I no nothing! If I remember correctly they are getting 13! I thought though 10 were from JAL so if 5 are coming from Brazil and 10 from JAL that's 15 so maybe they aren't geeting all of JAL's. Who know's?

Currently UPS is operating 3 MD-11's, ex-Vasp. There are 2 more in Singapore being converted to freighters, ex-Varig; these will be in operation this fall. They have contacts for 12 more (4 a year for 3 years); 10 of these will be ex-JAL. The Vasp and Varig airplanes are GE powered; the JAL's are P&WA powered.

The Vasp & Varig Md-11 have the CF6-80-c2d1f GE's and while not the same but UPS' 767 have the CF6-80c2b7f GE power which has been a good engine for the 767. UPS Would like more GE powered MD'11's but the GE powered ones would take longer to acquire. Varig has 14 GE powered MD-11's right now that will more than likely be N255UP-269UP. The JAL birds are P&W 4460 and they are becoming available now. One is in Singapore now being converted along with an Ex Varig MD-11. The JAL PW MD-11 arrived in Singapore in early June. The Varig arrived in early July. Both should be in fleet by Peak season and flying in Asia.
The Swiss MD-11's are not a consideration at this point.
