I'm curious, How many 747-100s do UPS have? Do they have any plans to get rid of them? What will UPS replace them with?

I believe they currently have around ten 100's and eight 200's.

Not sure about their retirement though. Hopefully not soon.

The 747-100Fs are being retired one by one already, the first being the 32 year old ex-Pan Am-Birds. There was a post a few weeks back about two being retired at the end of 2002, N681UP being one of them. But I don´t know until when the rest of these very old birds are leaving. All the ex-AA 747-123s are still going strong. And they´ve been built back in 1970.

In the last years UPS aquired 747-200Fs one by one. Maybe they keep doing that, but I could also see them being a possible buyer of older 747-400s for SF-modification later.
But there are definitely no published plans about what´s going on at UPS in this matter.

Btw, Evergreen is in the same situation, their average fleet-age is even higher.

UPS currently operates 16 747s, 9 -100s and 6 -200s. Actually the ex-AA -100s are being retired before the ex Pan Am -100s. N671UP and N674UP, both ex AA -100s were placed into storage at ROW last month. N527UP was returned to the lessor. The latest retirement plan that I heard was all the -100s would be gone by 2005, with the ex Pan Am planes being the last ones to go and the -200s being returned to the lessor when it's lease expires, with the four owned by UPS, (N520-23UP), being retired in 2007.

I tried to check the UPS website for some info about which routes they deploy their 747s on. I was not successful. Could someone please help me with this info.

Browntailwhale,
thanks for the info. Interesting and irritating UPS has a retirement plan up to 2007 but no plans for replacements.

Browntailwhale,

I heard a long while ago that UPS was in talks with United about buying some of their 744s. Is that deal no longer under consideration?

UPS is looking into replacements for the current fleet of 747s. Senior management has stated in a pilot group meeting a couple of months ago that UPS has narrowed the choices to 3 types, the 747-400F, A340-600F, 777-300F. The last two types do not exist yet. Management said they would like to have the new plane in service by 2007. The latest rumor, relayed by a management pilot, is that at least two management pilots went to Boeing and recieved 777 type ratings. This leads me to believe that the 777-300F is a very real possibility because there is no way UPS would send a couple of managers to get 777 type ratings just for the heck of it.
