Boeing (BA -4.5%) hits a new setback after Atlas Air Worldwide (AAWW) cancels orders for three new 747-8 jumbo-jet freighters due to “lengthy delays and performance considerations.” After a two-year delay in completing the plane, the first few 747-8s Boeing made may not meet performance guarantees.

    The B747 is the premier aircraft in the long haul air freight business. What are they going to replace it with? Airbus A380F? Please...

     

    I think that Atlas is trying to 'make a better deal', because of the series of delays in roll out. Or their near term outlook for global shipping is bleak.

    You don't know where I live, so save the personal attacks for someone you know. Last I read FEDEX cancelled their order for 10 A380-800F aircraft in 2006 and ordered 15 B777F aircraft.
