Sorry for the duplicate thread. Didn't realize the ABX post mentioned it. Moderators can go ahead and delete it.

Kinda makes you think of those goofy commercials on TV about car facts reports. For Sale: Airplane, fresh paint, this 76 is HOT!

You are making the assumption that there hasn't been any scope violation to the Teamster's contract. I would wait to see what the court decides before going out and putting Boeing 767 stickers on your crew bags.

This lease agreement definitely was one of the dumbest moves Heater, The Grabber, and Fat Back have come up with so far. Can't wait to see how this is going to ride out. Tick, tick, tick.....the clock is running !

Yes, but the sheriff is in town. The Titanic is in the Atlantic next to the iceberg. We have the same old skipper and a bunch of rivets are already on the bottom of the sea. Dang this water is cold!

I agree with your analogy, but if I do not keep the glass 1/2 full attitude, I might end up going UPSal "it's like postal but faster, and you get a delivery confirmation when you reach crazy town".

think happy thoughts, think happy thoughts...........

Are they getting all of their 767's from ABX/CHI/ATI/CAM/ATSG (the company formerly known as ABX)? Rumor has it their will be a lot of them on the market soon.

They are all coming from ATSG. I do not know if they are all ABX aircraft though. I am pretty confident in saying they are not additional "bought" aircraft from ATSG. You are right that there are lots of airframes coming out with for sale signs on them. All but the 757 anyway unless FedEx revised their promises to pax airlines for them.

How are things going over at Cappy? I heard that your 727's are also at risk without the BAX contract. Hard pressed to find a company, much less an airline, that is not feeling hard times I guess.

I think your correct on all accounts. We are just waiting to see right now how the BAX contract will pan out. Living it one day at a time I guess.
