    Hum. Brian does not like my photo comments. Too long, too emotional. But he is British. And I am, not so cold.

    Back on topic. LUNN, you've forgotten one 747SP, which still is in the air. I'll stay with my approach,
    a list of 747s which still are in the air.

    SOFIA is one of them. Btw, 747s are female, aren't they. Sofia, Pia, ...

    And in case of this bird, we should say, she could be in the air. But somehow, she's not cleared for t/o today.
    W5-B744 at OIIE (Tehran Intl airport)

    I don't know that much about friendship between Iran and the USA.

    LUNN, do you know more about that? Why exactly does the W5-B744 not fly?

    And finally, let me introduce you the reason why I still use this airline, why I still use this avatar, and why I will forever use this nickname.

    LH-B748i "D-ABYP", which is the future of my nickname.

    747 forever.

    And our very new Alliance colleagues define
    the Palace in the Sky:

    I have just reviewed my own post #24. And as I said, there once have been an incredible bunch of intercontinental B744 in Germany...

    Look at this beautiful bird:

    The VH-OEJ forever has a place in my heart, not only because it is a B744ER:

    Hum. I should be able to say one or two words in this thread.

    Did you ever come across the phenomenon that you once have written sth into the internet, but you don't quite remember all those words?!

    MEN, I BECOME OLD!

    Let's have a look at post #24 here in this thread. Since August 2014 there are news.

    Air France likes to disestablish the 747 in the year 2016.
    Which I regret!

    So, let us enjoy the B744 ,

    as long as it is possible!


    PS: I wanna contradict to the topic with the following question.

    Who still flies the Palace in the Sky, passenger version, in 2015? - My list, incomplete in January 2015, in alphabetical order:
    Air France.
    Air India.
    Air New Zealand - not in 2015.
    British Air.
    Cathay Pacific.
    KLM.
    Lufthansa.
    Qantas

    and our partner for the US Westcoast...
    United Airlines.

    It really doesn't have anything to do with the fences, the 744's were needed and originally they were going to start phasing them out a couple years ago. The fences are gone on Jan 1, 2015.

    Both Lion Air Indonesia 744s are out of service and stored.

    The topic is on who is phasing out 747s from their fleet, not who is removing them from a route.

    Flynas have again three 744s in their fleet leased for Hajj I guess.

    So the answer is, again by all technicalities: no.

    That doesn't mean that every nation is going allow twins to fly 5hr+ diversion routes though, just because they're capable/certified.
    I was just thinking about niche routes (such as the ones that were done from Southern South America to Australia and New Zealand) that required the A340 or 747 to operate. I can't think of other routes that would require the same clearance though...
