We consider a class of Fourier integral operators, globally defined on \({{\mathbb R}^{d}}\) , with symbols and phases satisfying product type estimates (the so-called SG or scattering classes). We prove a sharp continuity result for such operators when acting on the modulation spaces Mp. The minimal loss of derivatives is shown to be d|1/2 − 1/p|. This global perspective produces a loss of decay as well, given by the same order. Strictly related, striking examples of unboundedness on Lp spaces are presented.
