Domestic Use Of 747

Mon Aug 14, 2006 10:34 am

What are domestic flights that use a 747. I know of one: UA 139 ORD-SFO, are there any others?

You would have loved the old days; JFK-LAX on Pan Am, TWA, United or Tower in the 80s and 90s. AA did it in the 70s and early 80s as well. Northwest from Detroit and Minneapolis to California. National up and down the eastern seaboard in the 70s. UA also in and out of Chicago and Denver. Braniff's famous daily Dallas to Honolulu, racking up the highest utilisation rate for the 747 at the time. Delta from Atlanta to NY, Chicago and LA in the 70s.

I just rode UA ORD-DEN Tuesday last week. Usually it's a 772 which then goes on to SFO, but it was changed about 48 hours ahead of time to a 744. I wondered if this 744 maybe needed to spend some time at UA MX so it was swapped into the 777's slot.

UA, at least as of a few years ago, has (had?) a ORD-LAX 744 run (either UA100 or UA125, I can't remember), I beleive the bird was N171UA. The flight was to position the aircraft for a LAX-SYD run.

It is among my only truly memorable flights -- although doing it added about 4 hours each way to the total trip (LAX-ORD-LAX on UA then ORD-DTW-PLN-DTW-ORD on NW) it was well worth it.

No hard feelings, then. I see you are new here. For starters, welcome to the family (albeit, dysfunctional Big grin). Another, you will see what I mean when a topic comes up, similar to the one that you just posted a reply to earlier. It can be frustrating.

United does schedule 747s and other international configured planes on domestic routes. Cities that routinely see them are some of UA's hubs. IAD, ORD, DEN, LAX, SFO and SEA all get three class planes on domestic routes from time to time. Any 744 to DEN is on a domestic route since UA doesn't operate any long haul flights from DEN.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I flew KHI-ISB on a B747-300 in January. The early morning flight is scheduled for a B742 or B743 most days. It was a nice experience - especially disembarking via steps in Islamabad. Here is a shot I managed to take when the security guards weren't looking:

So what, if you don't like it don't read it and don't respond.

To answer the question, SAA use a 744 JNB-CPT and back (2 hours each way). You can also fly on a 342 or 346 on this route. The frequency varies, for example today there are no 744s but some days there are 2 each way.

I've flown Air India 744s domestically within India, though it's been a while. They're usually flights that hop between BOM and DEL (or another origin, such as ADI) before continuing on a transcontinental route. AI takes domestic passengers on these routes. Used to be they were cheaper than the alternative monopoly, IC. I've no idea how they're doing now with the explosion of the Indian domestic market and cheaper flights at more convenient times from the host of private airlines. AI international flights typically depart in the middle of the night ...

I had no clue that there were any 747s flying within the US! Live and learn!

...but the ones that I know of : UA, QF, JL, PK, ANA (?)...not sure of the others off the top of my head but I do know alot of carriers based in Asia use 747's or atleast widebodies on their domestic routes. hope this helps any.

Sometimes a thread is discussed to death. I too have participated in the "747 domestic flights" threads. However, I think this is one scenario where a thread can be repeated, as flight schedules change constantly - so the answer to that question changes constantly.

That being said - I would love to ride UAL domestic 744 again someday. I did it from SFO-ORD back in 2000 on a 744. Even got bumped to biz class! (which was still on the lower deck  Sad )

Air Plus Comet flies twice a week Boeing 747-200's from MAD to BCN and return.

Air France, operates 744 equipment from ORY to AJA. I suppose that due to summer season.

Aerolineas Argentinas operates 744 equipment from EZE to USH many times a week.

If you're just trying to build an archive, go and do some work on Wikipedia. I'm here to talk about our favourite subjects, which certainly includes domestic 747s, and I look forward to next month to talk about it again.

