Amazon is getting 15 more 737s

Where oh where will they go......

And hey anyone know the deal with those DHL tripples? Heard Southern was getting a few but with all the Atlas/Southern family drama Id think Amazon and DHL would want to diversify more.

Southern got the first 2 777s and the first 5 73-8s, No word on the rest.

The two tripples are DHL, not Amazon. The article was about 73's not triples...

Tracking...DHL had ordered 14 (I think) awhile back, just wondering the latest rumors where they are going.

Spelling is difficult at this stage in life. Give him a few years.

I'm guessing that three are going to Mesa... JO is coming to whipsaw the ACMI world!

I would look for Swift to make an appearance in this rancid gene puddle soon.

Amazon unfortunately is operating like DHL. A hodgepodge of ACMI carriers who low bid each other for the business and a race to the bottom. The only way for the pilots to come out on top in this scumbag environment , is a radical new approach and tactic to unify the acmi labor groups and demand across the board competitive wages. It would be a monumental undertaking but one worth the effort imo. The collective union groups would have to bury the past and focus on the future.
Am I dreaming or can a concept like this work? otherwise its a lost battle and each pilot group is ticked at the other. With FedEx dropping Amazon, the lift is going to the other acmi carriers, but the wages are not. Its a win for Amazon. (Cheaper lift than FedEx)
Please chime in with your thoughts.
Thanks
