Has British Airways announced any new routes for the 747?

Shortly after the takeover of BCal, BA used to run a 747 through MAN to a few destinations, including MCO and there was a starter at MAN to LHR and onto HKG.

I believe this one is still going:

RUH / O

And I also think this one was cut altogether instead of aircraft cut:

TPE / T

Is the CC necessary in the key? I didn't think BA ever had any 747 - 400 cargo versions? I could be wrong!

Did the B747-400 definitely serve ADL? I *thought* that was terminated before the -400 series appeared at BA.

Not necessarily a measure of success but, it would be interesting to compare the number of destinations served by the 747-400 in comparison with the 747-200 and 777-200, for example.

I think one of the most interesting aspects is the number of routes which could once sustain 747 service have been cut entirely. The whole of Australia & NZ save SYD, MNL, CCS etc. I know there’s varying reasons such as political unrest, codeshares & joint business partnerships etc but disappointing to see so many dots off the own metal route map
