I've searched around the web for quite some time for information on what exactly are the differences between different subtypes of an airplane. I don't mean a 747-400 vs a 747-300, I mean a 747-422 vs a 747-4Q8. Does anyone know what these differences are, or a web site that explains them? Thanks

They are not exactly subtypes, but rather 2 digit/letter codes Boeing assigns to individual airlines. For example KLM is -06, Singapore is -12 BA is -36 UAL -22. Hope this helps.

You can also identifie the leasing companies on this way, like ILFC = Q8.

For a list of different costumer codes, have a look at http://www.jetairliners.com/cbsmf.htm.

Thanks, I didn't realize that Boeing did this with individual airlines, I thought it had something to do with engines and other options. As they say, you learn something new every day. Again, thanks.

Airbus presently has this subtype notation for the A380-800:

A380-841 Trent 970-powered passenger version
A380-861 GP7270-powered passenger version

A380-843F Trent 977-powered freighter
A380-863F GP7277-powered freighter
