Hmm, I'm not actually sure this information is right.

I can't find any record of FX ordering or operating a BBJ (or a 73G for that matter).

Nor can I. I'm sure I would have caught wind of a Fedex BBJ purchase.

Fedex recently acquired a Bombardier Global Express. I doubt a BBJ would be needed also.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

It's Flytecomm, home of the screwups.

FedEx doesn't have any 737's of any model, nor do they plan on getting any in the near future...from what I know. It was probably some sort of typo somewhere in the system, as it takes a lot of skill to enter in every single flight that is tracked without a mistake somewhere.

Who knows, it could have even been a mistake by FedEx's dispatching. It happens every now and then...like one time an A300 was taking off as usual from MEM, but he dispatcher accidentally hit A3300, so the system just knocked off the last 0 and kept it at A330! Now, if FedEx started flying A330's, we would DEFINITELY know about it by now.  Big grin

But anyway, hope this helps. Cheers!
