I have read that the 747-8F entered service in October 2011, almost eight months ahead of the passenger version (747-8I).

Anyone know why this is?



1 Answer 1


The launch customers for the 747-8 were Cargolux and Nippon Cargo Airlines, both air freight operators who wanted the 747-8F. The first orders for the 747-8I didn't materialize until several months later.
