Hopefully someone with their ear to the ground at FedEx can answer a question:
Has FedEx Flight 3719 (A300) permanently changed from Indianapolis-Manchester (NH)-Boston to Indianapolis-Manchester-Harrisburg instead?
The past two nights the plane has been going from Manchester to Harrisburg instead of Boston.
Almost concurrently, Portland, Maine lost a FedEx 727 that previously went Boston-Portland-Newark (spending the day at PWM). Portland lost that flight because FedEx lost the L.L. Bean business. So I guess that means a 727 that went from Boston to Portland now doesn't, and maybe provides the lift that 3719 used to.

Since no one has replied I'll tell you what I know, which isn't much, and it won't be the info you want. Fedex changes routes and equipment almost monthly. I certainly don't try to keep up with it. I can tell you when I do my bid every month all I know is "hey I don't see those "XXX" layovers this month." I think I saw MD-10s on Manchester but since I rarely do domestic I don't know for sure. What's sure is that they will change again! It's not uncommon for sched. to change equip because the load was very light or very heavy.

It would appear that the itinerary change for FE 3719 is permanent. This makes the fourth night the plane has gone from here (Manchester) to Harrisburg instead of to Boston. I guess Harrisburg must need some extra capacity, which they'll find on this nearly empty A300 coming from MHT. At least it was always nearly empty going the 50 miles down to Boston.
