All 747s in AHK to be integrated into Cathay Freighters so that AHK becomes the regional freight arm. A300s in DHL Europe to be replaced by 757s, except on longer range routes. A300s will initially be wet leased by AHK. 757s with 535C engines lack the range for Asia and will be kept in Europe.

There may be 1 or even 2 A300s leaving Europe for the Far East but not the whole fleet.
The A300 will remain in Europe for several years yet & the B757 is replacing the B727, not the A300.
A300 drivers future in Europe is not under threat.
