but with the delivery of the 4 recent GE
powered 744s for CI
, their website still shows only 13 passenger 747s in service. They had 4 Pratt planes from the early 90s which are a different seating configuration to the other 9 Pratt ones delivered starting 95. One of their early 744s has gone to Boeing for LCF conversion, one was parked at TPE
painted all white (also for LCF??? - at least one CA
plane is also for LCF conversion but the identity of the 3rd AFAIK is not known). Have they withdrawn the other 2 also? Why? Were they due for a D check or something and they figure it wasn't worth the money to do that and reconfigure the cabins??
