Won't happen, A380 suits their operations better.

And it looks like the revised livery for Dutch carrier KLM has been applied to the B747 as well...

It's finally official! Despite the rumor about sending this historic plane to aircraft graveyard in California, eventually Qantas's VH-OJA has been sent to an aviation museum in Illawara, Woolongong. Making it as the very first Boeing 747-400 to be preserved in a museum!



Amateur videocam of the historic landing:



Cockpit view of VH-OJA's final flight.



This plane broke the record for the longest flight ever undertaken by Boeing 747, back in August 1989 from London to Sydney.

I am very relieved that such historic plane could made its way into a museum INTACT!

There other historical airplanes from the same era who doesn't share the same fortune.
Such as Singapore Airline's 9V-SMU which was (or is actually) 1000th Boeing 747 built. The plane has been converted into a cargo plane.

It looks more likely to be 2019 or 2020 if Cargolux becomes to the 747-8F what Emirates is to the A380-800...

I think I said earlier that if Boeing decides to terminate the 747 programe there will for sure be some last minute 747-8F orders that could delay the end for a bit. But it will only be a delay, it's not like Cargolux will order enough frames to extend the production by more then 1 year.

Boeing 747-8I Receives FAA Approval For ETOPS 330

By Roberto Leiro
March 19, 2015


Quote:
Boeing has announced that the 747-8 Intercontinental aircraft has received the 330-minute Extended Operations (ETOPS) approval from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), marking another major operational milestone in the 747 program as it became the first four-engine aircraft ever in receiving this type of certification.

Although ETOPS has been a requirement for twinjets since the introduction of the regulation three decades ago, revised regulation 14 CFR 121.161 requires four-engine passenger airplanes built after February 2015 to observe ETOPS if the flight route is more than 180 minutes (3 hours), at single-engine speeds, away from a suitable diversionary or emergency en-route airfield.

This new rating extends the maximum distance the 747-8 can fly away by 150 minutes (2.5 hours), thus benefitting operators to fly most direct routes through remote geographic zones such as the south Pacific and certain regions in Africa, covering virtually any worldwide city pair routing. However, ETOPS is not applicable to four-engine cargo aircraft, and government-owned aircraft (including military) are excluded from observing it.
