What Is The Best Jet To Replace 747s?

Sat Feb 07, 2009 8:28 pm

Over the years we have seen 747s being replace by newer jetliners. There were many airlines that replaced their 747s with A346 and a large amount of airlines are replacing their 747s with 77W. QF replace some of their 747 routes with A380. So what a/c you like best, to replace the queen of the skies.


I like the ideal of big being replace by bigger, so I chose the A380.

I can't vouch for the A380, haven't been on one yet, but both the A346 and 773 are great 747 replacements. I'd give the A346 a slight advantage because with four engines it doesn't have to worry about ETOPS. I admit, i also like the underfloor lavs on the A346, great touch. I suppose if i ran an airline, i'd probably have a mix, the A346 for transpac and the 773 for Europe.
Yes, I'd like to see airbus go under so Boeing can have their customers!
