747 Galley?

Wed Jun 29, 2011 1:19 am

This photo appeared on Airliners.net today - it shows what I think would be a Doors 2 galley on a 747

My question is - IS this a particularly spacious galley? It sure looks it!

It's more impressive than most 747 F galleys I have seen.

Northwest 747-200s had a similiar galley with the center table in the middle of Y class. That was the last time I noticed a galley like that in person, I do not remember this galley on the several 744 that I flew on JAL around F class, I guess I was not paying attention. But all the times I flew JL was 2000 and beyond, so things my have changed since 1996

Wow, that's a bone fide kitchen.

KLM 747-200/300/400's have (or had) an ultra long galley installed at the RH side of the aircraft, all the way between doors 1R and 2R .

TG have or had the same layout.

Qantas had a side galley on the 747SP, as did Pan Am (and therefore United)

Looks like a restaurant kitchen  Wow! Do they still have this configuration?

And so many water boilers... they must drink lots of tea.

I think that those planes were reconfiged by Flight Structures about 10 years ago.

JL retired their last 744s in early March to cut costs as part of their bankruptcy restructuring. It's hard to think of JL without any 747s as they were by far the largest 747 customer. They operated a total of 112 747s of almost all models except the SP, and as recently as 2007 still had about 70 in service.

You can still see JL's many 744 configurations (which varied by route) in the retired aircraft section of their website.

And the high-density 744D that was used on domestic routes.

Now we are getting to something serious! Those lower deck galley photos a few posts above are also hideous, but they are just food storage areas, not much in the way of a kitchen.

Can someone post a photo of the forward galley in one of NZs new 77Ws? They are beautiful. Not functional, just beautiful.
