One Year Ago The Last British Airways 747 Left Heathrow

Not just BAW’s Queen of the Skies, the BAW 744 was the Queen of the Skies

Last departure out of LHR :cry:

Yes, Lufthansa has done the opposite to keep the 747 and retire the A380, mainly because they have some newer -8s in the fleet. Not the case with BA though.

Its been a year already? :frowning:
