    Wouldn't that be a sixth report? And most drivers won't have the hours to work.

    Only time we ever worked on a Saturday Christmas Eve was if feeders were not able to get in on Friday. No such orders as yours here....

    I don't know if it is on Saturday, but my wife says it is on the 24th. Does this sound right to anyone else?

    Being a Saturday, they will only deliver air anyways !

    That being said, air volume will most likely be very high and low seniority drivers may be forced into coming in to help out.

    They are not going to run a full preload on Saturday PERIOD !

    Don't know about that Heff.
    Depends on the weather and consequent backup in the system.
    I could see the 24th being a Ground delivery (no pickup) day too! Especially if it has Merry Christmas on it.

    Last time Christmas Eve was on a Saturday we delivered air packages and anything that looked like a Christmas present.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    There is that pesky thing called DOT hours which would limit who would be available to work. As Hoke said, delivery would not be limited to Saturday air but would be primarily residential. Time and half would make for a nice Christmas present.
