Hey NP,

I dunno about that, i would think that there are some air saftey issues with you riding in a cargo plane and not being an employee of the airline??? Where did you hear about this, I would like to look into it further, if it pans out it would be a really cheap way to go....I have a friend at FedEx..I will let you know prob tommorow....

Well I have contacted FedEx and it was a very large NO on that tip NP. They only ship cargo. They have unionized employees that are on everyflight, they are the only ones aloud on the plane between destinations.

There are laws that prevent a cargo company from transporting non- employee passangers in their planes.

Sorry Dude

Wow that flight sounded awful. Glad they don't actually do that. That doesn't sound good at all. No shitter! for an eight hour flight. what are you supposed to do? Wear a diaper?

I know that this method can be done by military personel, but as for the general public, I guess it's a no go .

Just check a coule of online air fare search engines and found some flight to London (from Los Angeles) for under $300!

Sounds pretty damn good to me !
