United Express Tail Number Request

Hi,

I tried the search function, without luck, to find a website someone once posted that lists the tail numbers used on specific flights on specific dates. So, now I turn to the current A.net crowd.

I'm looking for the tail number of the Embraer 170 that operated UA 7722 (Shuttle America) from Chicago O'Hare (ORD) to Indianapolis (IND) on Friday, November 9th, 2007.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I will tell you, but then you have to put me on your respected users list  Wink How do you get a 25 rating?

I use this website but November's stats won't be up for a month or two.

Blackmail's your game eh? Alright, we'll play ball here.  Wink I dunno how the rating system works frankly. It's the most bogus thing on the site, IMO.

Those things are sweet...big jet feel in an RJ. Comfortable, new, roomy, very smooth. Much roomier than the 145's I've been on. I gotta say, bravo to Embraer. Funny thing about the 145's though...the engine that powers it, the AE3007, well, RR donated an example for display to my University. I already got a good luck at it before boarding the CO Express flights. The 145's are pretty nice though. But the E-jets...sexy, very sexy.

hmmmm, one thing I noticed on that website is the airline listings don't have Shuttle America. Would I then just look under United since it is a United Express flight? Out of all the flights I had this week, this is the only one where I didn't grab the tail number thanks to the awkward gate location in IND.

I believe it would be under United.

I know how you feel. So often I am running around from gate to gate trying to get a good look at the tail number.

Folks, let me ask my question here to avoid opening a new thread. I recently started to collect reg numbers of the aicraft I fly.

My general observation for US carriers is that the tail number is usually just 3 or 4 digits from the actual registration. Thus, having just a tail number which is usually better observable from terminal I can look up for the reg number later.

But I also noticed that the tail number sometimes is not related anyhow with the reg number. I recently flew on Comair and took the 4 digits tail number. After deplaning I was lucky to see aircraft's side and was surprised that reg number did not contain either of those 4 digits.

Are there any rules or regulations on assigning tail number to aircraft or it is up to every airline's fleet management policy?

It's up to the airline's fleet management system. For example, here at Chautauqua, on the Continental side of the operation, we have planes that have tail numbers completely unrelated to the registration. Ex. N260SK is 430, N288SK is 447. The most likely reason being that 260 and 288 are probably existing tail numbers in the Continental or Expressjet fleets.

On the US Airways operation we run, the tail numbers are actually letters. When N288SK was flying for US Airways, it's tail number was JRV. Trans States Airlines US Airways birds are TRA-TR*.



There are 3 types of people in this world, those that can count, and those that can't.

Except for AA which is all screwed up, it seems that the tail number is always the registration number. I think of them as the same "N" number. Am I wrong? As for AA, I have used this website to match the tail number to the registration number:

How far do United's records go back? I have a bunch of older flights that I would love to get like:

2/10/2004 ORD-GRU UA 835 763ER
2/29/2004 GRU-ORD UA 834 763ER

No problem. It was a pleasant experience.
