Trying To Fly On My First 747

Thu Jul 14, 2011 2:06 am

I could use a little help from the experts on here. I'm going to London in January and one of the things on my bucket list is to fly on a 747. I'm sure there is a route or flight still operated between New York and London that is still using a 747. I would ideally like to fly out of Newark. Can anyone suggest a flight or airline? Many thanks.

JHCRJ700, I do not know what the schedules will be like in January, but currently (July) both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operate Boeing 747-400s between New York Kennedy JFK and London Heathrow LHR; and Virgin Atlantic operates one flight each day (flight VS002 at 9:20 p.m.) using a Boeing 747-400 from New York Newark EWR to London Heathrow LHR.
