Do you think they will upgrade to a 744 or 747X?

Could it be a 777?

What do you think?

I'm no expert...but I don't think they'd go with the 777 because it only has two engines. If you're carrying one of the most important people in the world, wouldn't you like four engines backing you up? Just a thought...

I don't think they will upgrade, considering how much time and money it took to modify the two VC25's into what they are now, with confidential anti-missile technology and all sorts of things on it.

Considering the 2 VC-25As, modified Boeing 747-200Bs, each cost $500 Million a piece, I don't think they will upgrade for another 5-10 years.
