Qantas does all that. Atlas is ACMI.

Another reason I heard: Qantas looked into to starting freight flying to replace us, since they did have the 747 aircraft. They found out it was very difficult.

Qantas added a 747 from Atlas, and is now using three 747-400s, is the last I heard.
I remember hearing about Delta looking at buying us many years ago. Interesting about QF.

A drop in the bucket compared to the millions lost by the pilot group.

It's all kind of the same. Sometimes people leave Kalitta to come to Atlas. Sometimes it's the other way around. Today Atlas is a little bit better than Kalitta, but that could change tomorrow. I'd go with whatever suits your friend's lifestyle more.

I have to agree with you. Right now, you guys have a pretty good contract.
