CLE-SDF UPS 1441 heavy is now an MD-11. I remember this flight being a DC-8/A300. Is this change for good or is it temporary? This is a great addition to CLE!

I always thought the A300 was classified as 'heavy' sorry to hijack your post, but I really wanna know..

It's for good, for now. Replaces the 757 to RKD and A300 to SDF. They now just fly to SDF from Cleveland.

Yep, saw the MD11 equipment last week in CLE myself instead of the usual DC8 and A300...I remember hearing that UPS is trying keep the MD11s on domestic routes due to their dispatch reliability.

The reduction in traffic and retirement of the DC8, at least in STL, has UPS only using a single MD11 flight instead of what use to be 2 DC8's or a A300 and a 757.

Before there were always two or three UPS planes in STL usually some combination of DC-8s and A300s, but the MD-11s began showing up before Christmas and still come regularly as far as I know.

MD-11 carries a little less weight and a little more cube than the A300+757 carry combined. It's close to a perfect substitution in terms of capacity.

They don't have any 777s.

Reliability, or lack thereof? It seems that if they were wanting to shift aircraft onto shorter domestic routes that reliability left something to be desired. Yet other cargo fleets such as FX and LH fly lots of international legs with MD-11. ???



Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.
