The 747-8 is the newest version of the 747. It is larger than the previous models and has an all-new wing design as well as new-generation engines. It is quite popular as a freighter (747-8F) as there is no other airplane that can accomodate cargo loads as large.

The passenger version is the 747-8I (Intercontinental) and it is not selling well at all because it cannot effectively compete with the large twin-engine transports. It's anyone's guess how long the Intercontinental will survive as a product, but I suspect that even if it hangs on for another few years the 777X will kill it off for good once that plane enters service.

I know what it is. The only carrier I am aware of flying the 8I is LH. Haven't seen many freighters around, but then again I try to stay away from that side of the airport. What's the first flight date on the 777X?

There are more operators using the 747-8I but not many.

Production of the 777-8 and-9 is intended to begin in 2017. So far as I know we have not released the projected dates for for first flight, first delivery, etc. to the general public.

Gee Chris, I was hoping to leave critical path scheduling behind. Have managed multiple critical path schedules for about 40 years, it would be nice for it not to rule my life.

As I said, "Use Boat" is the carrot. My critical path is pretty short, everything else can be easily timed to coincide with shore days.
