What is the only US airline to operates 747's in passenger service?

 

I know Delta does, what with the ones they got from Northwest. But doesn't United still have 744's as well?

You are correct! I totally forgot about United's, and I just saw one in the new colors!

only thing that comes to mind is An-225 Cossack

 

Its a western manufacturer. Note: The A380 is longer than the 744. This aircraft is longer than both of those, and the one you mentioned IIRC.

Western manufacturer? The longest one i can think of is in fact the A340-600. Unless the DC-8-71 was longer.

 

Im guessing DC-8-71.

 

No. Not thats one either. Its a version of the most sucessful plane in its class.

Oh man! I thought it was that but then i thought the 753 was longer.

 

The 777 family holds 8 records.

 

Longest commercial aircraft

Largest twin engine aircraft

Widest twin engine aircraft

World largest jet engines

longest ranged commercial jet 772LR

Most reliable twin engine ever made

First aircraft ever to be ETOPS approved before first customer (United Airlines) delivery

Fastest selling wide-body in service (787 is the fastest selling jet in world history, and the first one still hasn't even entered service yet!)

 

If you have one, go ahead.
