Default FedEx Jumpseating

Anyone done much Jupseating on FedEx? I'm curious how often those seats fill up and how easy it is to get on. Specifically, I'm curious about the Milwaukee to Memphis flight but any info on Jumpseating FedEx would be helpful.

I've heard the jump is almost alawys open, (some aircraft have several jumpseats). Never done it, but http://crewroom.alpa.org/fdx/jumpseat/Default.aspx helps with scheds.

I jump on FDX quite a bit out of EWR. Just give there jumpseat personal a call and get listed and its that easy. They are awesome about it and even suggested that i use them when goin overseas or to hawaii/alaska and what not. If oyu need the number PM me and ill give it to you.

I have had great luck on Fedex when I commuted to JFK. I even had a pilot that called in for two of us because we were running late into memphis to connect and they held are connection about 5 mins. WOW!!!!

My only advice is once you list show up or call. If you no show them you may never be able to ride them again.

If we no show without an excellent excuse (flying, diverted, a/c late arrival-- not sure about flat tires on cars), they take away our j/s privileges for 30 days (1st occurrence). And we have to cancel 6 hours prior to avoid the above penalty.
