San Francisco Express - another big one
Several OOOCL ships have been given Express names, and they are post-Panamax ships too, but slightly smaller in terms of carrying capacity.
These ships have been bumped from Asia/Med/Europe service by even larger ships, thus sustaining the trickle down theory. That theory is that the largest ships will always serve the Asia/Med/Europe service and will displace other ships that will then run transatlantic. All bets on this theory may be off in 2014 when the expanded Panama Canal opens.
