QF announced dropping one of our jets today. Could explain the class hiatus. Between the potential of 3 400s looking for homes and at least 1 -8, they had best be hustlin' in Purchase.....

I'm typed in the 400, recommended by a current Atlas pilot, applied many times and have never gotten a response.

Default schedule

For anyone looking for a "typical" new guy schedule: I was number 51 out of 51 eligible to bid in HSV this month for 47 published lines. I got my 40th choice out of 47 lines. I was awarded a 60 day line that looks like this: 14 on/14 off/9 on/5 off/11 on/8 off. I'm actually very happy with that and the bidding seniority only goes up from here.

QF did not announce they were dropping one of our jets today... This was company news months ago. Not a surprise at all and very much old news.

Yes they did. It had been rumored but just became official.

Boom! That sucks...losing business with Emirates AND Qantas. Hopefully our management team can work some more of their magic.

Look guys, we have proven the concept (that cargo pays big yields) to many of our customers before...and they have gone on to buy their own fleet of -F aircraft. Below is a list of our previous customer that either acquired their own -F for the first time, or grew their own -F fleet...

Lufthansa
Air France
KLM
Cargolux
China Eastern
China Southern
Varig
Florida West/LAN
Thai
Malaysian
Korean
Alitalia
China Airlines (Taiwan)

And of course, the latest, Qantas, and Emirates...

My personal opinion is that we are going to see an increase of charters, CMI, and even parking of some older and leased aircraft in our fleet. Maybe, we have reached a point where placing 747 aircraft has become so difficult that we might migrate towards a smaller fleet of 747s, and get into a mix of 777s, and 767s.

The latest I heard from an Atlas buddy is that there is a pause in May. However looks like 14 a month every month indefinitely, from Jun on.
