While at DEN on 02/01/2009, I chanced upon a United 744 going to Alexandria, LA on gates 30 and 32 of the B terminal. Checking Flightaware.com, this route shows 744 on 01/30/2009, 01/31/2009, and 02/01/2009, but with different flight numbers. I could not find an answer anywhere else, even on United.com.

My questions are:-

1. Is there enough traffic between these two airports?
2. If not, are these flight chartered flights?

Any light on this matter is greatly appreciated.

Nate

1. No
2. Most certainly military charters.

Yep, going to Fort Polk.

There has also been some recent UA 744 flights to GPT (Keesler AFB).

You would not believe how many Air Mobility Command charters United does with the 744. You can bet that there is at least 1 everyday.

At least 2 -400's are staying in service just for the military work. With plans to add some
20000+ troops in Afganistan, expect this business to grow in the near term.
