Apparently I missed the rather significant news on Tuesday that the Boeing 747-8i, the passenger version of the company’s largest aircraft, is now in service. The very first, delivered to a private customer with a Qatari registration, took flight as an unmarked white behemoth on the 28th, headed from Paine Field to Wichita where it was actually delivered to the customer.
Next up is the delivery of the first to a commercial carrier. That will be this aircraft heading to Lufthansa, though the date of that delivery is yet to be publicly announced.
