I'd say you are in Frankfurt, Germany. That one looks like its still climbing out, though I can't tell. CLX arrives in my locale in the darkness mostly. Mostly they fly eastwards to Asia, up to VHHH then PANC, to N. America and back to Europe. If this was in the morning, that plane would be about 24 hours into the next day by the time it gets to me. Now here is the question., where the hell am I?

That is quite close to my guess, You could have been in N. America. It looks likely that its a flight to/from US west Coast or PANC to Liege, Belgium. Anything East Coast USA would fly a bit of southerly route, but that depends on the jetstream for that day.

Lufthansa still flies Passenger Jumbos. Thats in EUROPE, sounds very wester to me. Also Korea isn't a bad holiday trip if you don't mind the food and the language. They have jumbos too.

I don't think that is true. You don't buy 19 jumbos solely to serve the transatlantic market. Also there are those that do transpac too.

U have the WHOLE of the porn section to post that and u post it here? on a thread for Jumbo jets?

I did see an old film where they used a section of cabin for the sequences, there were also outdoor shots with jumbos in them. Quite sophisticated for an adult film, had a plot line, characters, and an ending where the pilot gets dumped.

Kinda uncanny how that compares when you look at today's 2 engine designs.

No shit but that does mean traveling internationally, and only to Germany or Korea, both of which are very expensive to fly to unless you’re in Europe or SE Asia. You’d most likely be going out of your way explicitly to fly on a 747, and most people don’t have that in their budget.
>>
>>1816397
So, so what?

If people like it they'll pay upfront. Most people never flew on jumbos anyways, they were big planes for long routes, that most people didn't need to fly on. So whats the Big deal if you can only fly them long haul, wasn't that what it was meant to do in the first place?

There is nothing to stop you from flying around the World Firstclass on 747's if that is what you want and besides that is not what you claimed.

>>Name operators that aren't charter, cargo or operating exclusively outside of the western world.

As if the Western World is the bastion of high living standards right now. Btw Surveys show that Korea has one of the highest living standards in the World, and their keeping their jumbos for 10 years and dumping their whalejets in 5.
>>
>>1816566
My point is jumbos and widebodies in general were used all over the place for domestic hub-hub routes 20 years ago, you didn’t have to plan a vacation around catching a seat on a handful of international routes.

Your definition of the Western World is very small indeed if you exclude Europe and Australasia. Your not wrong only you have left of a significant portion of it, which might be misleading.

Also hub to hub domestic routes imply that the country is large enough to have domestic widebodies. There are many countries that practiced this, they weren't using jumbos but they were big planes and such routes were short sectors and some were seasonal only.

I've flown on such sectors, in Egypt there was a CAI-LXR service using an A300, because the plane was full and there were many tourists.

These days the number of competitors and high frequency of service makes up for the seating demand. making big planes obsolete, at least that is what I'm lead to believe.

A lot of people did too, but it wasn't round long enough to be iconic. The battleship grey was somewhat buoyed by the 777, because they were the launch customer, and UA plastered it allover the new fleet. The jumbo didn't look to bad in that, especially with the corrogard taken off the wings.

This one is the one I liked, it was on all their jumbos too.
