It has been suspended in general as far as I know, meaning it isn't happening on a large scale. But you need to ask your sponsor. Maybe your sponsor can get you in to see his Chief Pilot, or at least ask when he can bring you in. Your sponsor should be your source for info, not flightinfo.
It wasn't a scolding. Your sponsor can get all the up to date info from his ACP or the ACP Admin Coordinator. It sounded like you guys were both scratching your heads about it. If you look on the Majors board and do a search, there are lots of threads out there for this, and everyone seems to have a different answer. And since things seem to change daily at Fedex.... I just didn't want you to get the wrong info. Besides, even if they have been suspended, if your sponsor knows someone real well, he might be able to sneak you in.
