  • 744 in ATL today, scheduled?

    This afternoon at ATL's terminal E there was a Korean Air 744 registered HL7483. Last I heard there was no scheduled 747 service to ATL other than cargo, have things changed?

    Korean Air has 5 weekly-nonstop services from Seoul (Icheon) to Atlanta, Georgia on 747's. You might have never seen the 747's because Korean has been recently been upgrading many destinations due to the busy summer season.

        KE has been switching back and forth between the 744 and 772ER at ATL for the last three years.



        Depends on their cargo:
        when the SouthEast's cargo market gets slow, they use the quad's extra capacity to 'make up' for it.

        When cargo is heavy, they use the twinjet's superior capabilities to capture the yield.

          Examples of both at ATL:

          [photoid=436361]

          Adding to what ConcordeBoy said, they've been putting the 744 on the route more often over the past month or so. No complaints here....the 744 is a welcome site.

            Actually, it's now a daily service. They switched it back to the 744 when they made it daily service.

              The KE 744 does indeed appear at ATL on a more regular basis than in previous years. Seems this year the majority of flights have been operated with a 744, while last year the 772 was still the primary plane. Nonetheless good that ATL gets a regular passenger-747. There have been months when ATL would not get any pax-747 at all, and that as the world's busiest airport (pax- and soon flight-wise).
