(a) "The 747 entered service on January 22, 1970, on Pan Am's New York–London route * * * As of July 2018, 462 Boeing 747s are in airline service, with British Airways being the largest operator with 36 747-400s.  The last US passenger Boeing 747 was retired from Delta Air Lines in December 2017 * * * The aircraft entered the cultural lexicon as the original Jumbo Jet, a term coined by the aviation media to describe its size, and was also nicknamed Queen of the Skies."  en.wikipedia.org for "Boeing 747."

("the one-time 'Queen of the Skies' has been slowly becoming obsolete. The double-decker, four-engine behemoth guzzles a lot of fuel, cutting into airline profitability. While later versions like the 747-8 have significantly improved efficiency over the earlier variations of the plane, it's tough to beat two-engine workhorses like the Boeing 777-300ER. Beyond that, twin-engine planes have become more capable than ever before to safely handle long-distance flights. * * * The first wide-body plane with two aisles in the cabin, the 747's range and capacity were great for ferrying passengers between large hubs * * * [but] smaller wide-body planes like the [twin-engine, single-aisle] Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the new [twin-engine, twin-aisle] Airbus A350 are better for those point-to-point routes. Even the latest variations of the [twin-engine, single-aisle] narrow-body 737 are flying across oceans.")
(i) en.wikipedia.org for "wide-body aircraft" says, "The typical [twin-aisle] fuselage diameter is 5 to 6 m (16 to 20 ft). The same for "narrow-body aircraft" says it has "a [single-aisle] cabin below 4 metres (13 ft) of width."
(ii) This report was written to commemorate Delta's sending its last Boeing 747 to Arizona 'boneyard,' after United had retired its 747 in November 2017.

Note:
(a) The deceased is Chenwei Guo 郭宸玮. He came to US in 2012 from Beijing. He had been a mormon since age 16 and served as a missionary in Provo, Utah (but I can not find out when). He was killed at 8:32 pm local time, on Oct 30, 2017. Kathleen Boutain reported to University of Utah campus about Colorado killing 33 minutes before campus security heard gunshots that killed Guo. Six more minutes later, the female passenger in Guo's car called to report the shooting. Police went, heard more gunshots (for the woman, it turned out), and met the woman on the way when she ran toward the police (it is unclear whether it is campus or city police). The woman has not been publicly identified. See
