积压的19架747-8F订单中,有大部分在未来是要交付给UPS的,而UPS对波音公司仍有15架同型号飞机的定期订单。至于波音订单薄中的其他四架飞机,尽管被指定给“身份不明的客户”,但这些飞机很可能最终会成为伏尔加航空集团(Volga-Dnepr Group)旗下某航空运输公司机队中的一部分。去年,在范堡罗航空展(Farnborough Airshow)上,波音公司和伏尔加集团宣布双方敲定了五架747-8F飞机的订单。今年3月份,波音公司向航空资本集团(Aviation Capital Group)交付了订单(64787)中的一架飞机,后者随后将该飞机租赁给了空桥货运航空公司(AirbridgeCargo)公司 [FAT 004793]。 于是,747-8F的未来将何去何从呢?目前,该型号飞机的产量正以每月0.5架的速度增长。如果没有进一步的订单或生产率的变化,747-8F的订单积压量将在2022年底左右枯竭。早在2016年,波音公司就已经在正式的场合暗示了该项目的结束不可避免。该公司在宣布其2016年第二季度的营收结果时表示,“如果我们无法获得足够的订单和/或市场,又无法降低生产和其他方面的风险,我们将能预料到我们会承担额外的、也许是重大的损失,有鉴于此,我们完全有可能决定终止747的生产。”
