AKL currently gets SQ744F 5x weekly and an Atlas 744 weekly on behalf of QF.

NW 17/18 we still had KE 748I which didn’t return in 18/19, I’m guessing we will see it again in future sometime at least I hope so.

Other than that the odd sub from QF.

BNE. Not strictly my home airport but it is my most frequently used.

Qantas still has 747s.

Historically JAL is the only other carrier I know for sure has operated 747s there since I’ve been using it.

At my home airport of BOM, we get 2 daily 747's

TG - BKK-BOM - 747-400 (sometimes uses a 777)
LH - FRA-BOM - 747-400/747-8 (LH were supposed to switch to the A380, but due to the lack of available A380 compatible gates, we should continue to see the 747)
AI - BOM-HYD-JED rotation uses a 747 but i'm not sure if it's a daily service.

BA used to send their 747 here but it has been switched over to a 777 for a while now.

My home airport NUE never had any scheduled B747-service, but every now and then either some cargo jumbos or chartered American troop transporters will land here. Sometimes you also see diverted jumbos from FRA here.
Airports 2019: ADB, ALG, AMD, ATL, BOS, CTS, DEL, DTW, DUS, EWR, FRA, HND, IST, JFK, MUC, NUE, PHL, SIN, STN, YYZ
Planned 2019: Nothing new so far, but another flight to HND and maybe some domestics in Japan will follow

Here at SEA we get BA on the passenger side and LH will probably bring the 744 back for the summer season.
Freighters: SQ, KE, CV, CI

SFO. Fewer, but yes. Even the CI 748. And at OAK MD-11s still climb out over my house.

Even after the passenger 747s are gone at JFK, the 747 freighters will continue to fly there.

JFK is a major cargo hub. Quite a few foreign airlines, KE for example, have built dedicated cargo terminals at JFK.

LUX: 747-8F launch customer.

So they're here to stay basically.

Excellent to compare 747-400F and 8F noise levels, which are pretty large and noticeable.

Pretty busy cargo airport for those who don't know..

Regards.

At LAS - Virgin 747s are a common sight, BA were as well but I don't see those anymore. Maybe they're out of my schedule or got changed to 777-200ER

DUB has scheduled pax 747 ops until 1995 when EI retired them in place of the A330, however SQ kept running a twice weekly 74F via CPH until the early 2000's. I also think AF used them on the way from ORD to CDG, but that route's a 77F now every Sunday morning.

However, its still common to see them stop by and BA are painting the 747 fleet (including the retros) in DUB so they've been regular visitors over the past few months. There is one in a hanger being painted as we speak which will be the second BA retro 747!

Oh for sure, but interestingly KE has been running the B77F into JFK in my recent memory.

Everyone knows JFK gets the most pax 744's in the US.

My home airport here in the states is right behind it at #2 on that list and is occasionally #1 passing JFK. Guess.

British Airways is the only one serving us with a 747 passenger these days. Wish LH would send the 748i. 747 is by far my favorite aircraft, remember when AF, IB, BA, Alitalia and LH all brought their 747 to MIA at a certain point. AR and Varig as well.

Given MIA's history with other rare aircraft, I think MIA will see the 747 (cargo and passenger) much longer than the typical airport. I know BA will have the 744 around longer than anyone else IIRC. And on the cargo side, I don't see the 747 ending any time soon.

It's MCO. I think LAX gets only 1 KL and 1 BA pax 744 while ORD only gets 2 LH 748 and and 1 BA pax 744. At MCO we get a LH 744 and between 3 and 6 VS 744's.

No more regular 747s in BNE anymore. The last pax 747 route was QF to LAX which went all 789 in early December 2018. No regular freighters either, just the occasional one passing through on an ad-hoc basis.

Passenger service on 747 in MVD is long gone...As far as I can remember, last 747-400 operator was KLM somewhere in the 90´s. We ocassionally see freighter jumbos but not scheduled...

I don't think that MCI ever had scheduled 747 service to begin with (at least not in my lifetime), but there are occasionally 747s that come to the maintenance and overhaul facility on the east side of the airport. Usually to be cannibalized for spare parts and scrapped, sadly.

TWA used to fly 747s, among others, on their revenue STL-MCI route.
