Volga-Dnepr Group, which took delivery of its first 747-8 freighter in 2012, will acquire the additional 20 planes through a mix of direct purchases and leasing over the next seven years, Boeing added.

Chance is they will either replace it with Boeing 777-300ER (or Boeing 777X in the future), or if they're looking for something bigger they might opt for Airbus A380.

I was wondering, if Boeing 747-8i can fly in the same distance as Boeing 777-200LR, it might be able to draw interest from the likes of Singapore Airlines or Qantas.

On my part, I just wish that they pitch it to Delta and United.

The big american airlines dont like the 380 ...... they think / believe that they rather have more frequent flights overseas to London, Paris, and so one. Over having 1 big flight over.

More frequent flights gives travels more options and flexibility when leaving.


And i doubt airlines will go for the 8i ..... rumors of emirates wanting them for about a year now. But we will see if that ever happens. (doubtful)

In fact the future of jumbojet in general is in doubt. The arrival of Boeing 777-300ER is truly a game changer in aviation industry. For the first time, major airlines can change their 4 engined jumbojets with something smaller and more economical, yet able to fly longer than Boeing 747-400.

Wouldn't that be the 777-200ER? It can fly 7,700 nautical miles (compared with the 747-400's 7,670 nautical miles), and it precedes the 777-300ER by nearly a decade.

So it looks as if the 747 will, after all, make it to its 50th anniversary since the first plane was entered into service by Pan-Am.

The 747 is only succesfull with the Freighter Version. The passenger version is almost dead. If A380 would come with a Freighter version the B747 would have a hard time.

Boeing plans to further slow 747 jet production in 2016

SEATTLE | BY ALWYN SCOTT
Business | Wed Jun 24, 2015 4:14pm EDT


Quote:
Boeing Co (BA.N) said on Wednesday it would slow production of its 747-8 jumbo jet by 23 percent to one per month starting in March, an effort to keep the production line running amid sluggish demand for the iconic, humped-top plane.

Boeing, the world's largest plane maker, is currently building 747s at a rate of 1.5 a month and had already announced plans to reduce the rate to 1.3 a month from September.

The company said the decision to slow production further was not related to Tuesday's announcement that President Dennis Muilenburg will succeed Jim McNerney as chief executive on July 1.

(...) "With recent orders and commitments, along with these changes announced today, we anticipate a stable future for the 747 production system," Bruce Dickinson, vice president and general manager of the 747 program, said in an internal company report on Wednesday.

The 747 has become a workhorse for air freight companies and is appreciated for its large capacity that allows it to carry long cargo such as pipe segments.

Even though the cargo market is recovering, the "overcapacity of freighters in the market" has prompted Boeing to slow production, Dickinson said.

Looks like another one of the NTUs is getting placed. Atlas updated their fleet status today, and disclosed that they have ordered 1 frame for delivery in November of this year. Perhaps this is the undisclosed order from June 4th?

Since it is such a short turnaround from order to delivery, and there are no free slots (unless CX #14 is once again pushed back from 1526 to 1532, and 1526 frees up), then one of the remaining 3 Asiana NTUs are likely to go to Atlas.

I suppose they could also potentially take 1437, as it should be like the newer frames, just a little heavier.

Boeing 777-200ER may be able to fly longer than Boeing 747-400, but it carry much less passenger. While Boeing 777-300ER passenger capacity is nearly identical to Boeing 747-400, not to mention its ability to fly longer than the jumbojet.

Yeah, that was my first instinct as well when I first heard the news. Do all frames do a B1, even if they are just going into storage? If not, you may well have found the smoking gun. :-)

A piece of administrative information that 747classic found however also points to 1437 perhaps being prepped for a customer as well. She apparently is scheduled for a C1 TBD and Delivery TBD.

Maybe the unidentified order from June 4th isn't this Atlas order and there are two singletons that will be delivered this year!
