Qantas Long Range 747-400

Wed Dec 30, 1998 10:27 am

I think Qantas Airways will the first airline to order the long range 747-400. They were the first airline to ask Boeing for the 747-400. They want the aircraft to expand beyond the west coast of the U.S and to Europe from Sydney.

I agree with you United777. They have already ordered the 747-400IGW from Boeing and will have them delivered whenever the next three 747s are due down in the Outback. The 747-200ERX will be a great aircraft and my favorite if it is launched.

The 747-200 ERX will be a good aircraft. Espically for Pacific routes.

That is why Cathay Pacific, SIA and Malaysia all want the 747-200ERX. It will allow for nonstop service to New York from Hong Kong.
