EVA Air (Taipei) has confirmed it will operate its last Boeing 747-400 revenue passenger flight this month (the carrier will continue to operate all-cargo freighter flights with the type).

Subject to any last minute changes, the last flight is scheduled to be flight BR 892 on August 21, 2017 between Hong Kong (HKG) and Taipei (Taoyuan) (TPE). The Jumbo flight is scheduled to arrive at 1130 (11:30 am) local time.

The carrier’s first two all-passenger Boeing 747-400s were delivered in November 1992.

EVA Air utilized the new aircraft to launch its Taipei-Los Angeles route and introduce its four classes of cabin service, including the debut of its Evergreen Deluxe Class in Economy and Super Business.

The last Boeing 747-400 is the pictured B-16411 which will operate the last flight.
