Air India is not following the lead of other airlines regarding the future of the Boeing 747-400.

Although parked for the most of the time, Air India has four Boeing 747-400s (VT-ESO, VT-ESP, VT-EVA and VT-ESB) still remaining in its fleet.

According to BusinessToday.In and the Minister of Civil Aviation of India, Air India has no plans for the final phase out of its remaining Boeing 747-400s.

The average age is 26 years. Three of the four are currently undergoing maintenance according to the Minister.
