KE, LH and BA all operate regularly scheduled pax 747 operations here to N. America along with others. (B744s and B748s)

We are talking about civilian operators. VC-25A are only based in Boeing 747 fuselage, and the "flying White House" are military aircraft.
The aviation world will be bored if only twins fly with commercial passengers. I love 747s

Ah, ok. Sorry, I mis-read that. In that case, I think you are correct. I don't know of any other pax 747 operators based in N. America. Actually, are there any in Central or South America? I can't think of any!

Technically not a Boeing 747. It's a VC-25 and it is not a passenger airliner, but rather an airforce aircraft.

Pax? I always thought Atlas was only cargo but to my surprise they do some charter flights.
