Boeing handed FedEx the keys to a shiny new 777 Freighter today, the box hauler’s first of 15 on order. In 2006, FedEx placed what is still the largest 777F order to date, soon after canceling their A380F order due to the Airbus program’s chronic delays.
U.A.E.-based Etihad Airways is further reducing its freighter fleet, as the 777F (39682) it had operated on behalf of FedEx Express in December 2020 is being acquired by the integrator, which now has forty-six 777Fs FAT 005862. FedEx confirmed the transaction to Cargo Facts. First 777F Delivery On September 22nd, Boeing (NYSE: BA) and FedEx Express celebrated the delivery of the world’s largest air cargo carrier’s first 777 Freighter. The world’s largest and most capable twinjet freighter will help FedEx Express deliver more cargo even faster, allowing the carrier to offer customers greater flexibility. FedEx Express Boeing 777F N842FD 'Leia' just landed from Singapore. Now, I would like to know a little more about the name choice. Clearly someone named her daughter after the Princess Leia, the Starwars princess. JetPhotos.com is the biggest database of aviation photographs with over 4 million screened photos online!
Harrington holdem. Following FedEx’s tradition of naming each of their planes after the child of a FedEx employee, the new 777, registered N850FD, has been dubbed “Saad.” Saad is the only son of Kashif Zia, an auditor at FedEx’s Newark hub.

According to Boeing, the new twin jets offer significant range and payload advantages over the MD-11s they will eventually supplant from the FedEx fleet:
Fedex 777 Model
In the FedEx Express operation, the 777 Freighter can fly 5,800 nautical miles (6,675 statute miles, 10,740 km), an increase of 2,100 nautical miles (2,410 statute miles, 3,890 km) versus the airline’s MD-11 Freighter fleet. The FedEx 777 Freighter has a revenue payload capacity of 215,000 pounds (97.5 metric tons), a 37,000-pound (16.7-metric-ton) increase over the MD-11 Freighter.
Unfortunately for New York spotters, the new Boeings will be reserved for long-haul flights linking key Asian manufacturing centers to FedEx’s Memphis hub. And Anchorage is out of luck, too: Unlike the MD-11s, the 777F’s increased range means no Alaskan fuel stops before and after their long hops across the Pacific.
