What is the Boeing 747-200?
The Boeing 747-200 is a double-storey airliner created by Boeing, introduced in early 1971. It was created to satisfy long-haul needs, as the only variant of the previous Boeing 747-100 that could fly long-haul was the extremely-small-capacity Boeing 747SP. It remains in use today, with 19 aircraft in service, distributed between airlines, air forces and private operators. Iran Air is the only passenger airline that operates it today.
