Can anyone tell me a bit about the loading of these flights, in terms of both volume and weight?
The reason I ask is twofold.
I know they op these flights nonstop, and I know that both flights are far, far outside the range of the MD
-11 with anywhere close to its full cargo load.
They're also outside, but not quite as far, of the A380's expected full cargo range.
I'm sure I'm just ignorant on this topic, but my guess is its because the full volume of the planes, when consumed by FedEx Letters, Boxes and Tubes (tm), are well below its full weight.
Anyway, as many details as possible are appreciated. I have this strange fascination with cargo ops.
