For a single model, for Boeing it would be the 747-400. That plane sold immensely well and had the highest yield as in mark up of any plane during the 90s when it was being sold in mass quantities very quickly. It was also the most expensive plane at the time.
|Quoting JAM747 (Thread starter):|
Which planes have been the most profitable to Boeing and Airbus? I would think that the ones in production the longest would be the ones most likely or am I wrong? Does anyone know?
|Quoting PanAm747 (Reply 1):|
I have heard that the 747 is a cash cow for Boeing, especially freighter versions. That doesn't mean that other airplanes are unprofitable, just that the profit margin is higher.

I'm willing to bet the 737 has definitely repaid its development costs and todays sales are icing on a 30 year old cake.
