    Nigerian carrier Med View have leased a 744 in full livery, they have leased same in the past for hajj but doubt it got the livery, so this may be long term in the fleet.

    Wasn't Transaero the only Russian airline who operated a memorable B744 fleet? I can accept the topic with (cargo) in brackets.
    20 Russian B744s (passenger version) were owned by Transaero until last October...

    A few go to Rossiya, and the rest?

    PS: Btw, one jp member once had a question about "starboard winglet for a B744". If you need one, this seems to be your chance...
    after you've accepted to buy a whole bird, first.
    Passenger seats sometimes are sold, it was on TV. But winglets? This is why I love this platform.
    LH also has a intercontinental history, the Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - NYC route, open since June 1st, 1955.
    A/C type: Lockheed Super Constellation.
    The airline code since a few weeks is no longer LH, but the operator stays the same on the DUS - NYC route ...

    4L ... That didn't ring a bell in my head.

    There are airlines which we don't know from our home airports, or, what would you say, Erwin?
    I just had to use a German list with national a/c codes... Georgia?
    [Here, a saluting smiley is missing.]

    I could swear that a German B744 has never touched an UGTB rwy... During this season, you could rather find one at Suvarnabhumi.
    So, where on this planet did you spot this rare bird? (Not so) Far in the East?
    My respect, Erwin.
