Default Latest on OJI JS'ing on FDX

With all the sh!t going on, haven't been able to keep up. Especially having been sitting at home for a few months.

Is it allowed domestic? ( Thought I heard back in March that there was a period of not being allowed?)
Process as described on ALPA.org? (It would be my first time on FDX)
I have my Covid beard going, trimmed, but still a beard... I assume clean shaven is a must?
Still catered? Or should I plan on bringing a sandwhich/snacks? Depending on my destination it may be a 3 leg trip, or 2 legs for an airport an hour away.


Thanks

Jump seating hasnít really changed. You have to wear a mask while youíre in the air operation center. And it is captains discretion once youíre on the aircraft. He will still be catered if the flight was due to give catering to a jump seater. I have carried several off-line jumpseaters between Memphis and Chicago in the last month and everything has been ops normal.

Not sure I understand OJI in this context... Guessing offline Jumpseating?

Its relatively unchanged, the folks on the Jumpseat line you call to list on can answer any specifics. On a domestic leg there will not be catering for a Jumpseater so plan on bringing snacks... there is a self serve snack bar in the Memphis jumpseat lounge that has concessions including prewrapped sandwiches and salads for purchase too.

No beards allowed. Only facial hair allowed is a mustache.

We never stopped carrying offline JSíer.

I've been using FDX more often recently to commute since the passenger carriers reduced their schedule. It's been normal so far and a very pleasant experience as always. I board wearing a mask and if the crew tells me I can take it off I remove it, otherwise I keep it as a courtesy. Thanks for getting me home!

Hopefully, you won't get an On the Job Injury (OJI), while jumpseating on FedEx.

My next question... golf clubs?

I'm traveling with my 1 rollerboard, but was thinking about bringing clubs.. Are they allowed or would that be frowned upon as a jumpseater on a cargo carrier?

Optics....
Your obliviously lack or care of this pandemic effect on others by your inquiries leaves me aghast. Iím happy you can gleefully grow a beard and honestly ask the questions on this forum having never used our jumpseat. The privilege you seek is astonishing. Did you even phone our JS admin before posting? Golf clubs, roller board, beard, free food....Are you a Kardanshien?

Iíve carried jumpers with beards in the past. Dispatchers can have beards, right? They jumpseat. Also, we should be allowed beards as well! Itís an attack on manhood! Fight for facial hair rights! Menís rights NOW! Or is it NOM? Join NOM!

maybe Iíve listened to too much political shows lately...errr...news...
