Faux Pas In LH’s Magazine: B 747-700

Flew LH today and when leafing through their magazine, edition 12/2008, (recently they had a nice article about the production of their first A380s) I read that Lufthansa has made test flights with a B 747-700. The objective of these test flights were noise reduction.

There was even a picture of this new fleet member but even after plane spotting for over 25 years I couldn’t see the difference between this new type and a B 747-400.

Has anybody else seen this Faux-Pas? Or has anybody else seen similar mistakes in an airline’s magazine?

Of course there are many "faux pas" but does that really matter so much? Mistyping 747-700 instead of 747-400 is something which can happen to anyone.
Most of these magazines are written and corrected by text writing / editing bureaus or some interns or juniors at the PR department, most often not people with a special interest in airplanes. People here act upset like if the CEO writes the magazine himself and seems to not have a clue about planes.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
