Boeing 747 Rework

I would love the 747 family too be reworked. Especially the fuel problem on the 747-8.

I hope you’re right! Hopefully we get a 747 rework before all the passenger variants are retired.

The quality of reworks have gone up with each one… who knows we may get something on a 747 rework that we haven’t seen on the 777

Its also has terrible physics. Nose keeps pointing up and therefore uses a lot of fuel to maintain speed.

Terrible everything really. On the topic of physics, you can’t decrab after touchdown so you’ll just run right off the runway, pretty frustrating.

Yeah, I made a flight MMMX-LFPG

It was 10 hours and my 747 have the enough fuel, fuel for 15 hours, but the fuel consumption was so high by the angle then when I was close to Europe the plane suddenly run out of fuel and make me crash in the ocean, and my payload and passengers was good, not heavy

But yea the nose point too high always

Yeah the 747s fuel burn calculations are broken. I always take 30-40 tons more than simbrief tells me to. And even then I sometimes run out of fuel.

We need as many votes as we can get, thanks a lot.

This is why I’ve flat out stopped flying the 747. I love the Queen of the Skies but can’t bear to fly it in such a desolate condition.

If it was to be reworked it would be one of the most popular aircraft on Infinite flight. If not the most popular. I would definitely use it far more often.

The only way they were profitable was the premium and business seats. Less were gonna be sold so each aircraft was gonna loose money

I made a sendoff event for the BA 747. This is so sad, so please join me in giving them a proper sendoff!

The number of reasons for a 747 rework only increase and increase. Hope LH still has the heart to keep their -400’s, and BA was always meant to be the last airline to retire them too.
