UA
Flight #1 ORD-HNL
Flight #2 HNL-ORD

AA
Flight #1 JFK-LAX
Flight #2 LAX-JFK

NW
Flight #1 LAX-NRT-MNL
Flight #2 MNL-NRT-LAX

CO
Flight #1 IAH-HNL-GUM
Flight #2 GUM-HNL-IAH

Flight #'s 1 and 2 have always been known to be an airline's flagship route. Although not necessarily the busiest, it is still their their bread and butter route. Any other airlines you can think of? I'm particularly interested in international carriers' flight numbers.


Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

For many years AF1/2 and BA1/2 were those airlines' Concorde routes to/from JFK. As of now, at least, they have been "retired," but I don't know if either airline plans to use them again in the future. Maybe when AF starts A380 service...who knows...

Air France and British Airways use to use flights 1 & 2 for their Concorde flights to JFK. It's soooo sad not to see them anymore. Off the top of my head, other 1 & 2 flights to/from JFK are Turkish to IST, Mexicana to MEX, & El Al to TLV. Virgin Atlantic uses their 1 & 2 flights to EWR from LHR.

Lufthansa's flight LH001 is usually one between Hamburg and Frankfurt, though that has occasionally changed: a few years back, I flew from Hannover to Frankfurt on LH001...

So far SQ is the only airline with a flagship flight # that doesn't originate in its home country.

Interesting. Insane

I believe that AA1 and AA2 were designated so because they were the first and second nonstop transcontinental jet service.

In the very early 1970's, I was a DL gate agent at ORD. Our first 747 flight wentORD-MIA, and was named "The Royal Poinciana" (sp?), The Poinciana is a flower that grows in Florida. Nobody In Chicago knew that. We would hand Post the flight number DL Flight 1, The Royal Poinciana, Miami. Yopu would not believe the grief we got from passangers..."They told me this was NON-Stop! Where is this Royal Poinciana, and how long will we be there?"
In Mia they called flight 2 the Royal MIdwesterner. The didn't seem to have quite the same problems we did. Our "royalty" was more demanding I suppose.

I'll check, but offhand I'm betting not.

AirTran has flights 1 & 2:

1: ATL-LAX

2: LAX-ATL

These are the Ryan Int'l numbers. Not sure if they'll change after conversion to 737-700s.

QF does not fly to LHR via LAX. QF 1 and 2 go through either SIN or BKK (can't remember). Additionally, UA 1/2 used to be their round the world service that would be a 744 that DEL-HKG-LAX-IAD and then more places I cannot remember. That was dropped shortly after 9/11

They apparently do not have a flight two. I have taken both AA 1 and AA 2, it's pretty cool to hear that annoucement "Welcome aboard American Airlines Flight 1"

You're right, QF1 is SYD-BKK-LHR and QF2 is LHR-BKK-SYD.
