      maybe some routes flown by the 744 will be taken over by the 343.

        I got to clear the last revenue flight out of the gate and off to taxi, as well as several of the 747 retirement ferries from CRK-SFO-MZJ/GWO. I told the pilots I would miss the 747 and they replied "We'll miss her too, we'll miss flying her".

        SFO-MNL was the final 747 long-haul route for the last month or two at least, and that went all 77W, as did LAX.

          I think he means some routes network wide will be taken over by A340 especially in Asia.
