View Full Version : Checkin in FDX

It's unbelievable that I've been a deviator for so long, I don't know what I need to do to check in for a DH out of MEM. I have a trip starting with a DH that the accepted fare is so low I have no choice but to come to MEM and DH from there. I was just going to stay at the 4 Bullets hotel and take the scheduled DH the next morning.

Here's the question...do I have to go to AOC to check in before I go to the pax terminal or is there some way to check in from the pax terminal?

Sorry to ask what seems to be an incredibly stupid question.

You can check in on VIPS online or over the phone. Of course on occasion the other crew members hang out in the AOC and expect to meet you so it's not a bad idea to drop an email.

You can check in via the Biometric or call them from the terminal, whichever you prefer. Obviously, make sure you do it before the required time.

I've done the phone call or internet check in on a regular basis. No problems with either one.

Also, and this is probably common knowledge, but the crew bus will take you directly from the Democrat lot to the terminal.

Thanks guys for the info. My flying partner is already deviating so I really don't have a need to go to AOC. Thanks again.

If you check in via phone, you'll need your "help code" to verify that you're really you. (In case you haven't thought of it since you set it up.)

I think we should start pressing our finger on the biometric exactly one hour (2 in ANC) prior to departure, then call for your ride and see what happens. That's what we are required to do right? No more, no less.

"I think we should start pressing our finger on the biometric exactly one hour (2 in ANC) prior to departure, then call for your ride and see what happens. That's what we are required to do right? No more, no less."

We are dropping the ball on this one. We should all be checking in AT SHOWTIME in AOC, then, per the FOM, check required FCIF's before each duty period, next stop is Corp Travel to get the ticket, then proceed to the terminal bus(it just left? I guess I'll catch the next one in 20 minutes.). Once at the terminal, get in line to check your bag to destination. Now through security....etc. Nothing out of bounds, just following the rules.


4a2b or not 4a2b, that is the question. WE are the answer.

Just to clarify, the two hours in ANC is for a deadhead NOT a regular trip. For all operating trips it is one hour.
