    The first destination for Lufthansa's 747-800 will be IAD (Washington-Dulles). So far, the 747-800 will be based solely out of FRA (Frankfurt-Rhein Main). The 747-800 will be equipped with 386 seats and will also feature Lufthansa's new Business Class product. Lufthansa will take delivery of the aircraft around April 23rd and the first long-haul flight is expected to happen sometime over the summer.

    LH tests new planes, or types of planes intra-Germany first. On 90 min routes like Munich to Hamburg or so.

    It'll be nice when they stop making planes bigger and start making them faster.

    I'd like to be around when we will be beamed across the planet and planes begin to become obsolete.

    Planes won't become obsolete. The passenger planes will be scrapped, but the airshow planes will still be used for entertainment such as air shows and other aerial competitions.

    And I'll be one of the pilots. icon_biggrin.gif

    The Concorde didn't end well because it was too far ahead of its time. Now it's behind its time and the engineers aren't working to rebuild it. That, I think, is sad.

    Paul it's also important to remember that the Concorde also fell victim to other problems as well, mainly the noise. The plane had a very limited market.

    Would Concorde version 2.0 be able to compete in the TransAtlantic market again?

    Who would operate it?

    Delta? BA? Most of the other carriers don't have the money for it.

    It's time you stopped flying around Florida, got a pen out and sketched out some new superjet minus the boom that runs on the smell of an oily rag with a range that can compete with the 787-9.

    Concorde @ 2,140 kmph cruising speed..

    LHR- PEK = 4 hours
    LHR- SYD= 8 hours
    JFK- HKG= 6 hours.

    Get to it Paul! icon_razz.gif
