Through the grapevine

Some interesting freighter pilot chat here:

They talk about how Kalitta is probably going to soon get the unused 747-400ERF (line 1416) I was fretting about, as well as some stored and lightly used Jade 747-400's.

Also, someone who seems to be knowledgeable about Atlas's internal affairs claims (speaking in the first person) 747-8 lines 1429, 1432, and 1437 were in fact rejected due to being too heavy and burning too much fuel, and another poster claims the frames are spoken for. No surprise, but I wonder who's getting them. I'm putting my money on Korean Air Cargo, with a runner up being Nippon Cargo.
