The rumor is that all MD11's will be brought home to operate ONLY domestic routes. The planes are not able to make service due to OOS events along with parts issues. MD11's will domicile at SDF and operate to ONT-PDX-MEM-BOS-ATL-DFW until they can be sold (at a loss due to a bad game plan) or retired. I cannot understand why we wasted so much time, money and resources (the sim etc) instead of buying the 747-400 sooner. I guess we again "stepped over a dollar to pick up a penny" but what can be done. With the MD-11 operating domestic routes will service to our customers suffer.
