I was searching through flightaware.com looking at MKE flights when I noticed something. Under scheduled arrivals and departures, it shows YX flights that dont exist. For example MEP1111 GRB-MKE continuing onto SDF. Yet there is no aircraft specified and it actually never takes flight. There are bunch of them too to places like GRR, IND, CMH etc. And when you look up the flight numbers on the YX website, it shows they depart on time and even have gate assignments...so what the heck is going on here?

Maybe future flights that were put in too early? Ex: SDF isn't even served yet but it will be

I think flight planners at either YX or RP have some auto filing system and they messed up the callsigns. All these flights are actually RPA and CHQ flights, ex. CHQ1124 MKE-GRB. These started poping up up the day RP starting the new E135 flights for YX.

Whatever flightaware pulls from sometimes screws up the callsigns too, so it may be on that end as well.
