When the last Fdx B-777 is retired to the boneyard, the 2-man crew will be flown back to Memphis on a Fdx B-727.

We had a similary saying at UPS about the DC8 crew that would take the last 74/75/76/A300 crew back home...and the DC8's are now gone (along with our 72's).

I used to driver her. Now, I'm in training in the back seat. You may thank Christ you're not driving her but I'd do anything to get my window seat back even on the slave ship. The coup de grace is after going through all of this madness and completing training, they reward you with another paycut... and at 55 CH. My fun meter is pegged.
