Default Tome announces MD replacement plan

Take it for what itís worth, but in the last investor call the CEO mentioned that MD replacement would begin in about three years. No mention of airframe type or number, but hey at least she might be thinking about thinking about it.

That should be about her exit time. That timeline matches the aircraft acquisition slides on Comply. Hoping for more 767s before that. Wingspan is gonna be a A350f issue.

Anything that can replace the MD will have wingspan issues. It will be interesting to see what the plan is.

My bet is 777-300 converted, Connie is the first conversion customer, and they carry way more than the 777-200
