Re: Fleet/Nose Numbers

So I presume you're looking for ship numbers, which as noted is different at each carrier. The Delta Museum has done a good job of cataloging many of the fleet numbers. For example: http://www.deltamuseum.org/docs/site/aircraft-pages/delta_757_list_2013-09.pdf?sfvrsn=2 http://www.deltamuseum.org/do...

Re: How many more years of A380 service do we expect to see?

In the long term, I can't see A380s converted to package carriers, but I wonder if they can be retrofitted for oversized cargo? Maybe they could be retrofitted for an oversized cargo market that runs in between the An-124 and the An-225?
