VIDEO / El Al has retired its last Boeing 747-400, flight LY1747
Today, November 3rd, El Al has operated its last commercial service with a Boeing 747-400, after 48 years of operating the iconic jumbo jet. The Queen of the Skies will surely be missed.
Scheduled as a charter, flight LY1747 landed in Tel Aviv coming from Rome FCO, operated with 4X-ELC. Before arriving in TLV, the pilots have drawn a Boeing 747 in the sky, west of Cyprus, much to the delight of avgeeks from around the world following the final flight on Flightradar24.

The 747s will now be replaced by more modern and fuel-efficient Boeing 787 Dreamliners (787-9 and 787-8, the first of which will arrive at the end of this month) and Boeing 777-200ERs.
