Can anyone tell me which US Airlines operate both 747-400 and 777-300.

Hrm.... United... I can't think of any more (Continental currently operates 777-300s and used to operate 744s, but not anymore)
For international, I know KLM, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, Korean Airlines, and JAL are all that I can think of.

since when do Continental and United operate 777-300s? The only 777-300s I've ever seen are with Emirates and Singapore Airlines.

And, Continental never operated the 747-400, they did operate 100's, and I think 200's as well, but the only US Airlines to operate the 747-400 is United and Northwest, and as it stands now, I believe (however I could be wrong on this) UAL and NWA are the only US Airline to operate 747's at all at this time.

Thanks for the info. I wonder if you could answer two more questions. What are the external differences between the 747-400 and the 747ís that TWA operated and are any of the former TWA 747ís still in service?

LAST EDITED ON Jan-27-02 AT 00:35AM (EDT)[p]Ok, there are many differences between the 747-100's, 200's, and then the 300's and 400's. Visually, the 747-400 differs by the winglets at the end of the wings. The 747-300 and 400 both have extened upper decks (take a look, it is very obvious). And in the end, the 400 has better engines, greater capacity, and much greater range then the 747's of old. Also, the 747-400 I believe only needs a flight crew of 2, while the older ones needed 3. There are many other techical differences, but these are the most obvious.
And about TWA, I think they took all thier 747's out of service a while ago, and even if they were still flying, I think American would retire them. AA hasnt flown a 747 in at least 10 years, probably even longer then that.

Thanks for the 747 info. As youíve probably guessed Iím new to airplanes. Railroads and locomotives are my area of expertise. I can tell you difference between an SD40, SD40-2 & DF40-2 but Iím clueless when it comes to aircraft.

Malaysian Airlines as well...

My bad... I was just thinking of 777s in general (-200). As for the continental 747-400, I was searching under the flightsim.com file library and found one or two so I assumed they were once in service by Continental. I guess I should have used airliners.net or something more reliable...
Bryan, welcome to the forum and FS. Just out of curiousity I have been mulling getting Mstrain sim and wondered what you think about it? (I for my part have no idea what those locomotives you were are...)

If you like trains, get Train Sim. it is TONS of fun. And www.train-sim.com (by the same folks that operate flightsim.com) is wonderful, with plenty of trains and activities to keep you occupied. One guy's even made a maglev train!
