FedEx has ordered five ex-Western/Delta jets for delivery early this year with scheduled service entry beginning late summer/early fall 1996. The aircraft are all 727-247 Advanced, tail numbers N2822W through N2826W. FedEx is also rumored to be studying, along with MDC, a 2-man cockpit conversion of their DC-10 fleet (dubbed the 'MD-10'). The goal of these conversions is to make the DC-10 look and feel like an MD-11. Any thoughts from anybody on this? As old as their DC-10s are getting (20+), it seems investing in MD-11s might be more economical. Comments?
