Re: Air Cargo (non Amazon/DHL) Thread - 2022

Yes you are right they have quite a few converted 747s. My bad. About ten BCFs all converted ten or so years ago. Still don't think Kalitta will convert the stored 744 they just bought. Also, who would do the conversion? AFAIR it was IAI and Boeing who did those. Neither has done one for what? Year...

Glad they are coming toward an agreement on this though! So, will this allow DL to be even more flexibl...
