ANA Hopes Free Stuff Will Help You Forget Their Boeing 747s

Well, it's been a good run. Today marks the end of Boeing 747 service on Japan's All Nippon Airways (ANA). The double-decker Queen of the Skies first took to the skies for ANA in 1976, flying Tokyo-Sapporo and Tokyo-Fukuoka.

ANA flew 47 of the jumbos, and its 38-year career ended with a domestic flight from Naha to Tokyo-Haneda. That final aircraft will now make its funeral flight to the recyclers.

While ANA recognizes the plane's contributions, they are quick to draw passenger attention to more positive news, like free stuff! From March 30 - April 5, passengers on ANA flying from Tokyo to Dusseldorf, Germany will receive limited-edition packets of ANA Pocky treats, and travelers flying from Tokyo to London/Paris/Munich/Vancouver/Jakarta/Hanoi/Manila/Dusseldorf will be handed a special edition sticker commemorating the expansion of ANA's international routes.

If you're not flying anytime soon, ANA even has something for you. Purchase ANA 747 items at their special site, or simply download a free wallpaper homage to the final ANA 747:
