Can someone please direct me to a listing of all aircraft flying within the domestic DHL network? I'm interested in seeing how many & what types (probably mostly 727s, DC-9s, and a few 767s?). I know DHL has a ton of aircraft worldwide, but I'm specifically interested in what's in this country (i.e. total after merger with Airborne).

Thanks!

Chris

I know that DHL flies a couple of DC9s into PIT. As far as how many of each aircraft they have and where they fly to, I could not tell ya


Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

With respect to the aircraft operated by ABX Air for DHL:

"At March 31, 2006, the Company’s operating fleet consisted of 112 aircraft, including 29 Boeing 767, 70 McDonnell Douglas DC-9 and 13 McDonnell Douglas DC-8 aircraft." http://www.abxair.com/ir/10q2006q1.PDF

Some of those 767s, and some of the 767s coming aboard (7 more, I believe), will be used for charter service to carriers other than DHL. The DC8s are with the original engines (-60s). There is a rumour on the stock message board that some of the DC8s will be retired pretty soon, which may or may not make sense since it appears from the latest 10Q that they just spent $6 million or so to heavy-check 6 of those aircraft.

AStar, the other carrier, doesn't file 10Qs because it's not a publicly-traded company. It's web site may therefore be out of date, but it says that they fly 42 aircraft: 26 727s, 9 DC8s (the ones with the CFM re-engining: -70s), and 7 A300-B4-200Fs. http://www.astaraircargo.com/about/fleetfacts.html

Hope this helps.

Quoting Wjcandee (Reply 5):
70 McDonnell Douglas DC-9

They have only 50 DC-9 left in service and about 20 of the wear DHL colors.

I was just quoting from the report they filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, which they will go to jail if they are lying on. Although it's possible that they removed 20 DC9 from service in the 2 months since the effective date of that report, I think we would have heard on the Yahoo board if they had done so?

What is your source for the number "50" rather than "70"?

They phase-out about twenty DC-9 in the last months.

My source? It's allways our homepage...

That picture of the 727 (N750DH) was taken here at Manchester (New Hampshire) a little bit ago. Interestingly, for a project I'm doing the folks at DHL let me on the apron and into N751DH last week. Before I hear a chorus of 'OH NO!!! ILLEGAL!!!', I was very well chaperoned and supervised. It was pretty cool to be there as this 727-200 came in from Allentown, PA with its freight and chat with the crew and see the plane & cockpit.

Well...the funny thing is that as of May 9, 2006, they confirmed that they had the same number of in-service aircraft that they had on 3/31/06, 112 aircraft. http://www.abxair.com/ir/index.html That included 70 DC9s. So either this all happened in the last 3 weeks, or your homepage is mistaken.

You're of course a knowledgeable a.net member, so I will investigate further. But for now, that just doesn't seem right. Indeed, the big debate among investors right now is how long the DC8s are going to keep flying.
