Russia's Transaero just has made public their intention to buy 4 A380's. Bur they also want to purchase the B747-8i. Just as LH and KE have done. Transaero would be the third airline (if all deals come trough) to be operating both VLA 4-engined airliners.

Transaero, one of Russia's largest airlines, has signed a deal with U.S. aircraft manufacturer Boeing to buy four Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental airliners for $1.3 billion at catalog prices, Transaero General Director Olga Pleshakova announced Tuesday.

The catalog price for each Boeing 747-8I, which will be delivered in a high seat configuration, is $330 million. Whether Transaero has paid this amount remains to be seen as often discounts are awarded for various reasons such as launch customer in a certain region and loyalty.

The deal would make Transaero the first airline in Russia, the CIS and East European countries to operate the long-haul wide-body Boeing-747-8I.

In late October, Transaero signed a $1.5 billion deal with the European Airbus consortium to buy four A380 aircraft. Deliveries will start from the fourth quarter of 2015.

I've always been very fond of the 747, but I don't think this iteration is the most attractive one. Still an amazing plane though, no doubt about that.

It is a beautiful plane. But it will be most likely be the last iteration of the Queen unless orders are coming in very soon which I doubt. Boeing will but their future efforts into iterations of the 777, which will be in production probably at the same time as the A350-1000.

To put things into perspective, the orderbook for the 748 passenger version is lower than the latest 777 order from Emirates (50 773ER).

Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental Receives FAA Certification

EVERETT, Wash., Dec. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) received certification for the new 747-8 Intercontinental from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Certification clears the way for delivery of the new airplane early next year.

The FAA presented Boeing an Amended Type Certificate (ATC) and the amended Production Certificate for Boeing's newest passenger airplane, the 747-8 Intercontinental Wednesday. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is expected to issue its ATC for the airplane Thursday. Boeing received its FAA and EASA certificates for the 747-8 Freighter in August.

"This is a great achievement for Boeing and for the 747-8 program," said Jim Albaugh, president and CEO, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, "We look forward to delivering this fabulous airplane to our customers."

The certificates validate that the design of the 747-8 Intercontinental is compliant with all aviation regulatory requirements and the production system can produce a safe and reliable airplane, conforming to the airplane's design.

"Soon people around the world will fly on the newest 747," said Elizabeth Lund, vice president and general manager, 747 program. "This is a great day for our customers and for a team that has worked incredibly hard to certify the newest version of the Queen of the Skies."

The 747 program is now in the final stages of preparing to deliver the first 747-8 Intercontinental early next year.

The 747-8 Intercontinental provides double-digit improvements in fuel economy and carbon emissions per passenger and generates a 30 percent smaller noise footprint than the 747-400. The new 747-8 Intercontinental features a new wing design and an upgraded flight deck and applies 787 Dreamliner inspired interior features including a new curved, upswept architecture giving passengers a greater feeling of space and comfort.

The first 8I will be a BBJ and will be delivered to a completion center where it will receive it's luxurious interior. The 1st delivery to Lufthansa should be in March.

Boeing Delivers First 747-8 Freighter for AirBridgeCargo Fleet

[IMG]http://i39.************/df7v6.jpg[/IMG]

EVERETT, Wash., Jan. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE:BA) and AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), part of Volga-Dnepr Group, celebrated today the delivery of the first of five new Boeing 747-8 Freighters to the airline.

"The introduction of the Boeing 747-8F represents a huge commitment to our customers since we are investing in state of the art equipment to further expand our network," said Tatyana Arslanova, executive president of AirBridgeCargo Airlines. "We have a firm belief that our established and new customers will greatly benefit from the additional features the airplane will provide such as enhanced payload. With the introduction of the Boeing 747-8F, we'll have the youngest freighter fleet in the industry while maintaining the highest standards of environmental compliance."

"ABC is a valued customer of Boeing that has built a very successful cargo business with the help of 11 747 Freighters and we're confident ABC will maintain its impressive rate of growth, supported by the new fleet of Boeing 747-8 Freighters," said Marty Bentrott, vice president of Sales for Russia, Central Asia and Middle East, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

The new 747-8 Freighter is 250 feet, 2 inches (76.3 m) long, which is 18 feet and 4 inches (5.6 m) longer than its predecessor, the 747-400 Freighter. The stretch provides customers with 16 percent more revenue cargo volume, which translates to four additional main-deck pallets and three additional lower-hold pallets. The 747-8 Freighters are powered with GE's GEnx-2B engines.

The addition of the 747-8 to ABC's fleet is an important step in its long-term business strategy. In addition to the five 747-8 Freighters it has on order, AirBridge Cargo has options for an additional five more airplanes.
