The B747 is on the way out - but the 747 is still the most elegant and graceful jumbo aircraft and still truly be called the Queen of the Sky - something that cant be said of the A380. With more over 1,000 buit is something again that the A380 will never be ale to match.

I reckon Airbus A380 will not be a good freighter like the B747s will. The B747's design allowed it to swallow the cargo from the mouth and pass it out at the back end....
The A380 will not be able to do this feat. They will have to swallow the cargo sideways and then comes to a question whether it can fill out both decks. Or you can fill it out with a single deck with surplus space left at top deck. It is a horrible freighter design. Airbus got their maths and thinking wrong again!
The 747 will probably live longer than the A380s, albeit not in the form of passenger model.
