 3x/week
Any other VG 747 routes?
2. Air Asia 747-100 KUL-JED hajj flights 90s a/c leased from Tower Air with Air Asia markings on fuselage. Any other Air Asia 747 routes?
3. Ariana Afghan FG 747-100 Kabul-JED hajj flights post 9/11 a/c donated by United Airlines. Any other FG 747 routes?
4. Braniff BN 747SP LAX-SEL-SIN 80s
747SP LAX-GUM-HKG 80s
any other BN 747 routes and military charters to Vietnam? Don't forget to
specify whether it's A 747-100 or SP!
5. Aeroposta 747-100 Buenos Aires-Miami late 80s. Any other Aeroposta 747 routes?
Thanks for posting and long live the 747!
