Just saw on flightaware and planefinder that this flight from FRA- ORD is a 747-8. I didn't know that BA had these. Any thoughts?

It's a cargo bird...BA's leasing a couple of 747-8F's from Global Supply Systems.

Believe me, I am desperately hoping against hope that BA buys a few 747-8i's    but I don't think it's going to happen...
