I seem to have missed a lot about the 748 program: first flight of freighter and pax version, EIS of both, production rate. Could someone provide the info, please?

All indications from Boeing are that the program is still on track. The parts with the longest lead times (undercarriage and such) are already in production.

Does anybody feel that once we have the 'real world' numbers on the 748I when it goes thru flight testing, that perhaps it could change a few minds of the 'undecided' airlines?? I'm not saying setting the world on fire with sales, but it's hard to say how the numbers of the 748I will stack up to the 380 and 77W for that matter, until we actually see it fly. I mean look how far off Boeing was on their numbers with the 77W and Airbus on the 380. Both of these aircraft have proven to be much more efficient aircraft than either manufacturer predicted. I'm hoping to see at least 50-60 748Is in the sky.


We often judge others by their actions, but ourselves by our intentions.

77W was better off by single digit % points and the A380 has not been "off", just very late! For that matter the A340NG hasn't been off either in operating costs, the margin with the 77W just increased when Boeing did better than they predicted.

When you're dealing with hundreds of millions of dollars at list prices, millions of gallons of fuel, millions of dollars in maintenance and other very high costs and measuring standards, single digit percentage points are an actual gold mine in terms of cost savings and efficiency!!

I hope for Boeing's sake that the 748i exceeds expectations, somehow manages to get more range and better fuel efficiency. I'm still holding out for some orders once testing gets underway and some numbers are presented to the airlines on the fence.
