Anyone know anything about this? I thought I saw this 734 flying around yesterday evening about 530pm but it was from far enough away I couldn't tell who it was.

I think AAR does maintenance work for AS, and between that and the oddball 9301 flight number, I'd say what you saw was either a ferry in/out, or a testhop...

AS get's their maintenance done by AAR in OKC. Probably for a D check.

Quoting OPNLguy (Reply 1):
oddball 9301 flight number

The 9300 series of flight numbers are functional check flights.
Once the aircraft passes, then it will ferry to SEA as a 9000 something
flight number.
AAR does checks on both the MD80s and Boeing aircraft at OKC.
In addition, some check work is done at Abbotsford (YXX) in B.C.



First, benzene in my Perrier, and now this!

I saw it as I drove in and taxied out around 1630. It had a big Disney world logo on it and was blue. I think it said 50th anny. on the tail but wasn't sure.
