FedEx has firm plans to upgrade its daily MEM-TLC-MEM flight FX 054 from the current A300-600F to a DC-10-30F. The change may take place as early as May.

It's always good to see new stuff at your local...

Twice this week theres been an FX MD-11 at FLL, might have just been a equip change.

That's really good news, Adrian.

Do you know what the current A300 schedule is? I've seen it parked at the ramp but would love to see it land or take-off someday before it's replaced by the DC-10.

Arrival to TLC is Mon-Sat at 06:45 AM. Departure to MEM is at 08:30 PM Mon-Fri, and 07:30 PM on Saturdays. The other question... Would need to check with FedEx's Security Dept.

Cheers,

Good for FedEx. If the business is growing, why do you think DHL and UPS keep flying narrowbodies to MEX? DHL flies a (terribly noisy) DC-8-61, and UPS flies a B752F.

Besides, I always see the DC8 over Viaducto Miguiel Alemán on approach well around 8AM - isn't that too late to match its competitors' arrival schedules?.
