Oldest flying 747 finally grounded, 47 years after first flight

"The 747-100 was the 25th to roll off the production line and entered service in 1970 with long-defunct Pan American Airlines, which flew it more than 18,000 times before selling it to GE Aviation in 1991."

That's a lot of flights for a long-defunct airline. What could they have possibly been doing?
