They have ordered five of those beauties.

I was checking the wiki page of the -8 and saw that there are two orders for the Intercontinental from an undisclosed customer. Who could that be?

Air China has 5 on firm order, however in March of 2013, they added on 2 more. Unfortunately, with the way it works for those airlines, it has to be confirmed by the government before it can be truly firmed. Usually Boeing doesn't list it until that happens.

The 2 UFOs for the 747-8 are speculated to be these 2 frames for CA. Boeing listed them along with the Transaero frames at the end of 2013, so perhaps there has been notice or financial commitment from the Chinese government, but the formal announcement is awaiting something else.

If it isn't for them, then I have no idea who it could be for. :-)

The formal announcement from Boeing could be very close to the delivery, these 2 UFOrders are from Air China.

Interestingly enough, Boeing still list the 2 delivered 747-8Fs for Saudia as an order for an Unidentified Customer.

Just curious to know. Why no project from Boeing similar to A380.

I meant the complete Double deck flight. Any possibility of getting it from Boeing in the name of 797 or any other code.

747-8I is not still enough to put on competition with the competitor !

There were such projects from Boeing and McDonnell Douglas.

The reason why they never developed them further due to financial reasons: for most airlines around the world filling up the cabin of jumbojet proved to be difficult.

Additionally, Boeing was part of the group studying the feasibility of aircraft this size in conjunction with Airbus, back in the early 90's. It was originally going to be a joint project that would be used to defray costs for what was considered a small market. Eventually, after more research, Boeing decided to not pursue that project any further.

then boeing got ahead of the industry with the 787 with there fuel efficient plane ....which lead to the 777x and 747-8i. Using the 787 technology and using it with other planes.

It's a more handsome take on the ugly A380

Seriously .... the 380 looks like a fat elephant vs the skinnier 747.

D-ABYP, the 1500th 747, has rolled out earlier tonight. Images courtesy of Matt Cawby. Interestingly, he also noted that 1499, the Air China frame, was rolled back into the FAL.

That's quite a milestones. Will the launching also be accompanied by a party like what they did with the 1000th Boeing 747 (it was held by Singapore Airlines and Boeing at Everett).

It's amazing that Boeing 747 has reached the 1500th milestones.

I remember when they rolled out the 1000th Boeing 747, they did that with fanfare. The aircraft was originally belonged to Singapore Airlines.



It is rather unfortunate that although the plane is still flying, it has since been reconfigured into a cargo plane. Rendering anyone who wants to fly on it as passenger quite impossible.
