Absolute tonnage wise, UPS and FedEx are the biggest, but on terms of FTKs (freight-tonne kilometers) both LH and KE are in the top 5 (I think #1 and #2 respectively, although I don't have the info in front of me).
As for the announcement, it's good to see all of the hard work paying off. Now let's see if they do anything for those of us making them #1....
is that a light at the end of the tunnel or just a train?

KE is second to LH in terms of cargo hauling for a passenger airline. I work for KE but I work in the passenger sales side. With that being said, we will change our departure time out of DFW from nighttime to daytime beginning on April 1, 2003. The new flight schedules have been loaded into all CRS systems.
