United Airlines has scheduled the last flight with Boeing 747-400
United Airlines has scheduled the last flight with Boeing 747-400. It will be on the San Francisco - Honolulu route.
It is no longer news that more and more airlines are giving up Boeing 747-400 aircraft. In most cases, the financial reason is most often invoked.
Long-haul aircraft with 2 engines are gaining more ground in front of those with 4 engines. And it's natural! Fuel consumption is lower at 2 engines. And the economic ratio per seat is better.
The last Boeing 747-400 flight
United Airlines, one of the world's largest air carriers, has announced the date of its last flight with Boeing 747-400. It will be on 7 November 2017, on the San Francisco - Honolulu route.
It is a reprint of Continental Airlines' first jumbo jet flight. In 1970, it was operated from the San Francisco base to Honolulu-Daniel K. Inouye Airport. In order to relive the atmosphere of 47 for years, the attendants on board will wear the uniforms specific to that period.
United has decided not to sell the seats on the upper deck, giving guests a chance to test this iconic space.
Previously, the last international flight with 747-400 will be operated on 29 October, on the Seoul - San Francisco route!
Boeing 747-400 aircraft will be replaced with the new Boeing 777-300ER. They can carry up to 366 passengers in a configuration with 3 classes.
Goodbye, Queen of the Sky!
