Does anybody understand why this is happening? haha flightaware.com/live/flight/FDX1311 April 9, 2012


Seems like they fly that route in case there is extra packages that wont fit on the planes out of ELP & TUS as that is where they sometimes divert to.


Yep, called sweep flights and also to cover the area on the way to MEM in case an aircraft goes out of service somewhere in that area.
