Hey! I understand what the 747-400 is and what -400 means and the same for all other aircraft. But what does -438, or -2Q8 or 767-323 or others mean?! Are they specifications? Do the type of engines determine this? Is it visually evident?

Thanks!

Like we have mentioned recently before, it is the Boeing customer identification number/letter system.

Hey -438

Lets take the great QANAS for exapmle:
All of QF's aircraft have a registry w/ Boeing (for example)... QF is -X38

767-238ER
767-338ER
747-338ER
747-438 etc... etc... etc...

United is -X22

747-422
777-222
767-322 etc... etc... etc...

you get the point... there are some extreme exceptions.... Smile
