The 747 had always been defined as a long-range aircraft, but Joe Sutter and the engineers at Boeing were not necessarily locked into that view. Japanese domestic traffic had boomed in the 1960s, and Boeing was looking for a way to accommodate additional passengers at Japan's notoriously overcrowded airports.
