747 ex-YYZ

In all my travels, I still have yet to fly on the Queen. Time to change that in 2020.

My initial search shows KLM to AMS, however that looks like it's being replaced by a 777 in the spring. LH to FRA is the only other one I can see at the moment.



Help me out FT'ers, which other airlines regularly fly a passenger 747 out of YYZ?

I regularly see the Lufthansa 747 fly over our house in Streetsville.

You can fly a 747 out of YHZ, but only if you are a lobster.

Heck, I can fly on a DC-10 if I dress up like a box!

Depending on schedule KL runs either one or two flights a day YYZ-AMS. Equipment varies by date but normally at least one of them is a 747-400.
The LH 744 regularly operates YYZ-FRA.
BA generally flies a 744 YYZ-LHR in the summer, though that may no longer be the case. They were operating an A350-1000 last fall.

Of those three, KL is probably your best bet. Just tried a few random dates on the KL website and they're still showing 747 flights through fall 2020.

KLM 747s are now officially retired and replaced by 787s on the AMS-YYZ route.

Looks like COVID-19 will finish off Queen of the Skies

LH has retired 747-400, so if you want to fly Queen of the Skies, it probably won't be out of YYZ

747-8i is new, so LH may use it again once traffic picks up, but you'll likely have to do it via a UA hub out of US

Long live the queen !!!
