    ”Now that the 747-8I program has a second blue chip airline on board, I am sure the orders will start rolling in.”

    Second blue chip airline?!! Arik havent even started widebody operations yet! I doubt any airline will be influenced by the actions of Arik air, Their fleet strategy is not exactly consistent.

    That aside, its still positive to see another airline moving on the passenger varient.
