Has anyone flown on an aircraft that is now retired? If you’ve flown on more than one, which one was your favorite?

I’ve flown on the Cathay Pacific 747-400 a couple times. It was nice and it was my first time on a 747. At least I got a chance to fly on it before it fades away.

I went on a United 744 to Beijing a few years ago. Too bad United had to retire their 747s.

SAS does still operate the 737-600, just so you know

Yeah, I know. On their way to be retired. And some of them are already retired.

Yeah, their being retired, not retired yet😉, last time I flew one of those my brother was like “oh, that is a mini SAS aircraft” hahaha
