As a result, the number of commercial airliners is shifting towards smaller, more fuel-efficient planes such as the 777X and 787 Dreamliner. There is, however, the possibility that the 747 may survive through private property and private plane charters for officials and leaders or as a freighter. Boeing 747, a large volume four -engine glider, is one of the most popular commercial airliners of all times, known by the loving epithet "Jumbo Jet".
used by NASA and the U.S. Army, it played in more than 300 feature length motion pictures, among them those in German TV's ''Die Hard''. However, it will perhaps best be recalled as Air Force One, the private plane of the President of the United States. It was in this capacity that the 747 established a new benchmark in private aircraft.
However, the striking airplane, which has a prominent "hump" due to the top decks, has lost some of its appeal in recent years. Boeing heralded the halving of manufacturing in September 2015 and in July 2016 warning of loss of production. This year Delta and United, the last two US carriers to operate 747s, announce that they will remove the plane from their fleets by the end of 2017.
Boeing's prognosis for the next 20 years assumes that carriers will use more economical twin-engine jet engines on long-haul routes. These include airplanes such as the 777X and 787 Dreamliner. It is also designing a mid-range aeroplane to supersede the 737 MAX 9 in response to a growing preference for smaller and more fuel-efficient aeroplanes.
In addition to the question of propellant economy, changes in flying habits are also a cause of the sinking of the 747. Routing systems have evolved so that smaller airplanes can directly travel to smaller airfields, reducing the need for large airplanes flying through huge hub heights. Boeing's position is in sharp contradiction to that of Airbus, the producer of the 747's main rival, the A380.
At the Paris Air Show on 19 June, Airbus heralded improvements to the Airbus Airbus A380 in the hope of reviving the market. That is despite the difficult years for the Airbus GAoliath, during which Forbes put its Airbus 380 programme on "death watch" in June 2016. Despite Airbus' home lead, Boeing prevailed over its main rival in France, winning 326 net new orders and 326 undertakings for Boeing 571.
As the 747 s gradually sink, it is another major shock for Southern California's importance in the production of large planes. A Boeing regional distributor is a trunk panels factory in the municipality of Aawthorne. However, the 747's outlook contains two rays of hope. In the near term, the plane will retain its most prominent Air Force One status as President Donald Trump signs a new agreement with Boeing in January 2017.
This 747 was previously used as a private plane by US President George H. W. Bush (who chose it as Air Force One), Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Moreover, the Boeing 747 as a freighter also faces a brighter bright ahead, where its huge size is a decisive asset.
Boeing 747 Dreamlifter, also known as Boeing 747-400 Large Freighter, has the biggest freight capacity in the whole wide area. In 2016 UPS ordered 14 Boeing 747-8 freighter ships and placed an order for an additional 14 options. The 400-seater, which will be Boeing's biggest plane, is scheduled to make its début in 2020.
In order to regain the romanticism of flight in the glorious years of the Boeing 747 mid-century, why not charter a private plane? Every detail is taken care of, giving you the opportunity to unwind, work or entertain in your luxury private aircraft.
