Most of these are just the mechanics being dicks.

IFF is not availiable on Fed EX planes. It is strictly a military feature which allows a pilot to determine if a long range radar contact is friendly or not. IFF = Identify Friend or Foe

alot of aircraft (military and civilian) use IFF if they fly internationally so that they may be identified as civilians, it was invented by the military to be able to tell what the incoming plane was when they could not see it via radio signals, i have a friend who sells private planes that are equipped.
