Any Domestic 747 Flights Left?

Sun Feb 08, 2004 1:41 pm

Are there any US Domestic flights left that still see service by the 747s? I know only UA and NW even still have 747s, but possibly service from an international airline?

Service from an international airline within the US? With the exception of QF's LAX-JFK flight (which does not allow domestic traffic), I don't believe any international carriers have the jurisdiction for domestic operations.

Now, UA still has 744's once in a while ORD-LAX/SFO.

Right now, UA is operating an ORD/IAD tag on to a IAD/LHR with a 744...this goes away in Apr. However, we will begin an ORD/LAX round trip....may see some more as the summer progresses as more 744's are freed from VCV.

I think you're also forgeting about IAD-ORD, UA 382/383 (I forget which is which way)

Ordpark-You beat me to the punch...although the ORD-IAD flight is 382 (383 is IAD-ORD, I just checked), and the IAD-LHR leg is 918...is it always the same aircraft that goes on both flights...just doesn't seem right that an aircraft would have a two-hour scheduled turnaround (even a 747)
