Where the fuck are you where you dont see T-tails & jumbos? Every commercial airport in america has at least a few CRJs lying around and every international airport is gonna have a few Atlass or Kalitoris 747s lying around
>>
>>1694273
As a passenger T-tails are easy enough to catch a ride on, but good luck getting on a jumbo unless you’re crossing an ocean. I don’t even know who still has 747s in passenger service, presumably some Asian/middle eastern carriers.
>>
>>1694411
No Middle Eastern carriers operate passenger 747s. Only Lufthansa, Air China, and Korean Air operate 748s. There are only a handful of 744s left too, all of which are rapidly.being retired.

>>
>>1699085
Feel free to read a book you fucking moron. Even airlines that have chosen to operate second hand quads (like Hi Fly) that are cheaper to acquire or lease end up ditching them because they cost far more to operate. If there was an actual demand and business case for quads, Boeing and Airbus wouldn't have ended 747, A340, and A380 production.
