Just a few weeks after our 1,500th 747 was delivered to Lufthansa, we’re getting ready for the next airline to take delivery of the new 747-8 Intercontinental.
The first 747-8 Intercontinental for Air China.
Air China’s first 747-8 recently rolled out of the paint hangar in Everett. Air China has five Intercontinentals on order. This first airplane will be delivered later in the fall.
Air China will become the second airline customer to take delivery of the Intercontinental. They plan to use the airplanes to expand their international routes.
