Hey,

Yesterday when taxiing ove to 24L with F9 I saw a JetBlue babybus land on 24L at LAX. When we took off of 24L it was parked at the remote gates on the far west side of the airport next to an AC bird. What was it here for?

That had to be a charter. Looks like it came from MRY . . .

And then it took a really quick hop over to LGB!

B6 has been to LAX once before. Thou under different circumstances. Boy, that was a tense evening:

Actually, B6 landed at LAX before then as well.

B6 manages to end up at LAX every few months, more often during the winter months.

When issues arise at LGB or BUR such as fog, LAX tends to be the preferred alternate with pax often being bussed to their final destination. A few months back we had two B6 A320s spend the night due to problems at LGB.

I would imagine that LAX would be prefered given that it has Cat. IIIb. Still, why wouldn't they divert online to ONT, given that it has plenty of runway?

We might see more B6 at LAX since in the Q2 Confrence Call Neeleman said they are going to have a lot more charters this fall. I guess it is a good thing since they have reduced schedules for the fall why not let the planes make money. I wouldn't mind chartering a B6 plane but the cost probably is high anyway.

Was the plane ferried from OAK to MRY or somewhere else?

Probably OAK, but it could have been SJC.

We have quite a few charter movements over the past few weeks and going through the next few. I never even knew some of these airports existed until I saw where these charters were going!!
