If the Dreamlifter was a passenger plane, it would have compete with A380.

Saudia Cargo takes delivery of two 747-8F aircraft

Jeddah March 26th 2013

Saudi Airlines Cargo Co. has added two 747-8F aircraft to its current fleet, bringing the total number of freighters operated by the company to 15. The arrival of the new aircraft is expected to further enhance the airline’s position in the global market place and is in keeping with its current growth strategy.

“We are extremely excited to be taking delivery of our first two Boeing 747-8F aircraft,” commented Mohammed Linjawi, VP Operations of Saudia Cargo. “Not only is this one of the best aircraft in the world in terms of air freight performance, it can also accommodate 15 tonnes more than the Boeing 747-400 currently in use,” he added.

Longer than the 747-400F by 5.6 metres, with a maximum structural payload capability of 140 metric tonnes, the 747-8F will be able to accommodate four additional main-deck pallets and three additional lower-hold pallets. In addition to its increased capabilities, the aircraft also benefits from low fuel consumption, rendering it more cost effective than its predecessor.

The first 747-8F was delivered in March and is expected to be operational by May 2013. The second aircraft is scheduled to be delivered in mid-June 2013. Both aircraft will serve the Asia to Europe market, thus fulfilling customer demand for greater capacity on these routes.

Saudi Airlines Cargo operates scheduled freighter services with 15 freighters and sells the belly-capacity on 145 passenger aircraft for Saudi Arabia’s flag carrier Saudia, spanning a rapidly expanding global network of 225 destinations. The cargo airline also provides cost-effective and practical worldwide charter flight solutions from a growing fleet of dedicated charter aircraft.

These will be LN1483 LN1484 and 1486. Cathay will take deliveries of 5 747-8Fs this year, with 2 older frames LN 1438 RC554 B-LJD (now completed, with engines, siting on the flightline and waiting for test flights) and LN1433 RC553 B-LJC (undergoing refurbishment).
The Cathay Pacific order was firmed up at the end of March.
http://active.boeing.com/commercial/orders/index.cfm

They also cancelled their order for 8 777-200F, so Cathay Pacific Cargo will remain an all 747 operator. Although the 777 order was officially cancelled it's actually transferred to Air China Cargo, where they will replace their 747-400BCFs that are sold back to Boeing.

B-LJD flew for it's first time in Sunday.
RC573 N770BA flew for first time yesterday, still no customer, so it probably will be ferried to MZJ for storage.
So only 2 older frames remain LN1432 RC572 HZ-AI4 for Saudi Arabian Cargo should follow soon, and LN1433 RC553 B-LJC for Cathay still under refurbishment, but it will be ready soon.
Boeing started installation of engines on LN 1435 RC021, 2nd 747-8I frame NTU by Lufthansa, this airframe will be used to certify engines, mods and fuel tank. Still no new customer, it's on sale after test.

Boeing has now officially announced that they will reduce the production rate of the 747-8 in the 2nd half of this year.

Quote:
Boeing Adjusts 747-8 Production Rate

EVERETT, Wash., April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced that it will adjust the production rate for the 747-8 program from two airplanes to 1.75 airplanes per month because of lower market demand for large passenger and freighter airplanes.

Boeing will continue to monitor market conditions and their effect on production rates moving forward. The company expects long-term average growth in the air cargo market to resume in 2014, and forecasts a demand for 790 large airplanes (such as the 747-8 Intercontinental) to be delivered worldwide over the next 20 years.

The 747-8 family provides airlines with double-digit improvements in fuel burn, operating costs and emissions, while being 30 percent quieter and adding more capacity. To date, there are 110 orders for passenger and cargo versions of the 747-8, 46 of which have been delivered.

The first delivery of an airplane at the new production rate is expected in early 2014. The production rate change is not expected to have a significant financial impact.

Maybe it is time for Boeing to wake up and realize that the 747 program needs to come to an end. They are not getting any orders unless they are going on an massive selling streak and that does not even sound likely. The 747 is a great plane ( don't get me worng ) and now it seems like the time to preserve it in history. Couldnt imagine what the aviation industry would be today without the 747.

If Boeing can keep selling freight 747 they can easily keep the passenger variant alive without spending too much money. Once the economy gets better I expect more 747 purchase.

Dubai Aerospace Enterprise cancelled the remainder of it's 747-8F order, they still had 5 left from the original order for 10 that was partly taken over from Emirates SkyCargo. This means that it's now 100% clear that Emirates will not fly the 747-8F.

That is not skocking to see. They never did seem to have any interest in the 747-8I/F.

They actually don't even need them. The majority of their cargo is in the belly of regular pax flights. Skycargo only need a few dedicated airframes for the odd connections.

Did you guys know that FlyDubai also mix and match their cargo with Emirates? The reason I mention this is because FlyDubai fly into second, and third tier airports Emirates doesn't service.

Emirates SkyCargo still has 5 777Fs on order, they seem very happy about those planes. It's also cheaper to operate in the light of Emirates gigantic 777-300ER fleet. I guess they only waited with cancelling to see how the airfreight market would develop. Since it's still declining worldwide there was no reason to keep it up so they cancelled their lease order with Dubai Aerospace Enterprise that in it's turn cancelled the order with Boeing. And if the market rebounds in a couple of years they can always order some more 777s

And Dubai Aerospace Enterprise as a lessor is also not the biggest success story. They went on an order spree in 2007, but since 2010 there only have been cancellations of orders. They now only have the 777F on order for Emirates.

I just saw an article about EY leasing an 747-8F from Atlas air effective this month. It will be pretty neat to see that if that goes through. Altas air has one more 747-8F on order with delievery happening soon.