I recall a few years back flying an SAA 744 from JHB to Durban (not sure of the abbreviation). A one hour flight that was in those days usually flown with a 732. If I recall, on this occasion due to a storm on the highveld there had been one or two flights cancelled to Durban so they subsitiuted the 732 with a 744.

It was a real treat as at the time I hadn't flown a Jumbo for around 20 odd years (since I was 12). Oh how times have changed!

Yes they do, these flight between SYD-MEL and SYD-BNE are International flights with the aircraft continuing to AKL-LAX from MEL and to LAX from BNE, they aren't daily though.

The PER flights are stand alone domestic fligths. Seasonally QF have in the past added an additional SYD-JNB via PER flight, not sure if they will do again this year or not. All QF's JNB flights used to go via PER.

A shame NZ no longer fly 744's CHC-AKL, these were International flights aswell though but you could fly the CHC-AKL leg. Sadly I never had the chance to though. Those flights are now operated by 772's.

Yeah, I agree with you Boston92 but I can never have any luck with the search engine with this website.

I believe you can fly domestic 747s from Bangkok to Phuket and JNB to Capetown. As for the US, I think the ORD LAX route is the only one I know of.

As stated before, in the old days you could fly 747s from JFK to SFO to LAX all the time. I guess those times are long gone. Too bad.

I did Madrid to Tenerife Norte on IB in the spring, on a 744. Whole main deck was economy seating, I think it is an Air Atlanta aircraft. I sat right at the front in the first row in the nose. Great view from there as you can almost see forward thanks to the curvature of the fuselage, and scenic landing at TFN.

I just flew on UA 129 ORD-LAX on June 22 and
UA 128 LAX-ORD on June 26
both 747-400 and neither of these flights were associated with international flights.

Although I love the 747, I would much prefer a 777 with its private TVs. UA really needs to redo the interiors of the 747 fleet ASAP.

So, I've been an a.netter anonymous user for a while and only recently applied for a username. I'm trying to read as much as possible and learn the ways of the board before I post too many things.

What an American I am. When I read the title of the thread, I thought subconsciously "Oh, Domestic means US Domestic."  Embarrassment I now know to think a little bit more before I make ethno-centric assumpitons concerning sites on the WORLD WIDE web and the US.

Nevertheless: Growing up I used to pray for a 747 route anytime I flew domestically (I'm still pretty young... so the days of Braniff and PanAm and even the best of the TWA years were before my time!) I would definitely go out of my way and even spend a few extra dollars to catch one of these big guys in my next domestic flight.

So, I've been an a.netter anonymous user for a while and only recently applied for a username. I'm trying to read as much as possible and learn the ways of the board before I post too many things.

Welcome to A.net  wink 

I think UA 747's are a pity really. I've flown on one LHR-SFO and although this was a few years ago, the interior was terrible and to think that they haven't done anything to them is a shame. On the other hand, I flew a UA 777 a few weeks ago and it was awesome.
If you are going through hell, keep going.

Watch this space. All UA's International fleet in F & J are being upgraded with new seats etc. As for Y on those 747, the best you will see is overhead monitors dotted around the cabin, There will be no PTV's

Sometimes a thread is discussed to death. I too have participated in the "747 domestic flights" threads. However, I think this is one scenario where a thread can be repeated, as flight schedules change constantly - so the answer to that question changes constantly.

That being said - I would love to ride UAL domestic 744 again someday. I did it from SFO-ORD back in 2000 on a 744. Even got bumped to biz class! (which was still on the lower deck )

Well said. To those who get frustrated at a thread that has been discussed before, GO WALK YOUR DOG.

Back in 95, we took the 1:00 flight from SFO to ORD. We were finally wheels up at around 5:00. Our 747-400 had to come in from Japan, and it was a tad late that day.
I've got things to see and people to do.

One must remember that, in addition to new topics on the same subject, there are often new members of the same species. This can afford an opportunity to garner new insight from those newer members who will probably never see any of the prior topics. Unless you just already know everything, in which case it doesn't make sense that you're here anyway.
