This wiki is intended to contain a list of opportunities to fly internationally configured wide-body aircraft within the United States, aside from the usual JFK-LAX/SFO 767s and newer domestic DeltaOne routes. This is a collaborative wiki, not an OP-maintained thread; please contribute by editing the wiki directly as you become aware of regularly scheduled or repositioning flights. Schedules change far more frequently than community members have time to update this wiki; therefore please verify the equipment before purchasing a flight.

one way to search for these on ITA

Domestic Wide-Body Opportunities: The Definitive Thread

This topic comes up fairly often, so misterbean suggested starting a wiki where people can contribute upcoming opportunities to fly wide-bodies domestically, whether on a regularly scheduled basis or due to repositioning flights. I'm currently sitting in an airport with nothing else to do, so figured why not make it so.

AM 763 service ATL-SLC at least in mid November and redeye HNL-SLC in late September, or are we talking about INTL configuration, in which case the title should be clarified?

I would really like a ride on the upper deck of the 747. Someone posted about a MSP-ATL flight a couple of years ago on a Friday. I booked a same day RT award ticket that I ended up canceling because they swapped it out with a 330.

Great! Thanks, javabytes. Hopefully I can find some 747 chances for everyone.

Great Thread. Now are we just tracking Internationally configured aircraft operating domestic routes or ALL widebodies to include the 767-300 (non-ERs), which also comes up as fairly frequent question on here? I can look through and add some of the 767-300 non-ER routes if users are interested in that data as well.

Personally I don't see value in tracking the domestic 767s. I've never felt anything special about them, though technically they are wide-bodies.

Fair enough - recommend editing the thread title or OP (or perhaps the wiki) to reflect that this is for tracking internationally configured aircraft operating domestic routes then so as not to cause confusion.

Edited the wiki to reflect some of the 76W routes to HNL (LAX-HNL service and the JFK-HNL service added for a few weeks over the Christmas holiday period).
