RE: P&W Canada 747SP Flying At FL101

Does anyone know why they use the 747 instead of something more efficient? A couple of months ago we had to level at 5000ft so that they could fly over at 6000 ft, quite the site!

You can run diesel engines on Jet A so that wouldn't make a difference, bottom line is that costs savings arent enough to make it efficient or I'm sure low cost airlines would have done it years ago. Also as stated engines need to be warmed up.
