SKYLOFT is the name of the new concept integrated into the Boeing 747-8 intercontinental, Seattle”s latest effort to keep the jumbo jet production line going. With the stretched aircraft and its 30 additional main deck seat capability, the manufacturer is offering airlines a chance to extend the upper deck back towards the tail, a concept called Skyloft, providing individual berths to create private rest areas for passengers on long haul flights for up to 40 bunks. An airline can choose if the requirement is for passenger accommodation, lounges, overhead galley, crew rest areas, business centre or a combination. Boeing currently has 62 unfulfilled orders for the 747 including 18 for the 747-8 freighter. Production last year was about one per month. 1,366 747s of all models have been delivered to date.
