When did Cargolux settle their rift with Boeing and take delivery?

Probably when the Qatar guy figured out that there were no suitable replacements available and the next Airbus freighter was going to be available sometime after the second coming. Also they were probably told that it would not be such a big deal to repaint it in Nippon Cargo or Cathay Pacific livery, either which could take delivery tomorrow.

So what aircraft did they deliver? CargoLux said no to the first two 747-8F aircraft. The registration on the aircraft delivered is LX-VCB and I though this was one of the initial two.
geoffmartindale
I believe you're thinking about Atlas Air.

It was definitely Cargolux and there as topic on this forum about it. It was widely reported but exact terms that were used by Cargolux were believed to be on the GE engines and some others not revealed

David, I believe you are right and that goes back to my initial question this morning, WHEN DID THEY SETTLE THE RIFT? It may be like anything else. The refusal to make delivery was on page 1 but the settlent on page 6,lol.

The one yesterday and the one today are the first two. They cleared things up with GE apparently. We in the trenches are not privy to what goes on.

I just know my minor part in this play has been frustrating/rewarding and was proud to watch it come over the Sim center landing at Sea Tac.

Im in the Sim Center cause we aint done yet, Intercon is next.
geoffmartindale
We'll never be done.

It's simply amazing that their press release says absolutely nothing about their tiff.

Why would they...it would be like putting up pics of Tail Hook instead of telling the nice Congresslady that we had a cultural and information exchange with other naval aviators.

No reason why Boeing to air dirty linen. Being retired Boeing guy, I would never release info like that. It would have to be the customer or a whistle blower.

David there are certain issue that need a whistle blown as you are well aware and the FAA are often not too responsive. This airplane has the best pedigree is the business: "The new GEnx-2B67 engines incorporate the latest technologies – such as a composite fan case and blades and a revolutionary turbine – to create double-digit efficiency gains over the engines it replaces." That is the master stroke.
dbrooks84
I would agree with you if the problem with the engines was safety. The only things I have heard dealt with the weight and SFC. It was several percent above contract.
