How many B732 Cargo operators are in service & secondly how many have Passenger converted Freighter NOT B737-200C or -200QCs.
In India We have Blue Dart Aviation with 5 Passenger converted Freighters connecting Chennai,Bangalore,Mumbai,New Delhi,Kolkata & Hyderabad.They are doing quite well too.

Federal express had just a handful in the early years as the 727s started coming in... Their concept was to go pax during the day and cargo at night,but the a/c just didnt fit the mold....Now I hear they have some new 737 on order so i dont know what they are going to replace if its the caravans on expanding routes, or the older 727s... They are getting them in so fast over here some dc-10 or md-10 as they call them are still in the united gray and blue scheme...
i can see for 80 miles

Were the Fedex B732s Passenger aircraft that were Cargo converted or Were they Original B737-200C & B737-200QC.I think it would be the latter as your descripton of their concept of flying Pax in day & Cargo at Nights.That suits the B737-200QC fine.

Dont know about straight freighters; but I know the -200Combis can be operated in all-freight configurations, and from what I have heard they can do quite well with that configuration, so Id imagine a pure frieghter would do just as well.

One noticable difference is the Main cargo door location which is more forward in a B732C & B732QC.Also the Door Operating System differs.

The Fed-Ex planes are not new orders, rather they want to buy used 733s and 734s for F conversion. WN's 733s have been though of as candidates because of the quality of WN's MX, but WN is so short of aircraft right now, that they are actually looking to buy older 737s as a stop gap.

Aloha's 4 -200QCs also are currently used for cargo ops only. After flying all night, 3 of the 4 sit waiting for night while the 4th flies day cargo flights. However, if they really need a pax aircraft they can have their seats reinstalled.

What about Alaska Airlines? Don't they operate freight 737's or just combis? I'm sure I have seen some in the picture database.

Aviateca had a rare 737-300 dedicated freighter before the grupo Taca takeover.
Ameristar in the USA has a few 737-200 freighters
Icelandair I believe still has a 737-300 F
L'Aeropostale had or still has cargo 737-300s
Aerosucre in Colombia.. 737-200s
