Re: Feeling nostalgic about 747s. Who’s have you flown?

Mon Jan 18, 2021 4:04 am

Just one: A KL 74M, PH-BFI, named "City of Jakarta", from AMS to ORD on 30/9/2018. It was a tight connection at AMS since my E190 flight from OSL was severely delayed due to maintenance issues. While a lot of people on that flight missed their connections, luck was on my side. The $1,200 ticket was well worth it to fly on the queen at least once in my life before all the passenger versions are gone forever.

Here's my video of the takeoff and landing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qpuc9bl6t6w

I'm a young flyer coming from underprivilege and under-aspirating to travel... I've flown on a couple of Lufthansa's 747-400s. Among the ones that remain, hope to fly their 748 and perhaps whatever 748s remain in the world several years down the road if airlines don't decide to just get rid of them.

All 400s. Would be nice to get a ride on the -8i one day, but that really relies on KE sending them to AKL again.

Thanks ZK-NBT. Korean would be only option from Aus. China not on my list, been there done it.

I particularly remember Lufthansa because when I was a little kid I thought the 747 was a Lufthansa plane, as in like the livery is the name of the aircraft. :rotfl:

For mere mortals, it would probably be a toss-up between the upper-deck on a BA -400, seat 1A on a LH -400 or 1K on a SAA -300. But I'm a lucky SOB, so for me the best 747 ride ever was on a Kalitta -200F.

My first jet flight was on a KLM 747-200SUD, PH-BUM named "Anthony HG Fokker" when I was only a few months old. I know this because my parents just so happened to snap a picture of the plane at the gate with the name on the nose prominently displayed. Very lucky to have that picture.

My latest one was BA 747-400 G-CIVT, from LHR to IAD. Hopefully it won't be my last- I'm sure I'll get a chance to fly Lufthansa's 747s before they retire them.

IB Iberia (3 x)
SK SAS (2 x)
AR Aerolíneas Argentinas (2 x)

One of those IB flights was notable because it was a domestic flight, AGP-MAD, in 1984. Not the kind of flight you'd be likely to see on a large widebody aircraft these days, except perhaps in Japan.

Business class upstairs in a 747-100/200 was like a private jet... economy was OK too, but not so... private.
I forgot to add AR 747-200 to my list... the memory of that flight was so awful I blanked it out!

QF 747-238B (SYD > CHC; we boarded by stairs in SYD on a boiling summer's day), 747-338 (SYD to SIN, upstairs in Y. There were only 6 of us; the crew turned the trolley into a self-service bar!), 747-438 and 747-438ER
BA 747-436 (by a large margin, my most frequent - and, to date, my last 747 flight, on retro-liveried Landor G-BNLY)
SQ 747-412
CX 747-467
VS 747-4?? (don't know the code, it could have been a leased aircraft. It was a Gatters-based aircraft and it was terribly clapped out)

I have also flown on 747-4H6 ex-Malaysian, but they were with Qantas when I flew them. Does that count?

I do hope to fly on LH's 747-8i but their business class looks miserable. I did see a €1500 First return MUC to ORD this coming December, when LH had a sale during the hight of the pandemic. I wish I'd booked it now, that fare has long gone and it's €5,000-something now. Grrrrr. Opportunity missed.
I only turn left when boarding aircraft. Well, mostly. All right, sometimes. OH OKAY - rarely.

I unfortunately haven't flown on one yet, was planning to last year before COVID hit, so that never happened. I have however been inside two 747's, N661US, a former Delta/Northwest 747-400 (prototype 744 along with being involved in Northwest flight 85) at the Delta Museum and N747NA, a former Pan Am/United 747SP that now operates for SOFIA/NASA.
