Ok, so this is a weird question. But does your airport or one you know of have multiple carriers flying in with the same flight number? I have found 3 airlines going out of SFO/HNL with the same flight number.
SFO-SEA Alaska 357
SFO-PHX/SJO America West 357
PDX-SFO United 357
LAX-HNL Hawaiian 1
ORD-HNL United 1
IAH-HNL CO 1

A bunch of airlines have 1492 at Columbus (e.g., CO1492 IAH-CMH), 500 at Indy (e.g., CO500 IAH-IND) and/or 1776 at Philly (e.g., NW1776 DTW-PHL). Corny, yes, but who says schedulers don't have a sense of humor?
Many airlines use 8, 88, 888, etc. for their services to Hong Kong or China. For example, Continental recently announced that its PEK-EWR nonstop will be CO88. I believe Northwest used the same number when it flew PEK-DTW (or vice versa) nonstop a few years back.
