British Airways said on Friday that it would retire its entire fleet of the iconic Boeing (BA) 747 jumbo jets around four years earlier than it had previously planned, citing the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The airline is currently the world’s largest operator of the jet, which is affectionately known as the “queen of the skies.” British Airways said on Friday that the sunsetting of the 747 would allow it to operate more flights on newer, more fuel-efficient aircraft, such as the Airbus 350 and Boeing 787. Earlier this month, reports suggested that Boeing is planning to stop production of the 747 altogether by 2023.
