TNT owns 4 relatively new 747-400s that UPS would love to get it's hands on. The rest of their fleet is a mix of owned and chartered aircraft that would have no place in UPS' fleet.
I don't think the company's goal is to screw IPA, not at all. However they want to make money, and as much of it as possible - which is great because that's what keeps us employed.

I do try to become more informed however I believe growth from within is the best way to go. As far as TNT - well the question was asked what we think will happen with the TNT's air side? I don't think my response implies that the company wants to "screw IPA" but rather that it'd maximize the returns, that’s all.

I'd have said the same thing if Fedex bought TNT (which still might happen).
