View Full Version : Can you Jumpseat on Empire?

03-06-2010, 08:24 AM
Hi folks,
I've never had the pleasure of jump-seating with freight. Now I'm nearing my wife's due date and I need to explore additional exit strategies in the event I need to get home ASAP if I'm on the road. The issue is I'll be most limited in the evening in outstations such as ACV, RDD or OXR. Is it possible to hop on a Empire or Am-Flight? If so do you simply list using the FedEx number (800) 544-9044 (the # a FedEx pilot gave me) or UPS (800) 228-2739. Also, is there anywhere you can find schedules or are those kept under wraps for security reasons? Info on riding on FedEx and UPS would be appreciated too as I might get stuck in a hub. Thanks, any info would be greatly appreciated!

I believe you have to contact empire or amflight, and with empire the jumpseat is on the ATR.

FYI ... no international jumpseats on FedEx, not even for CASS guys ... sorry, wish it were different

I need to get to PHX so I guess LAX or ONT would be my best bet. Is there anything from SFO to PHX or would I need to go SFO-LAX or SFO-ONT first for a sort?

Sadly EA does not go from SFO to PHX. We have a bunch of 208's in PHX but no way to get from where you are to PHX. Best of luck!!
