The info. on the new 747 plans augment that of the blurb in the current Flight International. After all of the prior proposals it's hard to take any of them seriously, however...

Don't judge the journalists and aircraft manufacturers too hard. We're living in
very uncertain times. Journalists speculate to earn their living and CEOs at the
aircraft manufacturers sweat to make the right decisions on very big projects.
Time will tell.

Very true, Bromma1968. Guess I'm a bit jaded from reading about too many 747 derivative proposals. There will be a 744 replacement market but it will be largely filled by A346s and 773ERs and for those who want to go bigger, A388s. A slight stretch makes some sense to better position a newer 747 in a unique market niche but I can't help but think it'll be a small niche. But as you said, time will tell.

"AIRBUS EXECUTIVES reiterated their conviction that mainstream airlines in the next 20 years will take delivery of 1,500 A380-category long-range transports, including 300-350 freighters. "We never assumed that Airbus would have the entire market; one type or another of '747X' will come," he (John Leahy, Airbus' chief commercial officer) added."

Funny how John Leahy seems to know more about the 747's future than even Boeing!  Wink/being sarcastic
