While Boeing is in tough competitive play with its competitor Airbus, it is also a major player in the market. As a result of the brisk market for singles alone aircraft from low-cost carrier and national airline operators in China, both firms are increasing output. By 2019, Airbus says it will launch 60 aircraft per year. Next year, Boeing is planning to produce 47 aircraft per months and increase it to 57 in 2019.
Aircraft used by airline companies to displace the Boeing 747-Jumbojet.
Boeing 747 jumpers as airliners are counted. Boeing even acknowledges that the 747's freighter potential lies in the air. In recent years, many 747 carriers have either gone into retirement or made decommissioning schemes for their fleet of jumpers. Airline companies have opted for smaller Airbus and Boeing planes.
It' s the day of the airliner that counts. Once the entry-level Boeing 747 for airline companies around the globe, it is designed to spend its day as a freighter. Boeing estimates that of 42,730 commercial airliners ordered by clients over the next 20 years, only 60 will be similar in dimensions to the Boeing jumpers.
This corresponds to three Boeing 747-8s or Airbus A380s per year. By July, Boeing has only 22 unfulfilled orders for the 747, and all are for the freight version. In the last ten years, Boeing has sold 47 747-8 intercontinental commercial aircraft currently in operation with Air China, Korean Air and Lufthansa.
Korea Air and Lufthansa are operating both the Boeing 747 and the competing A380 Superjumbo. Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Executive Board of the Lufthansa Group, said that the choice to use the 747 instead of smaller planes was linked to the size of the space offered by the aeroplane in its prime cab. "There is no air carrier in the whole wide globe that is selling as many luxury seating units as Lufthansa," Spohr said to us in a recent interviewer.
"If we' re talking about an XL plane, we need 100 first and next generation airliners that no one else has." "That' s why we run the 747-8 on lines where others run the (Boeing) 777," Spohr added. In the past year, both Delta and United Airlines sent their ageing 747 fleet to the junkyard - the first in nearly five years that no U.S. airline will ever carry a passenger in a jumpbo jets.
The smaller and cheaper twins such as the Boeing 777 have taken on the role of the workhorse for the transport of passengers in the sector. Boeing 747-8I listed for 402.9 million dollars, while 747-8F is a few hundred giants more at 403.6 million dollars.
