http://biz.yahoo.com/ifc/news/91500-1.html
this was posted back in september 15th,2000 I have been hearing that dhl will use the aircraft base at it's new CVG HUB. if anyone has information on this .. but it looks like from what i have been hearing and seeing the posting in biz that it looks like FedEx/Ups is in for a run for there money.. this would put dhl fleet two over 280 aircraft. sense DHL Airways & DHL International are working as one company now.

Anyone know what type of 747? Was it the -400, 400LR, 747-X, or the 747-X Stretch?

Don't you mean 757s? I know they're getting them, from BA, and I believe it's about 44, so maybe the people who wrote the report had it wrong and were referring to that order...

I think Juul is right. 44 B747's at 1.3 billion means 29.5 million a piece. Too cheap for a B747 .
