United Airlines, one of the first carriers to operate the Boeing 747, has retired its last model from service after 47 years. Passengers reportedly paid up to $550 for a ‘seventies’ themed trip, with a retro menu and cabin crew dressed in vintage uniforms.
Also known as ‘the Queen of the Skies’, the Boeing 747 was the world first jumbo jet and forever changed the face of plane travel.
United Flight 747 flew from San Francisco to Honolulu on Tuesday - the same route the first aircraft took in 1970.
