hmmm... does this mean that FEDEX is ready to order the plane, or it
looks good to them?  I guess I see why it looks good to them, but the
decision will be made based on the price that Airbus can deliver the
plane for.  At this point, I would be suprised if FEDEX ordered it but
it does sound like they might be gearing up to do just that.
