✈ D-ABYK (5 years old) named rheinland-pfalz in old livery here on approach to SBGL.
Lufthansa was the launch customer of the B747-8I (intercontinental is the name version for passenger, to differentiate with freighter) and the biggest operator of the type with 19 units. The airline use the type mainly on North American routes, and Sao Paolo/ Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires, where the A340 of the german airline doesn’t have enough capacity and the A380 too much. ➡The B747-8 has been available since 2012, is stretched version of the B747-400 of almost 6 metres (as we can see the upper deck is longer than any previous versions) and the wings completey redesigned (thicker allowing bigger fuel tanks and with 777-type winglets). The engines are new too as we can see the chevron-toothed exhaust type of the engine, the interior has been redesigned like the B787, however the great majority of the 747 elements are carried-over from previous generations (B747-300, B747-200 and B747-400).➡ The type is only used by 4 airlines for passengers, with a total of 42 aircrafts, making it this the end of the B747 era. Most of the airline don’t see the need of the B747 anymore, as the A380 can carry more passenger for a similar fuel consumption and despite what is marketed by Boeing, the 777 is seen as replacing totally the B747. #avgeek#planefan#aircraft#planes#avions#flightsimulator#fsxpictures#fsx#planelovers#airlines#compagniesaeriennes#photosavions#planesspotting#avporn#aviation#travel#voyage#aviones#instaplanes#pilot#aviation#planesdailyairport takeoff #landing#aviationgeek
