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)

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.

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....

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.

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.

I had something similar in FRA which was very annoying. My first BCN-FRA leg came in late, so I rushed through the terminal etc... and then found myself walking back to the same part of the airport. Sure enough, same plane for FRA-LHR, although not the same seat.

A few years ago I flew LYR-TOS-BOO-TRD-OSL all on one aircraft. It was three different flights with quite some time between each, so when booking I figured I wouldn't have had the same plane all the way. Wrong!

SHA-SWA-SHA on B-5155, Boeing 737-800. 13th/18th June 2010. It was in the exact same trip as my BKK-PVG-BKK trip mentioned previously. 2 same aircraft round-trips in the same trip!

As I don't purposefully seek out registrations (unless writing a trip report) I've probably flown quite a few same aircraft on consecutive flights. With the exception of turnarounds I recall flying LHR-HKG then HKG-BKK on the same CX 747, B-HUB, about five days apart. When we boarded at LHR the APU wasn't working so it was rather warm onboard, then when we flew HKG-BKK the same thing happened, I was in the same seat and remembered a familar looking scratch on the wood veneer in front of me from a few days prior!

The law of averages dictates I've been on BA 747s at least twice each given the number of flights I've taken on them since they came into service, and it's probably not too dissimilar for the 777 fleet, although their routes are more segmented amongst the subfleets of A market, -200s, -300s etc. so some of them I've probably never been on whilst others is quite a lot. I know I've flown G-VIIG at least five times (same seat for three of those) as I've spotted the reg in the galley, a memorable one as I emigrated aboard it back in '05. When you're looking at smaller airlines chances are really high of ending up on the same craft!

I've had a few:

N902AW (HP 757-2S7) flew Phx-Las-Phx
N901DA (DL MD-90) flew Ont-Slc-Ont
N212US (F9 737-201) Oma-Den-Oma
EICHH (F9 737-317) Oma-Den-Oma and Den-Lax-Den

finally, there was the one that forced me to change my logging system:

CN-RGA Jfk-Cmn-Jfk AT 747-428

Prior to logging CN-RGA my practice was that when I flew the same aircraft twice, or more, I would erase the previous instance from the log even if it was the same sector going the opposite direction. CN-RGA presented the problem of being AT's only 747-400 so there was a 100 percent chance i'd fly on it back to New York. Rather than erase my JFK-CMN, i simply logged both flights as one round trip with two different fantasy flight numbers. My logic in erasing previous sectors was that I fashion my log as a fantasy airline complete with unique registration numbers for each aircraft and unique flight and ship numbers, so, of course, since I can't have one airplane flying two different routes at the same time without some kind of connector, I'd have to get rid of the duplicate. Flying CN-RGA forced me to get creative.

I've done AKL-YVR-AKL on NZ, both times on ZK-SUH (744).

These days, QF uses VH-OJD on the QF581/QF582 rotation SYD-PER-SYD, so if I were ever to fly to SYD and back, chances are I'll get the same plane.

For me, I've never had a complete round trip on the same aircraft, but on one trip in 2010 I did end up flying on the same aircraft twice. DEN-MSY and then a few days later LAX-SFO (N521UAEntire routing SFO-DEN-MSY-LAX-SFO).

Since then, I never pre-book the exact same seat on an outward and return journey, just in case!

This has happened to me twice, actually.

Back in 2005 when AS was still flying 739s on SEA-MCO, I got N303AS on both legs of a 3-day SEA-MCO-SEA roundtrip. Oddly enough, I flew on the same ship the year before on the MCO-SEA leg of another trip. Haven't been onboard since, though.

I got N586NW on SEA-MSP and MSP-SEA in June, also 3 days later. N586NW was a late substitution for the scheduled 753 on the MSP-SEA leg as the original 753 had an issue with the #1 engine (the reason for the delay was described as a "sick airplane" by the gate agent  ).

Much easier when your flights use an unusual aircraft type for that carrier. The AS 739s and DL 753s are both niche aircraft, not the mainstays of the fleets.

Also happened on TP a few years ago, I was even given the same seat...

Now that's creepy

Then coming home 5 days later, same aircraft, same broken seat   Wished I'd reported it on the way out!

Aw flip!! If only you'd reported it!

A Skyservice A333, C-GVKI, subbed my TS A310 flight, both ways, DUB - SNN - YYZ in 2006.

And in 2007, I flew Futura DUB - FAO, same 738 both ways, N977RY!

Happened to me a couple of times; I flew on AA B763ER N351AA FRA-KORD and back a few days later in February 2003.

The second time it happened to me was on AFR B773W F-GSQK from CDG to JFK and back in 2006. I even had the same seat on both flights (38A)

Quoting Yflyer (Reply 5):
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.

Do they keep statistics for a/c registrations on specific flights? This would help me a lot filling in past flights that I took before keeping reg info. I couldn't locate any relevant data, that site is huge.



I didn't get a 'Harumph' outta that guy!

In the morning AMS-STN with HV 73G PH-XRY, in the afternoon with EZY to PMI (G-EZYS) and IB to BCN (EC-FHG), and in the evening BCN-AMS where PH-XRY showed up at the gate again.
