Will that be a slap in the face for airbus, despite getting lesser number compared to A380, one of the appeal for 748 is that it's possible to convert it to cargo use as it has been done on the previous variant. It's still a popular cargo aircraft.

TK has already downplayed the rumor that they will be ordering the 747, simply by saying they will not.

The 747-8 will probably not have a cargo conversion program because there will be too few frames available to make it profitable to launch such a program

I only report what a Boeing Employee on the 747 program told me, hence my doubt. I wouldn't call it fake news.

It won't be painted at Everett. It will get painted post outfitting just like their other 747-8i
