>The 767 is relatively new to be retiring and rather odd since KLM is or was moving to an all Boeing fleet.<
hauls a great deal of cargo (hence the presence of Combi's throughout their history) and the A330 is simply better for cargo hauling than the 767. I would not expect a 7E7 order to be too far off
>I'm wondering why KLM is holding on to the MD
-11's when most other airlines have already retired them from service. I'm glad they're holding on to them.<
They have very favorable lease rates on the planes, crews that are already trained and the plane is perfectly efficient for what it does. Also, every MD
-11 that has not been destroyed by a crash or fire is still flying, just most haul cargo.
>I think I was on a KL
767 from MEM
, can anyone confirm? What will they replace 767 with?<
handed the route over to NW
, and NW
flies what else? An old DC-10
. Actually, this route was mostly handled by an MD
-11, but I am sure 767s would make appearences.
