How Many CI B747-400s In Service Still?

Tue May 17, 2016 6:25 am

How many of them are still in service? Where do they fly them to?

According to the CI schedule CI no longer flies the B 747-400 into HKG

They still have a few active. These are the youngest 747-400 passenger machines out there, last deliveries in 2005. They were supposed to be retired by now due to previously high oil prices but the drop in oil prices have given them a reprieve. I think they still do Auckland (which might even be via BNE, now that I think about it, TPE-BNE-AKL) and also maybe TPE-PEK.

Only a few left? Back in November 2015 they had close to 10 B747-400s. How many did they retire?

Current schedules show a 744 on one almost daily (except Sunday) TPE-NRT-TPE (CI100/101) and on a daily TPE-KIX-TPE (CI156/157). Not sure where else.
