    OK, I know a lot of people like to track the plane their iPhone is on. According to the HK Int'l Airport flight schedules the next FedEx plane to take off today is Flt FX 9168 which leaves at 10:30pm HK time, which is in just a few hours. That might be cutting it close.

    The next flight is FX 004 at 11am tomorrow HK time, followed by FX 096 at 3:20p. Then 9168. Rinse, wash, repeat. Those are the 3 FedEx fights from HK. Your iPhone will be on one of them this week.

    For basic flight status you can go here

    For real time status you can go here

    Apple's computers are back up. Mine is now in Hong Kong, I haven't been there since 1969 when I was on my uncles yacht.


    It was a big thing all gray with guns and missiles. :D

    I hope it has as good time as I did, but doesn't stay as long. I was there 5 days. :D
    :apple:

    Let's hope that the FedEx pilots sign their new contract. It would be catastrophic if they walked off the job and delayed iPhone 4 orders.


    Relax. I made it up.

    I wonder whether apple would step in with a few million to keep them working until Thursday.

    They get bounced around in your pocket all day. A little turbulence isn't going to hurt it at all. Anyways the pilots will vector around anything bad.

    I have a friend that works at Memphis International in Airport Operations who knows quite a few people in management at the FedEx hub there. Last year he saw the 3GS's come through. I'll see if he can get a picture of the iPhone 4 pallets when they come in (he's waiting for his too ;) ).

    A tougher one is to locate the UK flight for this. I think there is something like one plane leaving this week to lierge as a TNT carrier.

    Happy Hunting.

    What new contract? Their current one doesn't come up for negotiations until Oct...

    The iPhone 6 might be in jeopardy though!
