Incident at Gander Oceanic (Communication navigation surveillance/air traffic system)
2015-08-03: At 1330Z, FEDEX dispatch called the Gander Oceanic Supervisor to enquire why their flight, a Federal Express Boeing 777 200 (N859FD/ FDX10) from Memphis, TN (KMEM) to Paris/ Charles de Gaulle, France (LFPG) did not receive an oceanic clearance. This flight was transiting New York's oceanic area prior to Gander's oceanic area. New York's policy of not issuing an oceanic routing to flights that are not rerouted is what caused the confusion. At time 1400Z, upon contact with Gander oceanic, the flight was issued an oceanic clearance. No further impact to normal operations.
