Obviously, on Xbox, we are limited to what we can obtain for Airliners.
Given that, I was wondering if anyone else favors the 747 over all the others. There is something about the cockpit, the two-tone café and brown interior, the fact that I get to use all four of my Boeing TCA throttles and knowing I’m piloting this big, big aircraft that sort of makes my heart swoon.
I remember the first time I flew on one and I thought it was the coolest.
I’d love to see this aircraft get some more love from the developers (some oil pressure would be a welcome start!).
Finally someone noticed the amenities of the 747. Especially the comfy carpet and the cozy seats that is fitting perfectly in the two-tone interior. The uniqué menu-bar style turbine setting indicators on the screen.
A true connaisseur knows to enjoy the 747
But I have good news, the 777 has a very similar cockpit, it almost looks like a Jumbo Jet cockpit but spiced up with some funky neon-green lighting at night.
And there will be a PMDG 777 soon™.
And I have heard rumors that the Boeing 747 has a basement below the cockpit that can be accessed via a small manhole. If you bring your pet wombat in the cockpit on Wombat Day it will find a species-appropriate natural habitat down there, just like a real burrow!
Lufthansa LH1158 from EDDF (Frankfurt) to LEPA (Palma de Mallorca) was actually a 2h flight operated in summer using 747-8i D-ABYT (retro livery) cause of high demand after COVID restrictions were lifted
It’s especially funny as LEPA does not offer equipment for handling such a large aircraft so they had to park somewhere on the apron and deboard/board using stairs.
I absolutely love the 747 ,not so much the 800 though.My favourites were the 100/200 back in the day when I was involved with them,now that is what I call a real cockpit! .l do hope if it is made for msfs one day and we on Xbox also get a look in ,the only other detailed one I remember was Ready For Pushback 747 which was very complex in its day.I liked how the RFP model was always looking for more engine power,the msfs -800 has too much?
