Interesting article. Thanks for the link. Now the big multi-million dollar question of who is going to operate these. The article indicates that Lufthansa crews might do the flying, but that seems odd as they are not a 767 operator. Not that it would be too hard to add another type. Management at both ABX Air and Astar have indicated that the aircraft are not going to their carriers, and ABX management has gone so far as to speculate that they will be operated by Polar. However, ABX Air pilot union management seems to feel that there is still a chance that their carrier will be the operator. I guess time will tell.
Good goes around!
