There was some discussion on the forum recently about Boeing planning to produce a stretched 747(500?). Does anyone know if this is a definate go ahead or is this still in the planning stages. Also what airlines would most likely order it? Chris.

I have not herd of a "definite" go ahead for a stretched 747, only that the project is being reviewed and there should be a decision regarding it soon - if Boeing wants to, they can make it, work on the design has been going on for a wile.

A couple days ago, I posted a comment from Boeing's CEO that Boeing would not be building a double decker aircraft to compete with the A3xx, as Mirage pointed out Boeing already has the current 747 to use.

I personally would like to see Boeing go ahead with a stretched 747-500, the definite answer should be coming out soon.
