With the tail fuel tank now reactivated, what is the new range of the 747-8i?

I believe it should be back up to the original specification of 8000nm. I think they also made some changes to software to allow the fuel to stay in that tail tank longer, allowing it to help trim the aircraft longer during cruise.

I heard that it's 8100 nm. well, that's good news to hear.
Yeah. PIP is now in place to lessen more the fuel consumption.

The 1st order of 2014, Cargolux with 1 747-8F.

Quote:
Cargolux places order for additional Boeing 747-8 Freighter
Luxembourg, 13th February 2014

Cargolux Airlines International today announced that it has ordered an additional 747-8 Freighter from Boeing as part of its ongoing fleet renewal and expansion program. This additional airplane takes the total orders to 14 B747-8F airplanes. It will support the airline’s growth on the back of an expected increase in cargo volumes fueled by a recovery in world trade growth and improved business confidence.

Cargolux currently operates 9 Boeing 747-8 Freighters and 11 Boeing 747-400 Freighters that are successively replaced by the newer model. The additional 747-8 Freighter is expected to be delivered in March 2015. In 2014, the airline will add LX-VCJ and LX-VCK, two of the new generation aircraft from Boeing, to its fleet.

Since the delivery of the first 747-8 Freighter to launch customer Cargolux in 2011, the new aircraft type has proven to be a valuable addition to the airline’s fleet with unsurpassed economics, lower operational costs and environmental advances. The new Cargolux workhorse has shown high dispatch reliability and, in 2013, has achieved an average daily utilization of almost 16 hours, one of the highest in the industry.

I wish carriers like UPS and FedEx will get this soon too: Saudia Cargo Boeing 747-8F (reg. HZ-AI4)

FedEx is a unlikely customer since they have the 777F on order and that seems to fit them nicely due to the fact they never operated the 747 before. UPS probably wont get any anytime soon due to the fact that they probably could get used 747-400Fs at a cheaper cost. I think it would be cool to see the 747-8F in UPS colors. Congrats to Cargolux on the new order.

So this is the future of the 747 -as a cargo plane. What a dismal end for the onetime Queen of the Skies.

Of the nine 748i BBJ versions eight are as follows:

1. Kuwait
1. Oman
1. Saudi Arabia
2. Abu Dhabi
3. Qatar (includes the ex-Emirs one)

So the ninth one goes to whom, new operator or one of the above?

Just like the 727, 757, 767 and the A300 and A310 and the DC-10 and finally the MD-11. All great aircraft that ended their careers as a cargo hauler. The 747 is no different.

These aircraft all age, and their technology gets old, if not that, times change, demand changes. Better planes are built like the A380 which takes the 747's place.
