the 77W 3x4x3 coach seat cram now being quickly adopted by airlines help drive a lower CASM. Perhaps a new coach seat arraignment 3x5x3 for the 748 is in order?

I think for many it is the icon of modern jets, graceful lines, I actually like the 748i
|Quoting TWA772LR (Reply 8):|
The 747-8 is the most aesthetically pleasing aircraft ever designed, IMO. No aircraft will even come that close.
|Quoting hz747300 (Reply 17):|
Why don't they make a civilian Globemaster III, a triple decker. I would put a gas tank the size of a four car garage in the centre by the undercarriage, make the wings, and full t-tail all additional tanks. Flatten out the back to make more room for seats since you don't need to be able to drive cars in and out.
|Quoting SCAT15F (Thread starter):|
As most of us remember, last year 747 program head Elizabeth Lund hinted at the possibility of a stretch. Given the lack of orders and 779X economics, why not do a "simple stretch" (ala 787-10) of the -8i to a full 80 meters? Call it a last ditch attempt...

Airbus predicts 28,198 passenger and freighter aircraft deliveries to 2031, that seems awfully optimistic

Why x 3? They get by fine with 2 now.
|Quoting airlinebuilder (Reply 28):|
The B748i i totally agree to a post here, came in way way way too late, and a freighter statistics does not really get much credit as compared to a passenger aircraft sales. COLD TRUTH.
|Quoting airlinebuilder (Reply 30):|
Exactly my point STITCH, with so many variants of the B747xs and what have you, they were not able to market it to look attractive for the airliners specs, otherwise they would have beat the A380 way ahead of its launch...
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 27):|
Boeing could go longer if they wanted, but I expect they would have made the 747-8 79m or 80m if they felt it was appropriate.

Sorry guys , i cannot understand all your intersting litterature . I am a 747 and FOUR Engined aircraft Lover .
Why shoudn't Boeing seriously take the MD12X project again ? And reactulize it to compete the 388 ?or even take the 747-500X project and sale it to strong international carriers in order to FILL UP the 747 or Boeing 4 Holler VLA art of flying !
Sorry guys , i really feel no more interests for toys like 350 787 330 and really do not like 773 and 388 ... Too many Boring planes for me !
