I was looking at our flights in and out of MSY on flightaware and clicked on WN 2906 and was surprised to see the stops this flight makes.

WN 2906 - (Saturday) PVD-PHL-JAX-TPA-MSY-DAL-ABQ-SAN-SJC
WN 2906 - (Sun-Mon) PHL-JAX-TPA-MSY-DAL-ABQ-SAN-SJC

Total scheduled time on Saturday is 15 1/2 hours and is 3710 miles or 3233 nm, the other is 13 3/4 hours and 3472 miles or 3017 nm.

Any other flights like this?

Are those routings on the same aircraft, or does the aircraft change along the route? In other words, is the aircraft that takes off at PHL the same aircraft that ends up in SJC?

Good question, but I am assuming it is as the turns all seem to fit and didn't think WN did aircraft changes on the same flight number like some airlines and I know that the same aircraft that comes in from TPA goes onto DAL so just guessing this is one big flight.

Quoting Dalb777 (Reply 1):

Normally it is supposed to be the same aircraft on the same number, but due to the huge number of 737s Southwest has, various issues like maintenance or whatever can cause an aircraft swap at an intermediate stop. But normally it would be the same, especially since Southwest books a lot of through passengers on flights like these (although people generally don't go more than two stops! I don't even think the website lets you book the whole milk run as far as I know).

OK, did some more checking and no doubt it is the same aircraft.

These are some of the pairings you can book:

PVD-JAX via PHL
PHL-TPA via JAX
PHL-MSY via JAX-TPA
JAX-ABQ via TPA-MSY-DAL
MSY-SJC via DAL-ABQ-SAN
