Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Boeing Co. said it will deliver the first passenger version of its 747-8, the biggest jumbo jet it’s ever built, to an unidentified VIP customer on Feb. 28.

A delivery ceremony has been scheduled for that day near Boeing’s wide-body-jet plant in Everett, Washington, the Chicago-based company said in an e-mail today.

The 747-8 freighter entered service in late 2011, two years behind schedule. Germany’s Deutsche Lufthansa AG is due to receive the first model intended for commercial passenger service early this year.
