Seating, inflight service, etc. How do they compare to scheduled carriers? I've heard that they aren't bad.

Seating is like any other. From what I remember it's either 3-2 (left-right) or 2-2.

UPS modified 5 of their 727 aircraft. They have replaced most of the flight displays with EFIS. They were stage 3 before the rest of the industry.

Yes... it has windows and overhead bins. The F/A's wear the standard uniforms (not brown) and have some kind of space theme tie.

They serve meals in flight and provide drinks. Service is better than what you'd get on a regular airline flight.

The only thing that tells you, that you're flying UPS is the logo on the outside.

Yesterday, I was on the Mass Pike at the Lee Rest area and I saw a DC-8 (probably UPS) northbound at an altitude of<10,000 feet probably descending for an approach. Which airport, Barnes, Bradley, or Westover?
