    US Domestic 777 and 747 Service

    What airlines are using the 777 or 747 on domestic flights these days? What routes?

    I've been on niether aircraft, and would love to do this intra-US.

    AA runs the 777 on the following MIA-LAX and ORD-DFW. UAL has the 777 on ORD-HNL, not sure if they still have 747 domestic routes anymore. Its not Domestic but you also can do a 773 from JFK to YVR on Cathay, the service is fantastic. Free booze and hot meals in coach.

    Phil, I am also trying to get a 777 or 747 domestic...it's proven a pain to pull off.

    I know UA does 777's ORD-SFO, ORD-LAX, IAD-DEN; and DL does ATL-LAX and I think ATL-DTW on a T7. I've been trying to get on a T7 somehow on my east coast trip in the spring, but I haven't found one yet. I think the domestic heavies are only through the spring or winter.

    From JFK we have Delta flying the 777 to ATL every Sunday and back on Monday. For a sample Sunday and Monday sojourn in January, the fare is $259 r/t. Not bad.

    Great info, guys, thanks!

    Aren't some of them "revenue ferries" where the airline need to reposition the plane and just sells tickets on it anyway for a few extra bucks?

    Not anymore unfortunately. ATL-HNL is an A330-300. Delta flies the 777-200ER and 777-200LR on ATL-LAX, ATL-JFK, and ATL-DTW. I personally think Phil should hop on the next Delta 777 to ATL so we can put him through the rigors of a Delta simulator tour. BYOB = bring your own barf bag.

    AA also will be operating the 777 DFW-MIA and (not domestic but also) JFK-SDQ starting Dec 17. AA 777s are all 3 class but are sold as 2 class when flown domestic except for MIA-LAX. Therefore, you may get a seat in the Business Class cabin on a coach ticket. If you have elite status, you can book a business class seat when you purchase your ticket. If you don't, you can request a seat on the day of departure. A few years ago, AA operated the 777 on the MIA-JFK route so I flew down on a 762 and upgraded to First on the 777 on the way back. It was quite a treat to have a flat bed on such a short flight.

    Thanks but according to aa.com, AA will be operating the 777 daily JFK-SDQ from Dec 17 - Jan 4, not just Saturdays.

    Sorry about that, I thought I had read somewhere that American would be having a 777 flight year round on Saturdays but it now looks like it will just be a second daily flight for the holiday rush, in addition to the year round 767-300.

    No prob. I believe in the past, there was a BOS-SDQ Saturday only flight that was a 777 iirc.

    I remember UA was flying 744s between ORD and DEN for awhile...not anymore?
