The Singapore-based cargo carrier Jett8, currently operating two 747-200Fs (one nose-door freighter, one SF, both former Nippon Cargo), has been operating the latest (2008-delivered) Jade 747-400ERF since a few weeks which is flying in full Jade livery with large Jett8 titles on the rear fuselage. Jett8 is, according to flightglobal, receiving an own 747-400F from an undisclosed source soon, and plans to add two more next year. One of the 742Fs will be used as backup, the second one leased out as the older type becomes too expensive to operate due to the high fuel prices.

Quoting PhilSquares (Reply 3): They aren't. All of SQ's 744-412s are already sold. They are for the most part on lease back agreements.
Thanks for clarifying that the SQ 744s are all sold. But as SIA is withdrawing one 744 after another at roughly a pace of about one frame every two months that does not necessarily exclude Jett8 might 3 aircraft which will be converted once leaving SQs fleet. Or do you mean all are sold to airlines who will actually operate them by themselves?

Quoting EarlyNFF (Reply 9): so, obviously you know more, (or know it better), why not share your knowledge?
What "knowledge" is there to share? There are 10 new 744s to be built and they're all allocated so unless someone else has started making Boeing 747s then it's simply impossible that they can be getting new 744Fs.
