When I flew home on NW from SDF last weekend there were 2 A320's parked on the tarmac. I asked the gate agent why they were there and she said they had a couple of charter flights scheduled for later in the day. My guess is they were military charters???

9846 would be a charter flight number, not a regularly scheduled aircraft, even as a substitution. Unless they needed the aircraft for subsitution in SDF and ferried it in, then it would likely use the 9xxx range flight number.
