Hey Guys, As Posted On My Blog. http://denvermovements.blogspot.com/

Do any of you Southwest guys know about this flight? http://flightaware.com/live/flight/SWA7439
Looks Like a Charter Of Some Sort As WN Does Not Normally Serve KCOS (Colorado Springs)


Then I take it this is the repositioning flight back to DAL empty?

Thanks

Aaron

It looks like a military charter from HOP to COS and then an empty flight back to DAL. The HOP-COS flight probably had USArmy troops from Fort Campbell returning to Fort Carson.


On your deathbed you'll receive total consiousness- so I've got that going for me.

That's what it is.

Anytime one sees a SWA aircraft at an airport not normally served by SWA, and it's a weekend, and the flight has an odd-looking flight number, one can pretty much bet their boots that it's a live charter flight, or an empty positioning ferry associated with a charter.

We run lots of charters...

Guys, we see these threads alot. As OPNL has said in the recent reply: If you see a WN jet in another airport that it does not normally serve the chances are it is a charter for the U.S. Military.

FWIW, what OPNLguy said is "it's a charter", not "it's a military charter". WN does plenty of charters that aren't military. That said, WN is the largest provider of military charter lift in the domestic (not international, domestic) market.

We had at least 4 military charters in PIT a few weeks ago.
