Is there any website/resource that can estimate/tell you the registration of an aircraft on a future flight? I am flying PHL-MSY on a US a319 in december. Would be nice to know if it was a special paint scheme (eagles, PSA, piedmont, etc.). Thanks!

I'm not sure about that far in advance, but in the airline CRS's i work with, Usair supplies the ship numbers usually a day in advance, if you PM or email me with your travel date and flight number, i'll look it up the day before and let you know, assuming of course someone with better info doesn't beat me to the punch
I could have elite status if I wanted it, but flying the same airline all the time is boring.

Quoting US AIRWAYS (Reply 4): I can see sorting by aircraft # up to 40 days out, so I can check the schedule to see if any of our special liveries will be blocked to fly your flights in a couple weeks.

Predicting an aircraft assignment a month in advance is alot like predicting the weather a month in advance--the longer out you, go the less accuracy you'll get, and the closer-in to travel date you are, the more accurate you'll be.
At my airline, routings are done 1-3 days in advance and are always, of course, subject to change, often at the very last minute.
