Its my understanding that Cargo jets arent used as much as passenger
ones...therefore extending their life even more.

There are plenty of new cargo jets, there are UPSs 757 and 767 Package
Freighters (pure freighters from the factory), and they just put in a order
with Airbus for A300 Freighters (60 at least i think) i believe, and then
there is FedEx, they have new MD-11s and i believe the ones they ordered were
built as pure freighters...not sure if the Airbuses FedEx has were ordered
from the factory or converted...i think they were factory converted, but i'm
sure i'll be corrected one way or another.
