What a silly conclusion in OP's headline. While the 747 made travel affordable, it's being replaced because there are designs that make for even more affordable travel today including the 777-300 and the 787.

Read the article. 747 ushered in the era of affordable air travel.
Think of a NY HNL flight on this big bird-something to look forward to decades ago. The thrill of the journey was baked in.
Now tons of people fly in a maximum security, one aisle 737-900 stretch with a dreadful connection on the west coast transferring to another 100% overstuffed stretch 73. The faces of the pax tell it all-like scenes from a lockup people counting the seconds
US aircartel recap in the age of algorithmics:
Absolutely none-not one-747 anywhere.
A tiny sprinkling of overstuffed Dreamliner's-a few dozen out of thousands of aircraft
10 x seating, drcades old 777s
United has a total of 17 777-300s out of 800 or so planes. Nice plane if it wasnt for the 10 across seating that means all aisle passengers are struck by carts fas and passing pax every 2 minutes.
