I have been looking at Flytecomm.com and I have noticed that there are alot of charter flights between Chicago and MSP for today(or yesterday). And just this past Sunday there was an AA 757-200 charter into MDW from MSP.
AC has a flight out MDW >A320
WN has two flights out MDW > 737-700s
UA has two out of ORD >735s
Do these flights have anything to do with Hurricane Rita??? Just wondering why so many charters between the two cities.

The Air Canada flight was a one time charter flight by the band U2 on their concert tour. The two WN 737s were ferried from MDW to MSP and then flew some hurricane relief supplies to GPT. There were no UA charters, the 8xxx flight numbers were just normal flights.
