Boeing continues to reject the claims that it would end Boeing 747 production. The US planemaker said that it was continuing to build 747-8s for its customers in its backlog.
The big argument for buying the 747-8F is its load capacity (138 tonnes) and the differential of the tilting nose, which facilitates loading. It is no coincidence that of the 137 units delivered to date in the 747-8 variant, no less than 90 are cargo models.
The last 747 for passengers was delivered in December 2017 and since then no other airline has been interested in ordering the massive four-engine jet.
