The 747-400 is regarded as a highly reliable and proven performer in the air thanks to its innovative engineering enhancements over previous 747 models. This includes the addition of winglets, new flight decks and new avionics - making it the world’s fastest commercial jetliner! One of the most notable features on this iconic aircraft was the winglet enhancements - which provide the effect of having an even greater wingspan without outgrowing the standard airport slot. Consequently, the wingtip extension and winglet offer a fuel mileage improvement of about 3 percent, which during the lifespan of an airplane amounts to considerable savings!
The 747-400 not only demarcated fast-travel, but also epitomised luxury travel too and was the first aircraft to do so - with spacious interior, leaving it with such an excess of floor space that airlines carved out room for passenger lounges; on some planes, even coach passengers could avail themselves of this luxury perk. Adding to the allure was that it was the first commercial airliner with two aisles. The 747 was also the first plane to have overhead bins; prior to that, aeroplanes featured an "open hat rack," like those found on buses and trains.
Despite the aircraft's retired status, the nostalgia will still cling to the 747. Indeed, there will never be a plane like it, it is a throwback to a time when air travel was perceived to be more gracious and glamorous
