TWA no longer flies 747s.  Their last 747 flight was either to or from
TLV (I think, anyway), and the plane was retired just under a year ago
(mid February, 1998).  The lawsuit is because sometimes TWA would put a
747-100 on the route (which does not have the range to go TLV-JFK, with
winds and such) instead of a 747-200 (which could make it).
