After checking the latest Air Cargo Online, some interesting news:

- Transmile (Malaysia) wants to add two MD-11F and 2 727-200F to its fleet next year. I´m a bit surprised about the MD-11F as I thought that there is no equipment available.

- MAS Kargo has not been able to source A300Fs due to unavailability of frames.

- Tampa Cargo has unsuccessfully tried to source additional B767Fs, and is not looking to get one B757-200F to replace their DC-8F

- LAN Chile apparently still has to decide if they take their two B767 deliveries this year as freighters or just one freighter and one pax version

MD-11F and 2 727-200F

Second hand.
But how the f... is it still economical to fly 727? It burns around 500 than competition

Really? Never thought about that one... no, seriously, the second-hand market for MD-11Fs is known to be extremly tight, and ost of the pax MD-11s have been converted by now with only very few left in the market. Thus I´m a bit surprised that they think that they are able to source them.

Well, which replacement is available? The B757-200F and the B737-400F, at max. Both a re far younger, and are likely to attract quite a higher leasing rate compared to the 727-200F. And if you need the 722F only a couple of hours (don´t how much they are utilitzed) a day, it should be cheaper to spend money on variable costs (=fuel) then to have higher fixed costs (leasing rate).
