  • Aircraft type question

    Lets start with a Boeing 747:

    Boeing 747-406F(ER)
    Boeing 747-412F (SCD)
    Boeing 747-446/BCF

    Boeing 747-8HVF

    I know what a -400 and a -8 is. F usually is Freight, M is combi, as a lot can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_747

    But is there any site that explains the: 406, 412, 446, HVF etc...?
    Or if anyone could explain?


    ... and does it work the same for Airbus?

    I know that atleast for Airbus the numbers stand for which type of engine the aircraft has.

    For example:
    A320-231 IAE Model V2500-A1
    A320-232 IAE Model V2527-A5

    Specific list for the A320 family can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A320_family

    I'm not sure about Boeing.

      For Boeing, I think it's the 'customer code'

      As an example, a B747-436 would be a Boeing 747-400 configured for customer code 36, which is British Airways
      A Ryanair B737-800 would be a B737-8AS

      By 'configured' I mean things like seat upholstery, cabin decor etc

      Does that help at all?
