I was checking the status of a friends earlier red-eye flight and noticed the one after his is being operated by a 767-400ER tonight. Does anyone know any info on the why the swap for tonight. Also, the flight status shows the 767 coming from San Diego which doesn't make very sense. BussinessFirst is almost full with practically all upgrades, and less than 40 passengers in Y. I know sometimes planes get swaped but this 767 and this light of load seems odd, especially since LAX doesn't just have CO heavies laying around. Any info?

I have no inside information, but a couple of things come to mind.
First, the outbound flight might have been very full, or even a charter.
Second, this aircraft might be on its way back from HAECO in Hong Kong.

Someone on FlyerTalk would know...

Don't the jets play the Chargers tomorrow in San Diego?

Maybe this was the plane that brought the Jets to San Diego. Rather than have it sit for two days doing nothing, CO ferried it up to LA and sent it back to Newark as a revenue flight.



Why are people so against low yields?! If lower yields means more people can travel abroad, i'm all for it

That sounds really likely. Either way lucky for the passengers, there isn't a better way to do a red-eye than on a half-empty wide body.

The Jets did fly EWR to SAN today as CO1915, arriving around 6:10 pm. It departed about 7:30 to LAX as CO1930.
