The Boeing 747 first entered service in 1969 and some say is known for democratizing air travel because it was effective at lowering the cost of long haul travel due to the capacity of the plane.
Well, it’s more than 40 years later and Boeing is still taking orders for the 747-800 and 747-8F freighters. But could the most recent order for the 747-800 be the last one and a way for a graceful exit for Boeing to shut down production?
Could This Be The Last Boeing 747 Customer?
According to this Bloomberg article, the most recent order Boeing received was awarded by the Pentagon for the 747-800 to be the new Air Force One to replace the aging 747-200’s. According to the article, Boeing indicated they are still seeking orders, which they are. But could this be the last order for the 747? What do you think?
