Most freight flights occur at night so that their freight leaves major freight hubs like Frankfurt in daylight and the airspace is less busy at night, which suits their type of operation.

The main hubs in Europe are Leipzig (DHL), Paris (FedEx) and Cologne (UPS). Liege was TNT's hub but with FedEx having taken over TNT it now sees more of a mix of cargo traffic.

OP, the terrible truth is that there are some fly-by-nights that hang around DUB during the day

There’s a whole ASL Group, Safair in South Africa & a Belgian & French division. The French division is fairly big, they were previously L’Aeropostal & lately Europe airpost operating 737-300s on passenger charters & cargo flights amongst a few ATR & A300 freighters. The Belgian division was previously TNT Airways.

Read all about it : http://www.aslaviationholdings.com/

The important thing about ASL is that they operate EI-STA, a 737 of a certain vintage .

This is how it used to look before they gave it a go with white paint.

Jesus, he asked a simple question, that's all. He didn't make any assumptions.

I’ve deleted my post as maybe I was being too hard on the OP, but he did make a massive assumption that the aircraft weren’t flying. It wasn’t even a question but rather a statement.

It tends to be good manners to acknowledge people answering though, which was my main point.
