I'm not sure what the year of introduction has to do with anything. If it did, the airlines should just retire the 737 (introduced in 1968), because, gosh, look what cars looked like back then.

A new 747-8 isn't as fuel efficient as the planes replacing it to be sure, but it would still vastly out-perform a introductory model 747-100.
