Just out of curiosity, how much above normal traffic is that? Also, what types are being used? If this strike goes on much longer (like that last one that lasted 100 days) how many more flights could be added?

Hi,

The non standars are the Southern Air's and the Kalitta's. NW are adding new services to Hong Kong and so are UPS.

Southern Air = 742F
Atlas Air = 742F.743F & 744F
UPS = 763F, 741F, 742F & MD11F
Cathay = 742F & 744F
Kalitta = 742F
Northworst = 742F
Fedex = MD11F & 742F
World = MD11F

I've heard that NW's air cargo division is a big moneymaker for that airline. I wonder has NW seriously looked at buying the A380-800F.

That would be great, they could have them done up to look like the 742F's, you know horrible and crappy looking !!

But at least they would de-throne AA as the only operator of bare metal Airbuses.  Smile

And 5 (possibly more because we don't know where the ANC-USA routes are going) of the 13 flights are headed to NYC! That's good news for us.
