regardless of how bad things get, the mail will always have to move. And there will always be someone who absolutely positively has to have something there 5 minutes ago. The big box movers can cover a great deal of the market but they can't be everywhere at once. On demand cargo is a necessity for filling in the gaps that UPS and FedEx can't get to.
I think there will always be a market for time critical parts. I think at the moment though most of that work is being done with a guy in a King Air or MU2 with an couple critical items rather than a Falcon 20 full of nuts and bolts.
How many hours a year have on demand freight pilots been flying lately? I had about 400 hours in 2007 and I should end up around 350-375 hours for 2008.
