Pikachu remains in service for a little while longer as ANA continues the phase out of Japan's last 744D's.

Sad days seeing the Jumbos made extinct by a fleet of boring ugly twin jets like the 787..

How come this B744 doesn't have winglets?

The 747-400D (Domestic) lacks the winglets the other versions have.

By design, the Domestic versions did not have the winglets because it actually made them less efficient for the operators' primary purpose of those particular aircraft - short distance hops with high passenger volume.
