I'm Leaving, On a 748.

My company is sending me back to Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress March 2-5 this year, and I've happily booked my first 747-8I ride on Lufthansa out of Los Angeles. Premium Economy. Good gosh, airfare is expensive! But fortunately this is all covered.

There will be pictures, believe you me! I'm very excited to finally get to fly in a 748I.

Wrong Part 1 (of ? Parts)

Lufthansa's line 1513 RC038 D-ABYT is getting the "retro" livery (link in German). I had predicted D-ABYE would get it. Oh well, I still have a chance at being right about the rest... Pics below.

And in other melancholy news, line 1514 RC039 D-ABYU rolled out last night. She's the final Lufthansa 747-8I to be built. As of now...

Apparently Boeing is going around the CEO and putting the offer to his boss. Being that it's a rumor, the details are sparse right now. Here's a mock up of what an Emirates 748 might look like:
