With new aircraft on show from both Airbus and Boeing one can't forget the iconic 747. Was wanting to find out who are the remaining airlines in the world that still fly the 747 all passenger aircraft. Airlines I can think of are - Air China, Air India, Asiana, British Airways, China Airlines, EVA Air, Korean Air, Lufthansa, Qantas and Thai.

Virgin Atlantic comes to mind... I believe they still have some alongside El Al.

It's worth noting as well that since Lufthansa, Air China and Korean Air among others also fly the -8i variant, some of them should hopefully still be flying for a few years to come.

It is, in any event, a dwindling few. I still surprises me somewhat that some carriers tapped into the 748. Whilst I would not want to be seen as disparaging the “Queen of the Sky”, it kind of seems to me to be yesterday’s technology.

"Yesterday" technology due to quad engines instead of twin?

Suprising the A380 has uncertain futures considering how long the 747s been around. Lufthansa just can't get enough of the new 748s!
