Re: AerSale buys 24 stored B757 to be converted to 757F - customer?

Would these possibly be for the likes of a FedEx or UPS? Or do they usually purchase the aircraft themselves and then have someone else convert them.

They each already have 757F but I don’t know the engine types or if that matters.

Why not? No restriction on doing it that I can think of, and it's probably because it's cheaper than in the U.S. Not to mention a parking-space-availability issue too..."desert" type locales or others with similar low humidity are going to fill up given the huge fleets of the US3! CALMSP:...

So how many times will Delta let you change your flights without paying a change fee if your flights keep getting affected by COVID-19? I changed them once today because apparently my return flight on April 11th has been canceled so I changed it to a different time that day.

Re: Kobe Bryant killed in a helicopter crash

So my understanding is he was following Highway 101 and then became disoriented or something was right, so the pilot initiated a 180 degree turn to follow Highway 101 back from where he came from but halfway though the turn they impacted the terrain belly first?
