It sounds like a combination of both. Boeing this year has announced some BCF orders, which implies their sales teams worked to secure the business. On the other hand, UPS purchased three 767-300ERs from Japan Airlines and had them converted to BCFs because they needed capacity and Boeing did not have available 767-300F production slots.


Thanks for your feedback Stitch. This is interesting, do you remember what BCF orders Boeing has announced this year?

Looks like the 737-800BCF has secured a couple of deals this year per media reports.

This year and the next few are going to be different as newer conversion stock has become available. Both Bedek and Boeing are ramping up conversions.

New production must be managed on costs, so ramping production would not be cheap.

Both Bedek and Boeing make a commission off stock they buy So airlines typically do better buying on their own for price, but time is on the ready stock.

The 767 FAL is currently at Rate 3, which I believe was the maximum it was designed to run at.

That's correct :checkmark: With a total backlog of 80 aircraft and a lot of KC-46 aircraft already produced but not yet delivered, that's a reasonable rate.

To be delivered through 10/31/2020 :

767-2C (PW) BDS JASDF 2
767-2C (PW) BDS USAF 29
767-300F (GE) FEDEX 40
767-300F (GE) UPS 4

Officially, no. But the plan is to retire the oldest aircraft of the affected sub-fleets. If any 767 are retired, it should be the JA60_A batch.

United 767-300 N677UA, which had been in storage at IAH and then in maintenance by AMES at ILN since 10/9/20, is ferrying to ORD this afternoon (12/3/20) for return to service. LN852. Delivered 11/2001. PW4056 engines (of course).

That leaves N667UA, 648UA and 642UA being worked on by AMES at ILN.

Test flight took place today for N395AN, a CAM-owned ex-AA 767-300, which is in TLV for conversion for Amazon. Will be N499AZ and operated by ATI. LN709. Delivered to AA 7/1998. GE non-FADEC engines (of course).

IAI got this turned around in less than 5 months. Interestingly, CAM-owned N394AN has been in TLV since 3/31/20, or more than 8 months, and has yet to do a test flight. It likely will be going to NAC, I believe. But things can change.

Right. Our manuals show N377UP as our final new build. Wonder if there will be more to come...

As you all likely know, DHL bought has bought two of the retired AA 767-300s that CAM (ATSG) did not option from Jetran.

One of those, N348AN, is being converted to a BDSF freighter at the IAI extra line at Mexicana MRO in MEX, and has been there since 7/1/20. Mexicana MRO currently really only has the ability to do one 767-300 conversion at a time in MEX, due to the size of their hangar, and we should expect to see 348AN being completed around November.

Accordingly, ever since DHL bought the other aircraft, N344AN, on August 10, 2020, I suspected that DHL might end up sending it (and maybe more) to Asia to be converted to a BCF freighter by Boeing at EGAT (TPE) or ST Aero (QPG), because Boeing's contractors have available capacity. And, indeed, today (9/20/20) N344AN flew from ROW, where it was stored, to ANC. Likely the ferry crew will pause there and resume the journey tomorrow-ish. We will see which contractor it goes to, assuming that my educated guess is correct...

(DHL put out a press release in late July saying that it would be adding 4 767-300BCFs to its global fleet, but didn't say where or with what feedstock, so it wasn't clear that this retired AA airframe would be one of them.)

I was surprised to note that Boeing had only received 51 orders total for the 767-300BCF, given that Atlas/Titan alone ordered and took delivery of 10 for Amazon, and ANA Cargo had several, 2 of which are at ATI for Amazon. The BDSF, which is less-expensive but generally takes a little longer to produce, seems to be the dominant 767-300 converted freighter.

N384AN will be out around Feb. It will be registered as HP3410 for DHL Aero Expreso. Once it comes online, one of the HP 757's will be returned to the lessor.
Due to Covid, no Airline rep is allowed in TPE or QPG at least for now.

