The license plate suggests California, which with JL and QF would make it the south terminal at SFO, but...

The caption says SFO, and given the license plate and the airlines, I'd say that's the likely choice.
Other than LAX and HNL, neither of which matches, did JL and QF serve any other US airports at the time?

Quoting prosa (Reply 1):

Yes, if the 1970 date is correct, both JL and QF were serving JFK then. JFK was part of their around-the-world service until the 747 replaced JL's DC-8s and QF's 707s on their North American services when they dropped the transatlantic tag-on sectors (and QF dropped JFK completely for quite a few years).

In their March 1970 timetable JL operated daily with DC-8-62 HND-SFO-JFK (JL2 eastbound, JL1 westbound). Twice a week it continued JFK-LHR and once a week JFK-ORY with 5th freedom rights, connecting with their Europe-Japan multi-stop services. Until the DC-8-62 went into service in the late 1960s, there was another stop at HNL.

In the July 1971 timetable QF was still operating the SFO-JFK-LHR tag-on sectors 3 days a week with 707s. Their first 747 was delivered in July 1971.
