747s—The last passenger

In 2017, Boeing delivered 14 747s, including the what is very likely the last passenger 747 ever delivered to a commercial airline. On 31 July, Korean Air took delivery of HL7644 from Paine Field in Everett, Washington, marking the probable end of passenger 747 deliveries. During 2017, Boeing also delivered two not-taken-up 747-8I airframes to the United States Air Force for use as the next presidential aircraft.

On the cargo side, UPS Airlines and Qatar Airways Cargo joined the 747-8F operator list, taking 3 and 2 new aircraft respectively.
