    La scelta del 748 come prossimo Air Force One è ormai ufficiale e avviata: http://www.af.mil/News/ArticleDispla...force-one.aspx

    Boeing, Russian Firm Said Near $4 Billion Deal to Save 747

    Boeing Co. is nearing a $4 billion deal with Russia’s largest air-freight company that would help extend the life of the iconic, hump-nosed 747 jumbo jet amid waning demand for four-engine aircraft, people close to the transaction said.


    The U.S. planemaker is in advanced talks with AirBridgeCargo Airlines and its Moscow-based parent, Volga-Dnepr Group, to convert a year-old commitment into more than 10 firm orders for 747-8 freighters, two of the people said. The agreement could be announced as soon as the Farnborough Airshow next month in England, according to four people briefed on the deal, who asked not to be identified because the talks are confidential.
    The deal would provide a crucial lifeline for the “Queen of the Skies” as Boeing tries to preserve production until the air-cargo market revives or shipping companies start to replace aging wide-body fleets. The 747 freighter, prized for a hinged nose that allows large cargo to be loaded at the front, is Boeing’s second-most expensive commercial jet, with a list price of $379.1 million. Buyers typically negotiate discounts.
    Converting commitments to firm orders starts the process of allocating manufacturing resources and production slots to build the planes.
    Boeing rose 2.6 percent to $133.13 at 9:37 a.m. in New York. The gain was the biggest in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which climbed 1.4 percent in a global rally fueled by signs that the campaign to keep the U.K. in the Europe Union was gaining strength.
    A representative of Volga-Dnepr declined to comment on the talks, but said the airline plans to take all 20 jumbos it committed to last year. A Boeing spokesman declined to comment.

    Airline Shift

    Sales have dwindled for Boeing’s four-engine 747 and the Airbus Group SE A380 superjumbo jetliner as airlines have shifted long-range travel to more-efficient twin-engine models like Boeing’s 777. Boeing had just 22 unfilled orders for the 747 through May, according to its website. The planemaker halved annual output of its largest commercial jet to six planes in January, citing declining sales.
    The potential Russian savior for the 747 -- which brought long-range travel to the mass consumer market when it was introduced by Pan American World Airways in 1970 -- isn’t just a Boeing customer. Volga-Dnepr also transports large aircraft segments for Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner from suppliers to the planemaker’s factories.

    ‘White Tails’

    At the Paris Air Show last June, Volga-Dnepr signed a memorandum of understanding to buy 20 of the 747-8 freighter. The shipping company took delivery in November of the first two aircraft, so-called white tails built for other customers whose orders fell through.
    The Russian freight hauler confirmed it is the unidentified buyer for two of the four jumbo freighter orders Boeing recorded in March, saying the planes will be delivered later this year. The first of those two 747s has been repainted with the livery of CargoLogicAir Ltd., a Volga-Dnepr subsidiary.

    Turkish Airlines negotiates with Boeing for Super Jumbo Jets

    DAILY SABAH
    ISTANBUL
    Published
    September 7, 2017

    Turkish Airlines (THY) is reported to have initiated talks with the U.S. aerospace company Boeing for the purchase of eight 747-8i, also known as the Super Jumbo Jet.

    According to a report by Turkish daily Hürriyet, THY plans to bring Boeing's super jumbo jets to its fleet through financial leasing and employ them for long-haul flights.

    If the $3 billion purchase is finalized, the national flagship carrier will reduce the number of flights to one to destinations where the airliner flies more than once per day. For routes with three flights a day, the company will fly twice with the 747-8i and another flight will be with the Boeing 777-300ER. Moreover, the purchase will also lead to the rebirth of the four-engine 747 Jumbo, whose manufacture has been decreased.

    A special cabin design for THY will be introduced in the aircraft whose seat capacity can rise to 410 in three classes.

    The price that the world's largest aerospace company Boeing offered to THY is reported to be so affordable that no other company has offered the airliner so far. The standard-equipped price of the aircraft is $386.8 million.

    U.S.-based manufacturer Boeing started working on the new model of 747 Jumbo Jet in 2008, which the company had since 1969. The new model has a longer body, and the wing and motor technology was derived from Boeing's composite body 787.

    After the cargo aircraft 747-8F made its first flight in February 2010, the passenger model 747-8i flew for the first time in March 2011. The letter "i" in the name of the model represents "intercontinental" flight.

    U.S. presidential planes, known as Air Force One, are also 747-8i. Boeing has taken 133 aircraft offers in total, 45 passenger aircrafts and 88 for cargo flights.

    Qatar Airways Announce Order for Two 747-8 Freighters and Four 777-300ERs

    EVERETT, Wash., Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Qatar Airways announced an order today for two 747-8 Freighters and four 777-300ERs (Extended Range), valued at $2.16 billion at list prices.
    The orders were previously unidentified on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website.
    The airline also received the first of its 747-8 Freighters at a delivery ceremony attended by His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive and Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Kevin McAllister.
    "The addition of our very first 747-8 Freighter is a significant moment for our Cargo division, and a welcome addition to our 20-strong cargo fleet of wide-body aircraft," said His Excellency Mr. Al Baker. "As the world's third-largest cargo operator, Qatar Airways continues to invest in fleet expansion, with a second 747-8F due to be delivered in November. This reflects our confidence in Boeing to continue to deliver an outstanding product that meets our exacting standards. We expect no less than perfection, and we are confident that Boeing will continue to deliver that."
    Today's announcement is the latest milestone in Qatar Airways' relationship with Boeing. The carrier became a launch customer for the 777X in 2013, was the first to operate the 787 in the Middle East and has 20 737 MAX airplanes on order.
    "We are proud of our strong, enduring and growing partnership with Qatar Airways and we truly appreciate the value its business has brought to Boeing, its employees, suppliers and our communities," McAllister said. "As one of the world's largest international cargo carriers, it is heartening that Qatar Airways has selected the 747-8 Freighter to meet the needs of its growing cargo operations and to see the important role the 777-300ER continues to play in its long-haul fleet."

    Qatar Airways outlines cargo ambitions

    Qatar Airways aims to be the world's top international cargo airline, declared chief executive Akbar Al Baker after taking delivery of the airline's first Boeing 747-8 Freighter.

    "I'm sure you know I don't like to be number two or number three," he said at a 25 September press conference at Boeing's delivery centre in Everett, Washington.
    A blockade by neighbouring states has only boosted Qatar Cargo's business, argues Al Baker. Since the blockade began in June, the airline has hauled huge amounts of fresh foods, medical supplies and other affected goods. Rather than stumbling, the airline's cargo business grew by 160% in the wake of the embargo, he says.
    The Oneworld carrier's chief executive Akbar Al Baker hinted during a 25 September press conference that the airline could potentially order a third 747-8F, citing strong demand in its cargo business.
    "We've already sold the capacity of two 747-8Fs," says Al Baker, adding that the airline could perhaps order a third.
    While Al Baker acknowledges that the airline has been negatively impacted by the ongoing blockade against Qatar, he says that the diplomatic rift "has quite the opposite impact" on the airline's cargo business, with cargo volumes more than doubling.
    "We were the bridge during the blockade," says Al Baker. "These two additional 747 freighters is witness to our perseverance." FG

    Sinceramente con la livrea turca non mi piace un granchè. Per il resto il B747 è sempre il B747.
