Default Kalitta 777s

Congrats to all at Kalitta. The 777 will be the start of a new era for you. You will love the jet.

Yes, initially DHL. We only have one that we bought. Haven't been awarded any of DHL's yet that I know of.
As I understand it, it needs to go on proving runs and conformity checks.

Good start? It's a pretty good middle and finish, too!

Emirates has a brand new 777F at Boeing KPAE ready to replace that one. It was EKs 2nd oldest. Titan Leasing/Southern has their oldest now registered as N704GT.

Unfortunately, all of our planes are a little old.

782 was the last 400 off the assembly line. They are new enough.
