|Quoting Columba (Thread starter):|
What I don´t understand is will World getting 2 MD 11s from LH or will World fly for LH Cargo ?
A German aviation site reports that World will get two MD 11s from LH but if I read the article above it seemsto me that World will fly for LH.
|Quoting Flyer732 (Reply 3):|
One of them will be the aircraft currently being converted to a freighter.
|Quoting Viasa (Reply 10):|
N279WA has at the moment a Pax interrior... but she would be converted to a freighter.
|Quoting Wjcandee (Reply 11):|
I had understood that she was in for conversion already. If she isn't, I don't see how she's going to be ready to begin freighter service at the end of October.
|Quoting Clipper002 (Reply 13):|
World already had 2 MD-11CF's. N275WA and N276WA were both converted over to pure freighter several years ago. The payload penalties on an MD-11CF operating as a freighter makes it very noncompetitive with a normal MD-11F. The changeover from pax to cargo and v/v is not something that can be completed overnight and has to be accomplished at a full service maintenance facility with all of the materials on hand ahead of time.
|Quoting LTU932 (Reply 12):
wouldn't it perhaps be convenient to convert the full PAX MD-11s they have into -CFs (Convertible Freighters)?
|Quoting INTENSS (Reply 14):
Almost done. (The conversion of 279.)
