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): 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?
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).
