FWIW I was on one of Korean Air's 747SP's from SFO to Seoul a couple of
weeks ago. I must say this aircraft seems quite old. According to their
fleet list, they have 2 747SP's. My return flight was a newer aircraft
run by Singapore airlines, a 747-400 megatop. Very fancy and interesting
since with the route map on your personal display you can learn quite a bit
about where you are and how fast/high you are travelling.
