It can be done but I think it has to be a VFR flight. If you want to fly it in legs then you have to find the neaerst airport to where you want to stop by using the nearest airport option on the ATC and you can look at your GPS for the runways. I wouldn't take my advice to seriously though because I'm not certain. I'd wait for more experienced advice before setting off. 😀 Good Luck

This is more difficult to answer than you might think because you don't give any hint on how 'realistic' you want to do it.

Planning a long trip like that, I always have an atlas and a notebook by my side. Next question, which 747, payware, freeware or default.
If you use default or freeware 747s you can use unlimited fuel or not. If you calculate fuel for each leg, then of course you should also calculate weight, weather etc.

You've got some decisions to make first Read

In flight planner choose your first and your last airports and also choose VFR and DIRECT GPS type of flight.For example:LGAV - KJFK.
Then hit Nav Log and you will see your route showing in the map with a purple line.
Now you can drag this line with your left mouse click to every airport you want to land between these two airports you have already selected.When you live the left click of the mouse you will notice that this airport showing in the Nav Log.With this way you create a Multiple Waypoint flight.
If you double click in an airport in the map you can see all the needed data about it(ILS & Tower Frequencies,runway(s)length and position,altitude etc.)

After finishing your first flight save it.Then you can start from there to continue to next destination etc.

If you try it with a 747 you have to be careful about the airports your are going to select cause of the size of this great craft.

I woud say that if you are going to do it in the 747 you should be flying IFR. In this case you would file each flight individually saving the flight at the end of each session.
I would say do it in flights of about 3-4 hours long where possible(otherwise you might get a bit bored at 38,000ft and need to resort to the sim rate increase). plus this will allow for interesting stops.

I'm not sure where you are planning on starting off but if it were me I would do something like
London Heathrow (United Kingdom) - Athens (Greece)
Athens (Greece) - Dubai (UAE)
Dubai Dubai (UAE)- Mombai[Bombay](India)
Mombai[Bombay](India) - Dhaka(Bangladesh)
Dhaka(Bangladesh)- Bangkok(Thailand)
Bangkok(Thailand) - Jakarta(Indonesia)
Jakarta(Indonesia)- Darwin(Australia)
Darwin(Australia) - Sydney(Australia)
Sydney(Australia) - Christchurch(New Zealand)
ChristchurchNew Zealand) - Aipa(samoa)
Aipa(samoa) - Honolulu(Hawaii)
Honolulu(Hawaii) - Los angeles(USA)
Los angeles(USA) - Chicago(USA)
Chicago(USA) - Halifax(Canada)
Halifax(Canada) - Dublin(Ireland)
Dublin(Ireland) - Heathrow(UK)

Make sure that if you are just doing flights of a few hours you don't fill the fuel tank up completely otherwise you may be overweight on landing.
