    Default What´s the difference between 747-200SUD and 747-300???

    Can anyone please tell me what´s the difference between the 747-200SUD and the 747-300?

    I believe that 747-200SUD wasn´t made in line production and I´m think that the airlines that have or had, asked for a modification in Upper Deck. That´s it? Isn´t it more expensive than simply change one 747-200 for a -300?

    747-200SUD, a 747-200 built, rolled out and delivered as a 200 to its original operator, which had it later modified into a SUD by extending the upper bump and anything associated. Modification was either conducted at operator's maintenance if approved by Boeing and the FAA.
    Live exemples operated in France are
    747-200B/SUD/SCDs F-BTDG and F-BTDH originally built as 200B/SCDs
    and delivered new to UTA, which conducted the transformation at its own workshops. Having outlived UTA, these aircrafts keep flying under AF c/s.
    To reply another question, the acronym SCD stands for Side Cargo Doors
    as these aircrafts are also combi.
    747-300s were built, rolled out and delivered as such straight from Boeing
    UTA got three original Combis 300/SCDs namely F-GDUA, F-GETA and F-GETB. GDUA was destroyed by fire while undergoing a check. Still alive, Tango-Alpha and Tango-Bravo have been serving AF since UTA was absorbed.

    it was to expensive for airliners like KLM to buy 747-300's instead of building 200;s to 200SUD's (because they had them a lot). it was a major succes for KLM and they just retired theire the last 747-200SUD after a lot of years at KLM

    Sometimes it is (was) also called EUD= Extended Upper Deck, but it's the same thing.

    I knew what is a 747-200SUD plane. I didn't know what does "SUD" stand for. Now I know. That's it. Big deal.
