FedEx doesn't carry all it shipments on their own planes. Just a part of it...
It could also be loaded on a NWA or UA-flight. So don't bet on your routing.
If they told you so...maybe, but things change quickly in regardence of capacity, number of shipments etc.

Apple's not the only company shipping from Taiwan. When I ordered a Gateway 450 notebook it shipped from Taiwan. It must be cheaper to build them over there and send them over here. When my Gateway was shipped it was shipped via UPS. The tracking number I put in came up with some 250 other packages in the same shipment being delivered in the US.
Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.
