A friend of mine is a pilot at UPS. He says that he thinks that UPS will never take delivery of their A380's and that they will eventually buy the 747 800 (or 747 400 - Im not sure) because they will be able to use the engines from their ETOPS 767's after they are too old to be ETOPS certified. He claims that it will save UPS a lot of money.
My question - is this even possible or is he full of it??
