United says aloha to the iconic Boeing 747

United says aloha to the iconic Boeing 747”

United Airlines will say goodbye to the Boeing 747 today in a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu Tuesday. The final trip to Honolulu will serve as the ultimate throwback for passengers. This plane will likely be parked in an airline graveyard near the Mojave Desert.

Once United's farewell 747 flight touches down in Honolulu today, Delta will be the only US carrier flying passengers in the jet.

It's time for the final journey for the Boeing 747, the most popular passenger airline plane ever created.

First, though, is United's 747 finale on Tuesday.

United flew it's first 747 jumbo jet from San Francisco to Hawaii in June of 1970, almost 50 years ago. In-flight entertainment options also will hail from the 1970s.

United Airlines began flying the Boeing 747 in 1970.

The retro feel "will help send the Queen of the Skies off in true style", United said in a statement.

Tuesday's San Francisco-Honolulu "farewell flight" supplants United's October 29 Seoul-to-San Francisco as the final 747 flight for the airline.

The 747 has generally been used for global flights.
