727 Flights On Mondays

Thu Jan 25, 2007 11:57 am

Ok, I have spent the past two hours trying to answer this question, and I can't find the data anywhere. Where do FedEx or UPS fly there 727s on Mondays. I can find tons of 727 flights Tuesday-Friday, but apparently nothing on Friday. Do they shut down these planes for the weekend?

Unless it's a large and busy station, my hunch is they arrive at the out station Saturday a.m. and don't depart again until Monday evening. In some cases they may arrive Friday a.m. and sit until Monday evening.

Busier stations operate select flights even on Saturdays and Sundays.

For example: We have one FedEx A310 that sits on the ramp here in GRR from Friday a.m. until Monday evening.

Our second FedEx A310 sits only from Sunday afternoon until Monday evening.
Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.
