Default Cargo carrier jumpseat question

I couldn't quite find the answer to this question: Can one jumpseat on cargo carriers (UPS/FedEx/Atlas etc) internationally? I'm in CASS and know how domestic jumpseating works, but I am not clear on how it works internationally. As I understand it, domestic jumpseating on FedEx, for example, is first-come first-served via the 24-hr jumpseat line, but how does it work internationally?

Any advice would be great.

Unless you're one of the specific carriers, FedEx will not take you international. Last I remember it being Southwest, American, United, US Air, PSA, and Piedmont.

Atlas will take almost anyone, just submit the request form online. Finding out their schedule can be a hassle, but they've treated me well international.

Thank you, sir. Does Atlas have regular routings? Couldn't actually find the info on their site...perhaps my Google-fu is weak.

Was there a RECENT change?

Last I heard/knew, UPS and FedEx DIDN'T take ANY offline carriers int'l.

But as mentioned, K4 and 5Y will.

It may not be on a daily basis but several flights a week MIA-AMS, HSV-LUX, ORD-HNL-SYD, CVG-ICN and NRT, NRT-,HKG-, PVG- and ICN back to ANC and CVG or ORD or JFK, LAX to NRT or HKG.

Polar Air Cargo is flown by Atlas. Go to the their website and check their schedule. That's just a part of Atlas's schedule but it's consistent. There are numerous other flights but many change based on costumer needs. If you know someone there, you can ask about specific routes or once you fill out the jumpseat form, reply to the email about any other routes.

I thought FedEx ran into some reciprocal issues and let some in but I may have heard wrong. I can't find where I originally read it now.
