I have asked the same question for years now. From what I have been told, the airline does have the most profitability within the company. Just to give you an example, one full can on the 8 pays for the the entire cost for that flight. You can do the math. The 8 holds 17 A2 cans and 1 slightly smaller L9 can on the top. You can also get about 4-5 more loose load cans in the belly. So yes, for the size of the air ops at UPS, they do in fact have the highest profitability of any other group.

Cool Jungle

Interesting that you would think that the TA was the FIRST written offer. Do you think that our NC was so lame to accept the FIRST offer? Do you not think that the TA was the cumlmination of MANY offers and counter-offers? I have to believe that JM and BT are more savvy than that and we are seeing the end of the road, not the beginning. I know the numbers may not be what we think we are worth, but my buds in management tell me that we aren't worth what we are being paid now!

Default ups or fedex

To stay or go..

Based on your name here, I don't think you will ever be happy anywhere! Like freightpuppy says, the grass isn't always greener. There are warts at every company; you just have to be able to live with them.

Instead of worrying, enjoy your family and friends and pour a single malt and enjoy the sunset. Life is more than just ups or fedex, be happy that you can afford the single malt no matter which you chose...

Freighpuppy, Take a look in the annual stockholders report. It breaks earnings down into dollars and percentages. The highest profit margins are in the International package business(although they are not the biggest dollar number, that goes to domestic, with overnight domestic at the highest margin for domestic). Until they build roads across the ocean or drive trucks on the sea floor at 600 MPH, this shouldn't change and is anticipated to continue growing.

You guys should quit arguing and buy some of that stock while it's on sale. I did.
