The flag carrier will soon to be welcomed to the 747-8 Intercontinental passenger club with the pending delivery of its first copy (above). The company has 10 Super Jumbos on order and will replace their older Boeing 747-400s with new type. The older 747-400s will be phased out by 2017.

    I wonder why LH and KE are the only airlines to order the B748i? It would seem to me that other airlines could utilize them too. I think EK would have if they didn’t sell themselves on the A380. UA should have ordered them along with BA, KLM, DL and Etihad.
