but still a surprising route for me.

The 777 has been doing MEM-DXB for at least 6 months now
|Quoting fxramper (Thread starter):|
The Middle East is one of the world's fastest growing markets for air cargo and FX is responding to demand. FX 008 will continue from CDG weekly and the same number will be used on off days for hot sort n/s from MEM. FX has 45 firm orders for the 77F and 15 options they anticipate to fill in 2012.

On a related note, according to the FX MSP senior ramp manager, a new aircraft order to replace the MD10 is probably going to be announced within the next few weeks. He also mentioned the A310 will be affected but didn't elaborate. I would think the A310 will be less necessary now with the expansion of the 757 fleet and the upgauge from MD10 to MD11 domestically.
