Not a revenue flight, what is it doing?

Is it re-positioning to start operations on the European network? Therefore maybe an 'non revenue flight' or empty even?

Appears to be something wrong with it. Just left the coast at FL370 but now descending to FL300 as I write.

Now down to FL270 and still heading east. Surely it must turn back west and divert to YQX ??

According to Flightaware, it's not stopping in BGR. Operating non-stop IND-CDG.

Yes I know, rampguy, but it was well out over the Atlantic at 53W when it suddenly descended to FL270. There must be some problem with it and I doubt it will reach Paris at that flight level as the fuel consumption will be off the dial.

Quoting rampguy (Reply 5):

You are correct (last minute change).

Quoting RobK (Reply 6):
when it suddenly descended to FL270

Initial trips to CDG won't allow MNPS airspace in the NAT region. RVSM could also be an issue (initially).

Out of curiosity (and mainly because I'd love to fly my FS9 757 of FE to more places): where does FedEx send their 757s on its regular schedule?

Fedex Canada just added a 752F tfr'ed from the main Fedex fleet for Cdn domestic ops replacing a 722F. Fedex Canada now operates 1 752F, 5 722F and 1 ATR42F


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