Wondering how many FedEx 757F's are now in service?

As of Monday, our daily GRR-IND flight looks to have switched to the 757 from the A310. Our two daily MEM flights remain the A310.


Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

While on the subject of FX, can someone tell me if MD10 service is completely gone from LAS and now only A310/300? Can someone confirm that?

- As often as I pass IND on I70 I have only seen an FX 757 one time. Can not wait to see more of them at the hub!

The MD10 services LAS on the morning side from MEM and turns and goes back to MEM. The MEM evening turn flight is a A300. December the MD10 will turn the morning side and the night side from MEM.

Since the 757 cannot carry any LD containers, does FX use the lower deck of their 757s? Also, how many pallets can they put on the main deck?

I imagine they can bulk load it...

While on the subject of the FedEx 757's, I heard they were using them into DCA. My question is, where does FedEx park at DCA?

Off the top of my head, I can't remember there being any dedicated cargo ramp there. Which wouldn't make any sense either, since FedEx is the only cargo carrier operating there (to my knowledge).

They do bulk load. Mail and document bags usually in forward holds and the same plus late bulk and inaccessible haz in the aft.

David,

What time of day do you drive past the hub? I work the night sort and I have seen 3 757's parked on the norh ramp. Usually at Gates 48 and 50. When I'm leaving around 3:30 a.m, there is usually 1, but this week, 2 757's parked way down around Gates 68 or 70 (in Plainfield). I don't know where they go. One of them I see early on in the evening, which I believe goes to MEM after the Heartland Sort.

Wow! It seems like only yesterday the 1st was delivered! I thought the 757F was to replace the 727's? Is that the case? For what I'm hearing the 757F is being used to down-gauge A310 routes? Or have I read to much into a few posts? When was the entry into service?

Thank you. Very interesting.

I've never heard of anyone use that term before. That end of the airport is usually referred to as part of Plainfield. I know it isn't, but its' more of a joking manner of how far it was from the old terminal days.
