BAW Flight 3571

Thu Feb 23, 2012 7:56 pm

Just saw on flightaware and planefinder that this flight from FRA- ORD is a 747-8. I didn't know that BA had these. Any thoughts?

It's a cargo bird...BA's leasing a couple of 747-8F's from Global Supply Systems.

Believe me, I am desperately hoping against hope that BA buys a few 747-8i's    but I don't think it's going to happen...

BA3571 routes STN-FRA-ORD-ATL.

The return flight, BA3587, routes ATL-STN-FRA-DXB-PVG.
