Why do so many people think the 747 was such a big cash cow for Boeing in the 1980s and 90s? John Newhouse, in his book "Boeing versus Airbus" points out that the 767-300ER was the cash cow back then.

RE: Why So Few Orders Of The 748-I?

Does the 748i offer a significant CASM benefit over the 77W? I thought I read somewhere that they were pretty close, and therefore the only good 748i markets are ones where there's too much demand to fill a 77W.

LH had a somewhat perplexing set of livery changes in the 1960s, does anyone know when and why they changed the font first and then the entire scheme? In the early 1960s, they started with the yellow and blue stripe: <img border=0 src="http://www.airliners.net/photo/Lufthansa/Boeing-707-458/1470215/...

I've done a few photo searches, but can't find a conclusive answer to this question. I know they removed the ventral fins when they changed the flaps to the -300C standard, but does anybody know in which year this occurred? For example, l/n 333 was delivered as D-ABOS in 1962 with the fin, and was r...
