United’s final 747 flight 


She flew from San Francisco to Honolulu with more than a touch of nostalgia from United, crews and passengers. 


People snapped photos as she passed over the Golden Gate for the last time. There was something of a party atmosphere on board.


Like so many final 747 flights we’ve got used to in the last few years, it was a historic moment.  The end of an era that’s spanned 40 years and transformed air travel, not it has to be said, that US airlines really ever bought into the 747 as much as airlines like BA.


So there we go. Only Delta left now and that’s not long away.
