They are operating three MD-11 freighters out of Brussels into Nigeria and Saudi Arabia. Another one flies from Miami to Chile. I do not believe that any of the DC-10s are still active. There is supposed to be an asset auction in August which may determine the future of the airline.

Word is that WO will be bidding on the Gemini freighters, and working on a LOA with the union to allow the Gemini captains to be WO captains while WO gets their f/o's through upgrade. The Gemini guys would then go to the bottom of the list as f/o's. I am sure there is much more to it, but that's the basics of what I am hearing.
Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever

The flying for Saudia with an MD has been discontinued while flying into S. America out of Miami has increased somewhat. Most of their remaining business, which isn't much, is in and out of Lagos, Nigeria.
Last week there was an MD sitting in Tampa, Florida for at least a couple of days - is it still there or where did it leave for?
I wonder how they're paying their bills with the gross under-utilization of their fleet, and when they plan to shut down?
