Atlas Air B767-300

I am just curious to know are the two Atlas Air B767-300ER N640GT and N641GT pax or cargo versions?

Atlas is rumoured to be getting their first two 767 freighters this month. They are 767-200s that are owned by DHL and will be operated CMI by Atlas out of the CVG hub for routes in North America.

In CVG yesterday

I happened to see N650GT arriving in CVG yesterday afternoon. Sounds like it will start flying next weekend.

Yes, you did, shroom...we have been sending 767s there for short-term parking between flights in the Gulf region. They then ferry somewhere to pick up pax, and continue operations.

Just been announced today by DHL Air UK that 2 of their B767's are to be transferred to Atlas in early 2013. Can anyone from the west side of the pond shed any light on what routes these new aircraft are likely to pick up, or a more accurate time frame for their arrival?

There is a rumor at Atlas of picking up two 767's for DHL Asia.

Atlas Air Worldwide Expands CMI Service
Will Operate Two New Customer-Owned B767s on Intra-Asian Routes

PURCHASE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (NAS: AAWW) announced today that its Atlas Air, Inc. unit will provide operating service on intra-Asian routes for two new Boeing 767-300ERF aircraft owned by DHL Express beginning in the latter part of the first quarter 2013.Atlas Air will operate the aircraft for its sister company, Polar Air Cargo Worldwide, Inc., linking the intra-Asian flights with Polar's existing transpacific, all-cargo services for DHL and other customers.

The new operation represents a continued expansion of Atlas Air's asset-light CMI (Crew, Maintenance and Insurance) service solution, which was launched in 2010. CMI is expected to be a strategic driver of company revenues and earnings and improved business mix over the next few years and beyond.
With the addition of the new aircraft to the company's operating certificate, Atlas Air's fleet of B767s will increase to 10 aircraft.

Plans for those two aircraft being operated by DHK failed to materialise and, in plain English, DHL have no use of them in the European based fleet.

GDHLJ and LK (the two youngest in the fleet) will transition from DHK to GTI and operate out of PVG. Rumours have been floating SYD will be one of the destinations, replacing the CVG-HNL-SYD rotation currently operated by a CKS 744F, but that it is only a rumour. All that is known is they'll be Asia based, so it might as well be out of Honkers flying to ... who knows?

Failed to materialize may be stretching the truth a little. The story is that management was sent to China to negotiate the routes and they made some fundamental errors. Instead of hiring a professional to assist in the negotiations, they decided to do it on the cheap and managed to offend the locals big time. The CEO, who should have been involved to begin with, traveled out to smooth things over and only managed to make things worse. As a result they were invited to leave China via the shortest route available.

With no contract, there's no use for two brand-new Boeing 767s ordered specifically for the Asian runs and pilot jobs are at risk.
