TransAero Airlines (TAER) is scheduled to take two 747-8 jumbo jets this year, Wojick said.

Boeing reports that the seat-mile cost of the 747-8 intercontinental is 10% lower and 15% more fuel efficient compared to the 747-400, with nearly equivalent trip costs.

Some company some where has that statistic. Too bad it will never become public.

Lufthansa knows.

And they did published some statistics some time ago that I can't find straight away. But from what I remember their A380s had about 1 or 2% seat cost advantage over their 747-8Is. With the disclaimer that their 747-8Is have a more premium lay-out then their A380s.

The reality probably is that the A380 and the 747-8I are really close and that

Another good news for the fans of Boeing 747: Qantas's first Boeing 747-400, VH-OJA, will be preserved!
This particular plane broke the longest commercial flight ever done by Boeing 747: a non stop flight from London Heathrow to Sydney Kingsford Smith airport, back in 1989.

This plane will be the first Boeing 747-400 preserved in the museum.

More of the news:

Wollongong final resting place for Queen of the Skies

January 19, 2015



More than 25 years after it touched down in Australia, the final resting place of the Qantas 747 jumbo that set a record by making the longest non-stop flight for an airline is expected to be a museum south of Wollongong.
Named the City of Canberra, the Boeing 747-400 is likely to be gifted to the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society at the Illawarra Regional Airport, and in the process become a major tourist attraction for the region.
Registered VH-OJA, the jumbo has been parked at Qantas' jet base at Sydney Airport since it made its last commercial flight from Johannesburg in South Africa to Sydney last week.
Instead of sending it to an aircraft graveyard in a desert in California, Qantas wants the aircraft preserved because of its historical value. The Boeing 747-400 jumbo set a record in August 1989 for the longest non-stop flight for an airline when it flew from London to Sydney in 20 hours and nine minutes.
While it was categorised as a commercial flight, the jumbo carried only 23 people, including the crew.
Since it began flying, the City of Canberra has carried more than 4 million passengers and flown almost 85 million kilometres – equivalent to making 110 return trips to the moon.
A Qantas spokesman said it was yet to finalise the jumbo's fate but sources say it it is almost certain to end up at the aviation museum near Wollongong.
"This aircraft is part of Australia's aviation history and we're finalising the best way to preserve it," the Qantas spokesman said.
The Historical Aircraft Restoration Society is home to a range of planes such as an F-111 fighter bomber and one of the few Lockheed Constellations – affectionately known as Connies – to still fly.
The aircraft restoration society's president, Bob De La Hunty, said the aviation museum would be delighted to take the jumbo because it would be a major attraction in the Illawarra.
Qantas dubbed the City of Canberra and the other 747-400 jumbos in its fleet Longreach, as a tribute to the airline's second home in Queensland after it began it operations in Winton in November 1920.
The City of Canberra's retirement leaves the airline with just 12 jumbos, nine of which have been refurbished and fly to destinations such as Tokyo, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
Over the years Qantas has had 65 jumbo jets in its fleet.
The Qantas Founders Museum in the Queensland town of Longreach is also the home to a decommissioned 747-200.
Qantas donated the classic jumbo – named the City of Bunbury – to the museum in 2002 to mark the airline's 82nd anniversary.
But many of Qantas' retired 747s have ended up in the Mojave Desert in southern California.
Late last year Qantas also retired from passenger services the last of its Boeing 767 aircraft, which had been a workhorse of its fleet for more than 30 years.
One of the 767s has ended up at a new aircraft "boneyard" in Alice Springs, while others have gone to Victorville, the world's largest plane parking yard at the edge of the Mojave Desert.
The 767s are more likely to find a new owner than many retired Qantas 747 jumbos.
Once dubbed the "Queen of the Skies", many of the 747s are likely to be broken up for scrap because of a weak second-hand market for the aircraft.

I was always under the impression that it almost never snows on the North Pole.

Not too surprising, but it is always nice to have official confirmation.

There was talk about the Air Force going for a 777-9X replacement instead. A very real possibility as the 747 program is gradually wound down.
