    Scheduled for delivery to Korean Air.

    Boeing Has Likely Built Its Last Commercial 747

    The final passenger airframe of the current generation 747-8i is currently undergoing test flights for the Korean Air. The Seoul-based carrier is one of only three passenger airlines to take delivery of the most recent version of the 747 — Lufthansa and Air China are the other members of this small group.

    True, and that is still a real possibility.

    .....yes, there has been a few shutdowns in flight with two hour flights to a suitable airport. However the odds are getting worse as more and more twin jet flights are added to the long Pacific routes......a matter of time as the luck runs out!
