Has anyone flown the same aircraft on a trip without trying? Last Christmas, due to work schedules, I only had Christmas day off. I flew home for Christmas in the morning and flew back in the evening. I took a Delta MD-90 N908DA in the morning. when I went to the gate in evening, I was suprised to see N908DN was also taking me home. That day it had done a MKE- MSP-LAS-MSP-MKE turn. Has anyone else had that same weird coindesence?

908DN and 908DN would be 2 different machines surely?

I have travelled on the same aircraft on many round trips - mostly AKL-WLG AKL-CHC but also AKL-HKG and AKL-SYD (EK 380)

Flew YVR-NRT on JA 8076 (JL 744). Then 10 days later on the return NRT-YVR the same bird took me home.

I flew Wings of Bornholm twice on their last day of operation on the same aircraft, SE-KCT. But they only had the one aircraft so I'm not sure that counts

N908DN and N908DN would be the same machine, while N908DA and N908DN would be two different aircraft

In July of last year I flew N79011 (CO 777) EWR-HKG and a week later flew N199UA (UA 744) HKG-ORD. Then in September I flew N199UA ORD-HKG and two weeks later N79011 HKG-EWR. So the same two planes on two different trips... In October I flew N76021 (CO 777) EWR-HKG and a week later the same plane back to EWR.

Back in 2006 I took a trip to Germany on CO -- my routing was SMF-IAH-EWR-HAM and FRA-EWR-IAH-SMF. This was before I started logging all my flights. Years later I learned about all the detailed statistics on bts.gov, so I decided to go back and fill in the details on my flight log. Assuming I got the flight numbers right, I was actually on the same 762 for IAH-EWR leg and the FRA-EWR-IAH legs -- N76153.

Yes, and it's rather annoying:

B-2385, A340-300 of Air China which I LHR-PEK-LHR with 10 days in between.
CC-CQC, A340-300 of LAN Chile which I flew MAD-FRA-MAD with something like a month in between.
A7-BBH, B777-200LR of Qatar Airways which I flew DOH-GRU-EZE-GRU-DOH with three weeks in between.

Plus several other times on narrow bodies.

Yes, Flew NZ 767-300ER AKL-SYD in January (ZK-NCI), and flew the same bird back 10 days later, and in the same row on both flights (I hadn't requested seats on any of the flights). The very next day I flew JQ AKL-DUD on VH-VQF and the same bird was waiting 3 days later to take me to AKL

A couple years ago, I flew LHR-OSL-EVE, and then returned the same way (EVE-OSL-LHR) a month later with SAS.

All of the legs, except OSL-LHR was on LN-TUL, which is very coincidential (so I had 3 flights in a row on the same aircraft). I made a comment to the FA about it on the third trip as I boarded, and she just seemed to think I was surprised at flying a 737 3 times in a row....

EK059 DXB - HAM and a few days later EK060 HAM - DXB, both on 773 A6-EMM. This was surprising as I had previously been advised of an equipment change to a 772 for the return leg.

Has happened twice this year - flew Air Koryo PEK-FNJ on Il-62 P-885 and a week later it was the same machine to fly me from FNJ to SHE. Was particularly unexpected as the machine was subbing for a Tu-154B. And last week flew STN-AMS for a couple of days to visit a friend, and both ways had G-EZFF.

Because, as an enthusiast, I prefer to fly on different registrations. I don't spot planes, but enjoy flying as many registrations as possible.

I managed to catch Midwest's N914ME on two separate OMA-DCA-OMA trips in February and July 2006 for four consecutive segments. And while they weren't consecutive, I've flown about a dozen other legs on that aircraft!

I agree with this. There have been a few times for me the same machine has turned up for the second leg, and it has annoyed me so much that they have stuck in my memory:

LHR - ORD - LHR in September 09 on G-YMMO - same seat (04E)
LHR - NRT - LHR in December 06 on G-BYGF - same seat (64K)
LHR - MIA - LHR in May 06 on G-CIVY
LHR - GRU - LHR - GRU in July/Aug 08 - 3 sectors all on G-BYGA, the latter two both in 64A

And a random one where G-BNLN took me home from GRU on 6 March 2008 then a week later took me to JFK

I connected on AF a couple of years ago GVA-CDG-HAM (A319 or A320). The GVA-CDG flight parked at a remote stand requiring a tedious bus to the terminal, then a long wait to clear security, and after 45 minutes or so, another tedious bus trip to the aircraft. Found myself reboarding the same aircraft I had just got off an hour earlier, and with the same crew.

That happened to me as well this year with Cimber Sterling (the day before they ceased operations). I got off SE-RIA in CPH and after two hours I was bused again on the very same plane and same crew. It was pretty funny.
