    Qantas today operates 6 B747-400ER (Extended Range) and 4 QF-B744. So, this is not rubbish, QF said that they like to fly the Boeing 747 at least until the year 2020.
    But in my eyes, and for 2018, it's a lie again, see Air India (!).

    Evidence? Yes, and I love it.
    Qantas B744ER at Kingsford Smith, April 2018.
    LH and the Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - NYC route, open since June 1st, 1955. A/C type: Lockheed Super Constellation.
    LH is member in the 747 club since April 1970. Jubilees do count, believe me.

      I know LUNN since a very long time, he's here longer than me. And I wouldn't bother about his lists. But he shouldn't have started this topic. It's rather irrelevant, as Air India has never mentioned a year when they do no longer love to fly the AI-B744!

      And the list is incomplete. For such a long list, I would have expected at least a year for each and every airline, when e.g. a Qantas Boeing 747 still is in service. QF said, and I very much love that decision, that they'll fly their 747-400s (B744) until the golden 747 jubilee. Together with 1 rather unimportant European airline...

      Another entry from the list. Air New Zealand. This entry also lacks details.
      Air New Zealand, member of the 747 club between 1981 (type NZ 747-200) and 2014 (NZ 747-400).

      It's always sad to see club members go. But at least one airline from down under will stay with "us" until the golden jubilee..

        I didn't want to go into trivial info like dates and exact versions.

                    I assumed that this platform will explode if one of us has become 40. But nothing has happened so far...

                    But now I have one entry which definitely belongs to the list "Current 747 operators". And I indeed hope that the result stays "nothing has happened so far"! We all know the
                    Giro D'Italia. In the year 2018, the 2nd day of the Giro ended in which beautiful town?

                    You need help? Afaik, my avatar, the LH-B744 a couple of years ago had this town as a destination. Today, rather two daily A321 jets are flown, than 1 LH-B744. Now the answer is near. Our friends at LLBG Intl airport. They also operate the 747 until today? - Obviously: LY-B744.

                    PS: What I thought never would be possible... LLBG is open for jets who take off in Istanbul? But LY has not decided to go to Turkey, afaik. But that's almost a miracle in my eyes. The highest political circles always see problems, which in reality/in aviation do not exist?!

                    Probably, I see things through rose-colored glasses, but airports like LLBG who regularly welcome "the Pope airline" from Fiumicino can't really be a problem..
