Boeing Touting 3 Types Of 747 Freighters. +A.Q...

Thu Dec 22, 2005 8:04 am


I was noticing how Boeing is offering these three freighters...the 744-BCF would come from existing airframes (of course). Overall, I just found it interesting that the 747 freighter programs are pretty well-rounded for an airliner that is supposed to be out-of-date by some peoples' accounts.

**Mind you, they also offer the 772LRF.

Does Airbus offer an A330 or A340 cargo version, or converted cargo version? I haven't heard that they do. And if they do not, seems odd to me considering their runaway success with the A300F series.
Ding! You are now free to keep supporting Frontier.

Quoting DIA (Thread starter):

What about the 767-300ERF?

As far as I know, Airbus does not currently offer either an A330 or A340 freighter variant, whether new build or conversion. I strongly suspect that in the future the A330 will be a superb conversion candidate; this'll be way after the A350 is introduced.
