Boeing 747-8 merupakan saingan kepada Airbus A-380...?
Boeing, the US aerospace giant, has unveiled its 747-8 Intercontinental, a longer and more fuel efficient update of its emblematic jumbo jet, which it hopes will compete with the Airbus A-380.
The plane can carry 467 passengers, 51 more than the current 747, and is designed for long haul routes.
So far, Boeing has only 33 orders for the passenger version of the new plane, including from Lufthansa and Korean Air, and 74 orders for the freight version.
The 747-8 keeps its predecessor's humped shape, but is longer to allow for more seats and cargo space.
"Of all the airplanes that we've built, there is one that is identified more closely with Boeing than any other, and that's the 747," said James Albaugh, head of Boeing's commercial airplane unit.
