Fed-Ex Orders A380.

Mon Jan 22, 2001 10:03 pm

Hi.

All I know is that a cargo airline (Pretty sure it was Fed-Ex) have several A380's on order, due to be delivered sometime during 2008.

Does anyone have better detailed information?

Just in case you missed it earlier...FedEx ordered 10 A380's. 3 will be delivered in 2008, 3 in '09, 3 in '10 and 1 in 2111. With several more on option. FedEx estimates it will take 22 minutes to offload the aircraft; the same time it takes to offload an MD-11.
