A thank you goes out to Paine Field Blog for the heads up on this one.


  1. I might be try fly KE from SEA to ICN then to HKG this winter. I heard B748i will fly to HKG on regional route from ICN

  2. The 747-8i and the A340 is truly a beauty. Sorry to break it to the A380 lovers but it's like a fucking whale. 747-8i is the way to go.

  3. I recon Qantas should order 10 747-8i's to replace the 747-400s and 400ER's 
    plus they should get the 777-300ER and some new A330-200s and 300s + the A350-900 and 1000 .

  4. I hear this one's gonna start service to Chicago sometime soon…. if that's the case, I can't wait to see.

  5. +OwnsGermany Finally! The first +대한항공 (Korean Air) 747-8i is out of the factory and flying. This livery looks great on the 747-8i.
