With there being no official holiday C-NET this year for the US Postal Service, all that holiday mail that went by dedicated air network last year has to move by some other way. An earlier thread discussed how that would be (more truck, more rail, and the balance on FedEx, UPS and the remaining domestic passenger carriers that still fly the mail).
Today is the busiest mailing day of the year. So I ask you folks out there on the ramp at the passenger carriers (and FedEx and UPS, too): How's the mail moving? Are you seeing any larger than normal backups on the ramp at your station or your carrier? Are you having to fling more mail aboard than you ever remember? (If so, that's not necessarily a bad thing because it's at least 50 cents a pound for your carrier if the aircraft can haul it.)
Meanwhile, MEM, SDF and PHL seem like good spotting spots for unusual cargo birds this week. Look for unusual action from CKS, KFS, APW, CWC, EIA, ATN, CCI, GTI, MUA and the like. The first two spots are obvious, but PHL seems to be one UPS hub that's getting quite a few unusual visitors.
All the best...and stay warm (and safe) out there!
