Thanks for sharing the great and welcome news for the B747 program. Congrats to Boeing on the deal. Kudos and thumbs up to UPS for acquiring the iconic B747 to carry their cargo/packages! Cheers! T7 ( All hail to the Queen of the Skies! )

Great news indeed!

With a firm order of 14 aircraft and options for an additional 14 more at the current build rate (1.00 per month), this deal with UPS will ensure a 36 month extension to the 747-8F program.

Now GJ200's can provide us a rendering of the 747-8F in UPS livery, Yes!

You will be impressed with the newest version of the Queen!

I flew on Air China 2 years ago, was originally booked to fly on their older B744 bird; cheapest flights I I could find for a family of 4.

However, when I called them to confirm my online reservation (I feel better when I know a human at their call centre can verify the online booking I made) the kind lady informed me that they switched their B747-400 plane to their newest B747-8 bird and apologized for the switcheroo!

I replied = Thank you, and no apologies required from Air China! (Ah, the smell of a brand new airplane cabin when flying = Sweeeeeeeet! )
