Freighters: Boeing’s broad smile

With a flood of orders and two product launches, Boeing has reversed its fortunes in the large freighter market

But then came a dramatic turn­around. In all, according to Thomas Crabtree, regional director, airline market analysis at Boeing, the company received 73 orders for factory-built large widebody freighters in the year to February – this in a sector where an order for 10 aircraft can still make the headlines.

On the downside, Emirates shows no sign of expanding its order for two A380Fs and instead recently ordered eight 777 freighters. “The A380F will not have the same operational flexibility as other types because of the equipment required to load the upper deck,” says Ram Menen, senior vice-president cargo. “Until more airports are equipped with new high loaders that have this capability, the A380Fs will be restricted to our high-density trunk routes.”

Boeing 777 Freighter: World's Largest, Most Capable Twin-Engine Freighter

Responding to strong demand from cargo operators around the world for an efficient, long-range, and high-capacity freighter, Boeing launched the Boeing 777 Freighter in May 2005 with a launch order from Air France. Bringing unsurpassed efficiency to long-haul markets, the 777 Freighter will fly farther than any other freighter, and will provide more capacity than any other twin-engine freighter. The 777 Freighter will be based on the technologically advanced 777-200LR Worldliner ( Longer Range ) passenger airplane, and is scheduled to enter service in fourth quarter 2008.

I think not, but I'd like to know how you may think so?

I'm not sure I see the immediate connection, either... do many passenger airlines run dedicated freighters?
