      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.

          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.

          That's what airlines are good for, amongst others,
          The Gold Member in the 747 club, 50 years since the first LH 747.
          And constantly advanced, 744 and 748 /w upper and lower EICAS.

            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:

            Wunala has disappeared. But this is what jp is good for!

                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.

                          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?

                            There are many 747SP still flying but I have only listed airline service ones as you had asked for.

                            SOFIA is a NASA project that uses 747SP.

                            Mahan 744s are grounded and being sold because they were acquired illegally, why they cant fly domestic is not known, but anyways they are going with one or two already sold to Smile Air in Ghana.

                              All the Mahan fleet is aquired illegaly.

                              The 744's are in need of a D-check. They where planned to get that at AMS a while ago but that was cancelled. There where fears they would be impounded.

                              Wouldn't surprise me that Smile Air is just another front to get them in the air again on Mahan routes.

                                And PIA is pronounced as P-I-A an acronym, not Pia a name.
