Virgin Blue With Different Flight Code?

Hi all,

Quick question I couldnt find an answer to via search...

My friend recently travelled from OOL-SYD onboard a DJ 737, but the flight code was not DJ, instead it was JM, and that was the MAIN flight code (not codeshare).

I was speaking to someone else, and they've also had a different code for a DJ flight that also began with J (and it definitely wasn't Jetstar JQ).

Does anyone have any explanation for this?

Flight was JM566, OOL-SYD, Tuesday 14/10 approx 14:35 local.

Unfortunately he threw his boarding pass out when he arrived at SYD, but he said it was written on there as well, and was announced at the gate as JM566.

JM is the code for Air Jamaica.

Yahuh...and I don't believe JM has a codeshare arrangement on DJ between OOL-SYD? Especially not as it was the main flight code, replacing DJ.

have been at SYD on Sun night flying to OOL when JQ had an aircraft go U/S & they were pushing people onto JQ.

Maybe it was a JQ flight but put a DJ aircraft in at last minute or something similar???

perhaps it's easiest if we work out what flight 566 is for virgin blue...
OOL-SYD only goes to DJ520, so perhaps it was a diversion or delayed aircraft.

anyone know which flight 566 is for DJ?

According to Flightstats, there is no flight operating under the code DJ566.

Are you sure your friend is correct?

He's out for the night, but should we go with JM516? Would make sense as DJ516 is the current 14:05 Tuesday night flight, and its scheduled 14:05 local...
