Re: Will airlines operate cargo only fleets again?

With the impending retirement of passenger 767s, the majors would just have to convert them to freighter ops. Boom, there’s the cargo airline. No new aircraft acquisition required. Retirements? I thought the UA and DL 763s are only being temporarily parked. AA is the one who wants them out entirely...

Re: Will airlines operate cargo only fleets again?

Not in the conventional sense. Now that being said, if a regional carrier could figure out a way to operate cargo RJs, I could see the majors being willing to sell space on those to Amazon/FDX/UPS and increase their mail haulage.
