As long as you are in a democratic country that guarantees freedom of expression, I'm pretty sure you are welcome to dislike anything and everything.

Aww I flew her to JFK in 1K on the 21st, kinda sad she's gone to the graveyard less than a week later.

Is LAX off the schedule then, or is that just 747-4?

My son flew to Delhi on the 747. The purser knew him from soccer and gave him a upper deck seat during the last part of the flight. It was his first and probably his last 747 flight. He does not get it how special it was but he liked the upper deck. He was quite surprised when I am apped that would be soon a thing of the past..

11/01/20

just got a email from KL that we rebooked from Mex to Ams in May from Aero Mexico 787 to KL 747 combi.

Booked a seat too, just in case. There was some 67k miles space, and they are easily refundable. Could even see the Platinum service line waiving the 50EUR fee if the real last flight gets postponed

Very tempting... did you book just JFK-AMS? Can't see anything on that flight JFK-Europe less than 130k now.

This may or may not be the last 747 combi but I assume they aren't dumping a 747 in PBM... (there's no PBM-AMS flights beyond the 5th yet)



JFK seems to switch to a 777 from 747 after the 3rd but looks like the end isn't quite nigh after all.
