I sincerely hope this trend doesnít continue for our Purple friends and your future operational plans are not negatively affected. Fedex or UPS in a bad situation does not help us at all, especially going into contract negotiations, although this time itís different due to looming retirements. My fear for Fedex is they will shrink or stagnate the flying side and truck more stuff around like UPS did years ago. That created a lot of stagnation combined with economic slowdown. I wish only the best for our Purple colleagues!

I am not worrying about FDX until starclipper starts pretending to be a UPS Pilot.

Oft overlooked in all the talk of earnings misses and stock prices, FDX reported net income of $745M for Q1íFY20.