Evening guys,
I did notice that most of the 767-300ER converted to cargo (P2F) are mainly CF6 powered.
Is there a particular reason why the CF6 is prefered instead of the PW ?

Many thanks,

Could just be how the feed-stock has panned out. Over the past 30 years, GE enjoyed around a 3:1 ratio over PW on 767-300ER deliveries so could be there are just more GE-powered frames available than PW-powered ones.

It's also possible existing fleets are predominately GE-powered so operators favor GE for their conversions.

As Stich notes, if the operator has GEs, then they're likely to prefer GEs on additional conversions, all else being equal.

Problem is, all else isn't often equal, so some fleets also have PWs, because they might happen to be on the better of the airframes that are, at that moment, available for conversion.

The onesie-twosie feedstock fleet of 767-300BCFs and BDSFs that AAWW assembled for the Amazon assignment includes two maintenance spares, which are all-white, N1511A and N1619A. Both have Pratts.

These are Atlas-owned, not Titan/Andromeda frames leased to Amazon (despite the prime-number tail number with an A at the end). But they're used a lot on Amazon. In Peak, because Atlas owns them, they're on Peak duty, one for FedEx (1619A) and one for UPS (1511A).

Over at ABX Air, they have 3 767-300BDSFs that run Pratts: N219CY, N220CY, and N226CY, retired SAS ships that run PW4060s. The CEO was asked recently about engine choice, and his comment was that they have 3 at ABX with Pratts, that the GE and the Pratt are both excellent engines on this airplane, and that the Pratts do the missions just fine; it's just an added maintenance complexity to have two engine manufacturers. That said, DL does a lot of ATSG's engine work, and DL of course runs both GEs and Pratts.

One other point: the Pratts for the 767-300ER all have digital engine control (i.e. all PW4060s and the like). The GE's for that airframe come in two flavors, the CF6 with an F at the end and the CF6 without. The F stands for FADEC, which is GE's nomenclature for full-authority digital engine control. Throttle-by-wire if you will. Most (if not all) of the Titan/Andromeda leases to Amazon are FADEC. All of the ATSG (CAM) leases to Amazon run GEs, but all are non-FADEC. Part of the reason for that is that a lot came from AA, ANZ and QANTAS, which used the non-FADEC version.

Over at ABX Air, they have 3 767-300BDSFs that run Pratts: N219CY, N220CY, and N226CY, retired SAS ships that run PW4060s. The CEO was asked recently about engine choice, and his comment was that they have 3 at ABX with Pratts, that the GE and the Pratt are both excellent engines on this airplane, and that the Pratts do the missions just fine; it's just an added maintenance complexity to have two engine manufacturers. That said, DL does a lot of ATSG's engine work, and DL of course runs both GEs and Pratts.

One other point: the Pratts for the 767-300ER all have digital engine control (i.e. all PW4060s and the like). The GE's for that airframe come in two flavors, the CF6 with an F at the end and the CF6 without. The F stands for FADEC, which is GE's nomenclature for full-authority digital engine control. Throttle-by-wire if you will. Most (if not all) of the Titan/Andromeda leases to Amazon are FADEC. All of the ATSG (CAM) leases to Amazon run GEs, but all are non-FADEC. Part of the reason for that is that a lot came from AA, ANZ and QANTAS, which used the non-FADEC version.


Awesome, thanks for the comprehensive feedback

I still find it amazing that we have new builds of an airframe which first flew in the early '80's ... albeit freighters and military ... no passenger birds.

It's an exceptionally good mid-sized freighter and the economics still pencil out very favorably for it in that role.

Yes its payload is excellent at the normal freighter range, so it is very competitive. 60 tons out to 4,000 nm, 31 tons to 6,000 nm for the 300ER. It is quickly becoming the most common type of freighter.

It is a great case of where the range of the model grew with the newer engines, but it is nearly 2,000 less mile range than the 777, 787, 747, A340, and A350 have so it is not flying a lot of dead weight around every flight.
