Like I told you yesterday, there are Polar and Atlas planes flying for FedEx. I can confirm we see them in Hong Kong.

Ah OK, so they do ANC - HKG, Those Altlas 744's in the white and purple colors sure match with FE's livery! Nice to finish that one up.

When you saw it there on the 27th it was operating DOV-ANC-HKG, then it turned around and operated HKG-KIX-ANC-ORD and is currently enroute to JFK.

Fed-Ex had used Atlas for years.

Look for quite a few of them parked up at the FDX ramp around Christmas.

Leasing is cheaper then buying, Especially when you are only going to use them when you need the extra lift.
