Re: Lufthansa Cargo considers retiring all MD-11s in 2020

According to CARGO FORWARDER GLOBAL (don't know if this is a credible source) LH is considering keeping the remaining MD-11F's longer than December 31st, 2020. For how long is unclear. Reason is an expected shortage of main deck cargo capacity, especially once COVID-19 vaccines are available. Exclu...
