Cargo Nerds only: Boeing 747-8F

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

With the -8 variant soon entering beta, I decided to create this topic for those who like me, can't wait to fly cargo in it.

Let's see which real world cargo operators currently use or will start using the variant.

AirBridgeCargo
Atlas Air
Cargolux
Cathay Pacific Cargo
Korean Cargo
NCA Nippon Cargo Airlines
Silkway West
UPS (from this fall)
Panalpina (Atlas Air)
Polar Air Cargo (Atlas Air)
Qatar Cargo (not confirmed yet)

Sure there was British Airways World Cargo (Global Supply Systems) among the users until they ceased to exist as well as Etihad Cargo and Saudia Cargo but not anymore.

I am hoping for the above 10 operators to be part of the initial release but even if not, most likely it's just a matter of days until repaints appear.

I personally want Panalpina the most and also AirBridgeCargo and Cargolux.

Qatar do have a -8 in their fleet, a pax version though. I'd imagine all of those ,plus more ,will be included.

Just came across an article on AirCargoNews - most organic Avocados we eat here in Europe (but at least in the UK) come onboard the Panalpina 747-8 from Guadalajara and Mexico City (to where they arrive from South America). Another reason to eat avocados then!
