Hey, I know that the 747-400`s have the "older" CRT display`s.
I also know that the 400ER´s have the "newer" LCD display`s,
so my question is are any airlines upgrading their CRT displays in the 747 to LCD`s ?

Not quite. I am in DXB right now and I flew a 744F, 9V-SFO, it's our newest 744F and it has the LCD displays. IIRC all 400's from about 18 months ago have the LCD displays. There is a PIP to upgrade the CRTs to LCD.

Couldn't even begin to guess. It's really up to the individual airlines. I know SQ is in the process of looking at the upgrade for the freighter and perhaps the pax fleet if it's cost effective.

Phil

slightly off topic i know, was just wondering when your a pilot for an ailrine who operates the pax and frieghter version of an aircraft such as SQ and their 400's, do you fly Pax and cargo ops? do you stick to one or the other??

Thanks
Matt

It depends. We have SIA, you fly both Pax and Cargo, then we have SIA Cargo where you fly just cargo.

I fly both. Salary is about the same, although the Cargo operation was recently started and their overall package is a little lower.

If pay were the same, I'd take cargo anytime!

LCDs cost more but they run cooler, weigh less, and consume less power.

I think that it's one of those long-term vs. short-term issues where if you plan on keeping the AC around for awhile it saves to use LCDs over CRTs.

Aren't CRTs much better in this respect than LCDs (at least in terms of domestic units) - or was that what you meant, Mel?

Cathay Pacific converted a 747-400F from CRT to LCD for trial purposes sometime ago but since then she had been reverted back to CRT.

I find it doubtful that CX would do something like this, I know B-HUQ arrived this year from Boeing with LCDs, they didn't change this to CRT for fleet commonality did they?

The reason was to test the usage of LCD on 747-400. That was before the newest B744F joined the fleet. Thereafter she was converted back to CRT after the trial duration ended.

B-HUQ still feature LCD displays and it's kept unchanged.

Why did they not opt to keep the LCD screens.

Probably because out of the 6 400F`s CX have and only B-HUQ has been delivered with LCD´S it is cheaper to have 1 LCD plane and 5 CRT`S compared to 4 CRT`S and 2 LCD`S.

Please Correct me if im wrong  Smile

I could understand if it was commonolity in spares.Then all would be CRT equipped.But considering the Benefits of LCD would'nt a gradual change to LCD be a good decision.

Really? What aircraft will replace the 744s? Or do we not know yet? I was under the impression that the 772s were going to be replaicng the 763 for the most part.
