I was surfing in Boeing website and found in the orders and deliveries page that Korean Air have order 2 more 747. Here are my questions, why hasn't Boeing make an announcemente of the order? What version of the 747 is 747-400, 747-400ER, 747-400F or 747-400ERF?

Thanks

Juanchito

Personally I think that Korean has enough 747's I think that the 777 or/and the 7E7 would suit there needs.

My first inclination would be to think they are 744Freighters. These are hot right now in Asia.

Anybody have any other info?



Ding! You are now free to keep supporting Frontier.

my guess is the 747ER freighters, they have one or some already and they are probably happy with them for the extra range they offer.

I don't think KAL would need the 744ER, they don't fly long enough routes.. Same goes for the 744ERF. I would put my money on the 744F.

Well with the additional 747F's coming on board, I wonder how long before the MD11 goes away. Since the MD11's are already configured for freight, should be a hot product for UPS, FEDEX, or Gemini.

Why is Boeing sitting on these orders?

It's common practice to not announce orders until all details/payments are confirmed.

You think Boeing's bad? Airbus has been known to "sit" on orders for years.

KE will not be receiving any more 744 pax versions as we currently have sufficient to meet requirements. Any new orders will be 777's, A330's, A380's and 7E7. Only 744 orders will be for 744ERF (I believe no 744F orders in this bunch).

Reason for the 744ERF freighter is to eliminate the required fuel stop at ANC on some flights and allow a heavier payload ICN-LAX.

MD-11's are scheduled to be phased out by 2005.

Thanks for the explanation, ConcordeBoy. Oddly enough, I was under the impression that, for Airbus anyway, it was the other way around: announcing orders as soon as an agreement had been reached to tentatively sign a letter of intent. As far as Boeing not announcing these, I got the impression from early posts that the orders were signed, sealed and finalized but, for some reason, weren't yet publicly announced.

This order was announced at the Airshow this year, that's why Boeing has not publically 're-announced' the finalizing of the contract.

An LOI for 777s is still pending finalization.
