Default MD Flying

Just curious what MD flying at FDX looks like these days. How much intl vs domestic? What's the plan for replacing the MD? More 777s?

On the international side, itís like D day... the MDs are the Germans and the 777s are the allies.

Oct Capt bidpack had 276 regular lines with 98 Intl (not counting 9 GDL and SJU lines). 21 single departure Intl lines.

MD-10s being replaced with 767 (and a 757 chaser sometimes). MD-11 becoming more domestic with more 777s and 767s on the way. Supposed to keep the 50+ 11s flying for 10 years more or so. Rumors about A330 replacing them.

Percentage-wise (which is all that matters if youíre in the seat) itís about the same in the MD as it was 10-12 years ago. Roughly 35% of the lines are true international (excluding Mexico/Canada/SJU). There are fewer overall lines but there are fewer overall pilots too. If youíre in the seat your options are more or less the same as theyíve always been.
