Who was the last passenger 747 operator in the United States before DL/NW and UA? When was the last pax 747 retired before DL/NW and UA?

There are only maybe 6 or 7 passenger airlines who would even be in a position to fly the 747 to begin with. So you're asking who was among the first, but not actually the first to retire it?
