If I were leading a group of fine young animals such as ourselves

I'd be flying the very first evolution and ensuring the situation on the ground was safe for my pilots to conduct follow on flights.

Oooohrahhhhh GC Sass....

Maybe CGN is finally getting that Africa flying.

Absolutely NO CHANCE I would entertain these trips.
Try to draft me ... NO.
Try to assign it to me on Reserve ... Sorry, I just threw up right before you called.

Fly the necessary freight to wherever necessary and within range, then throw it on a boat, then throw it on a train or bus.
Jeopardizing employees in the face of a lethal pandemic, without training or adequate gear is ludicrous.

Corporate malfeasance.

Default UPS loses CDC contract to FEDEX?

We only flew them MEM-LGG (Liege) last weekend. The "new" MD-11 operator Western Global then flew them into Monrovia, Liberia.

Neither document has reference to CDC flights.

Upon further review CDC is not mentioned in UPS FOM or OPSPECS. However one current controlled document discusses how UPS Airlines is a participant in the the VA stockpile program and at the option of the CDC, will operate flights carrying prepackaged medical supplies throughout the US.
It appears this document needs to be updated since UPS is no longer a "participant".

"FedEx leveraged its global network of logistics expertise to move the supplies by truck and by plane from the United States to Europe as part of a special donated shipment. From there, the shipment was moved to its final destination in Liberia."

My guess is that the supplies were consolidated in CGN or CDG and then flown to Liberia on a third party aircraft.

You'd think without that pesky CDC requirement we'd free up resources and not need Cathay to fly a freighter of Apple stuff into KSDF this morning.
