    FDX A300 Jumpseat

    There is usually 4 seats in the back. One sits separately and a row of three. Depending on your height you could lay down on them. Most people pull the cushions off and lay on the floor.

    YGTBSM - FedEx jumpseating suspended.

    Listened to a conference call from DW during LEC meeting today. Obviously one of our questions was what was driving this. He had talked to JL who said he was blindsided by the news and did not have any news to pass on at this time. When questioned about why business/staging weren't cancelled...

    CALLOUTS - AIRBUS – BOEING and other

    A310/300-600 Pm calls " loc * " (loc star) and "GS * " (glideslope star) when the FMA's are displayed on the PFD in the LAND mode. I guess it could vary depending on the respective company's procedures.

    Jumpseat on FDX and UPS

    Goose, If remember correctly, the union put out a blurb about jumpseating a month or so ago. I think the CASS system is in place, but management is holding back. Probably as you mentioned, because of negotiations. Enjoy peak. slowdryver

    Typical Block hours on Cargo Airline bid line (FDX, UPS, etc.)

    Hub turn time Hose Jimenez, Mas o menos tres horas en el "hub turn". Depends on where you come in from and where you are going to. The business model plays the different time zones; thus (generally) most east coast trips leave earlier compared to west coast. slowdriver

    Interviewing usually takes place in the old training building. Looks like they were all dressed up for the first day which includes all the picture taking for Id's, meeting the VIP's, etc. Good luck to the poolies.

    Flying the FK100 - Good, Bad and Ugly...

    I'm going to have to disagree on the airconditioning working well. It might have worked well over in Europe in the summer, but not that great on the ground in the south during the summer. Other than that, it is a great airplane! Fly safe.

    Any Fedex News?

    I haven't heard anything about classes. Just the usual rumors about which aircraft are going to replace the 72's. Fiscal year ended last month. Maybe some hope of news relatively soon from the bean counters whom seem to get the ball rolling. Hang in there ya'll.

    FedEx Commute

    I haven't checked the schedule recently, but there is a 727 that operates daily out of stewart/newburg. Having said that, there are a few guys that live up in that area making it a little competitive for the two jumpseats. I don't think we operate out of the other cities mentioned . Hope it...

Oct. classes have definately been cancelled and the Sep. class postponed. His best guess would be...
