Do like the LH744.
They should convert the upper deck to just 8 seats with a bed like what LH use to offer.
I believe all business class passengers with fight to either pay or other means to get upgraded to the true Private Jet experience.
All of them now the price of fuel about to esculate again. The 748 can carrry cargo which something that the A380 can never do. LH use to lose tons of money flying FRA-JNB now after switching to B748 it has become a profitable route. QF had to get on their knees and ask EK to save them which would n...Jump to post
Why don't Boeing just mount the engine on top of the wings like the Honda Jet so they won't need to design new landing gears?Jump to post
Premium flyers wants to fly VLAs. They should immediately order or lease 8-10 B748 intercontinental since they already have the freighter version. Offer real first class and premium business service. I know i look for LH or KE 748 service when ever possible. The cost cutting at CX is getting very si...Jump to post

I can't wait to fly the B748 to Johannesburg it will give SAA plenty of thoughts as to buy which VLA if they want to make goods profits!

CA already ordered the B748 so nee for any A380 for the near future as well.Jump to post
LH and Air France is not ordering any more A380s. China Southern lose money on every flight they operate so if you are not subsidized by the state your chance of making money operating such equipment is about nil.Jump to post
This shows how smart LH management is with the order for the B748 intercontinental knowing that only ME3 can afford to fly the A380 at all!!Jump to post
Every knows in South Africa why SAA goeing all Airbus. Paying more for an inferior plane especially on take offs from Johannesburg.!Jump to post

So the B772LR will be the longest range passenger plane is the world?Jump to post
If they truly are. they would have purchased the new B748 passenger planes.Jump to post
