BA moving away from B747-400?

Recommended Posts

In today's ATW Daily News at http://www.atwonline.com/news/story.html?storyID=10344 BA is reported to have ordered 12 A380s and 24 787s to replace 20 747-400s. Willie Walsh is quoted as saying that the A350 XWB, 777-300ER and 787-10 are under consideration to replace the remaining 747-400s.Is this likely to doom the 747-8? Perhaps we shall see A380s and 787s from PMDG in the fullness of time? ;-)Cheers,


Cheers, Richard

hmm, personally, i love boeing....Second, the A380, although excellent in design, is flawed only in the fact that, it is only cost effective to fly it with LONG haul flights.... the 787, however, is much more user friendly. allowing versatility we've seen most commonly with the 757, flying everything from trans Atlantic, or Raleigh to Atlanta flights.... i think (and i said "I") that the A380 will be a bust in the long run.....
