U.S. Postal Service Still Flying?

Fri Oct 10, 2003 10:36 am

I haven't seen one here in TPA in a long time. There are no shots in the database since 2001. Are they still flying? If not, who's delivering the mail?  Confused

No, they don't fly anymore. I think they sold off there airplanes about a year or two ago.

A combination of airlines haul mail for the USPS. FedEx does their overnight packages.

I thought that FX signed a deal with the USPS to carry a lion's share of the bulk mail, while the combination of carriers pick up the rest..... I'll have to find the article I read about that.....
