Custom United Airlines Boeing 747 N198UA PlaneTag


Name *


Boeing 747 Airplane Tag

This Boeing 747 N198UA took its first flight May 1997 and flew international routes for United Airlines until it was retired in March 2009. It began the second journey of its career in March 2012 when its cockpit and controls, engines, pylons, landing gear, actuators, electrical, hydraulics and fuel subsystems were incorporated into the Stratolaunch, the world’s largest aircraft by wingspan. As part of the Stratolaunch, this plane will live on to carry satellites and rockets into space.

Handmade Aviation Collectible

*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully

PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because they are made from real fuselage, each one bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical ones. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty. As a result, you will not have an option to select the color. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular one.

    Nice product VERY overpriced!

    I like the tag but won’t be buying any more. It’s really not worth the high price. There are lots of other aviation themed luggage tags that are more reasonable.

    Ode to the 747….

    It was first given to me as a gift. I was a United F/A for almost 46 years. I love it so much that I bought 2 others to give as gifts to friends of mine who love to travel…mostly on United.

    Uncle says best gift EVER

    So amazing story. My uncle was a 747 pilot for United. I got him this tag for Christmas. He is retired, but has all of his old log books. He not only flew the plane that the tag was made from, but he flew it for the last time with his son, who is also a pilot. That trip was his son’s first time to fly the 747. It was such an epic flight, that the son even made a picture book to commemorate the trip. And my uncle now has a piece of that plane! My uncle hurried to buy his son the exact same tag I got him, so he could have one too. He said it was THE BEAT PRESENT EVER! So thank you!!!!

    Very disappointed

    I purchased the United 747 tag for a retired pilot who flew that plane. I am embarrassed to give it to him as it is so poorly done. The back where the address is is peeling and chipped around the edges. It looks really shabby. What a shame. I loved the idea and wanted to purchase more of them.

    Order never left the factory, twice.

    I actually flew this airplane, NRT-SFO March 2007. So I was quite excited to have this keychain. I ordered it 2 Aug 2020 and requested special engraving. I received notification that a USPS tracking number had been issued but the keychain never left the warehouse. After a month I contacted PlaneTags to inquire about my order. Customer service was very prompt in replying. (Same day) The lady explained they have been having trouble getting orderers out and if it had not left within a week that she would re-order it for me. Which she did a week later. Three more weeks go by (almost two months after my original order) and I contacted customer service again. CS was very fast with a reply. She stated that the second order had also been lost. Feeling let down and frustrated, I canceled the order on Tuesday, 29 Sep. She stated it would take 3-4 days for my credit card to be refunded. I’m hoping mine was an isolated incident. But for it to happen twice makes me wonder. Hope you have better luck than me.

    Do not buy, they won't ship

    I ordered a tag over a month ago, they claimed it shipped on August 6. Since then, the post office is STILL waiting for the tag. Any communication with the company requesting a refund results in a response merely telling me that it is missing. I have had to dispute this charge with my credit card company. Do not trust this company, it may be a scam.

    Great Tag - hope engraving holds up

    This is the 5th or 6th tag I've purchased. They are all great quality and unique. The only concern I have is the engraving appears to be the way the back of the tag is painted or etched away the paint - not engraved into the metal. I hope this holds up to the rigor of road warrior travel once COVID travel restrictions end.

    Plane tag review

    Absolutely love the plane tag! I’ve been at United Airlines for 50 years now. I work at the airport, and I made sure that those 747s got off the ground! There’s a lot of sentiment behind this plane tag. Thank you for making these with the best plane ever!I really hope you have a very thriving business. I intend to order more of these later thank you so much!

    Cool tags

    I love the tags, but was a little bummed with the purchasing process. Upon visiting the site, it prompted me for my contact details in order to receive a coupon. I entered them. When I went to make the purchase, it would not allow me to apply the coupon I received because of customization. I honestly felt a little cheated.

    Plane Disappointed

    Yes, it’s a piece of an airplane cut into an oval and etched with your personal info. I received mine with the paint already chipping off the back edges. Not the end of the world but what’s going to happen after a few trips through a baggage carousel? Not worth $40 in my opinion.
