I think we should nominate EVERY pilot on our seniority list, starting from the bottom and working up. The guys on the bottom, on reserve, getting called in the middle of the night, to fly the sh*ttiest trips, all ought to have a BZ.

While we write BZ nominations we are, presumably, supposed to forget that management wants to freeze our pensions and experiment with PBS.

Think again!

Jeez, when did BZs stop coming with the free dinner or voucher?

If they still had that attached, nominate away! As it is now, this is a no-cost distraction item from management.

Ignore it and carry on, gents.

I love the idea of nominating the entire negotiation committee. 4000+ nominations....Wonder if Mgmt would get the idea?

Hey check your E Mail. Mr Parker already gave everyone a BZ. Personally I think the coffee lady deserves it and should get 4000 more.

The new countries added include European nations Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Norway, Portugal and Sweden.

In Asia, FedEx has added China, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.

In the Middle East, Bahrain, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates join the service.

And, in the Americas FedEx has added Belize, Bolivia, Ecuador, El Salvador, French Guiana, Guyana, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Suriname.

FedEx said its International First service is most often used for business documents, electronic and high-tech equipment, medical devices, clinical trials and shipments for the entertainment industry.

Raj Subramaniam, Executive Vice President, Global Strategy, Communications and Marketing, FedEx Services, said: "This latest International First expansion highlights the FedEx commitment to serve our customers who need to ship critical, time-sensitive material.

The expansion also aligns with our global growth strategy, and the need to stay ahead of customer demand"

It's like the good cop bad cop routine? One day a pat on the back the next a day they are trying to act like we are in a concessionary contractual negotiations environment and they are trying to forces PBS and A plan retirement amendments?
