I noticed today, 1/25 for EWR-IAH there is a full 757-200 flight, CO411 departing at 1:30pm and five minutes later, a 767-400 at 1:35 operating at CO23. However, that flight is only a quater full. Does anyone know if this a charter and/or for what. I don't see a reason why they would put two flights within 5 mins of each other and one be full and the other not.

That's where the A380 will come in handy..  Smile US to Europe and US to Asia flights often leave a few minutes after eachother as well.

Most (if not all) airlines use a four digit number, usually 9XXX, for charter/ferry flights. Considering that these are flights between hubs, it's not surprising for there to be multiple flights serving those routes that depart within a short time frame. I remember when I worked for FL some years back, we had several ATL-MCO flights that would leave in a short time frame in the early evening.

a 767-400 at 1:35 operating at CO23.

I think you mean CO 1991, so yes it was a "extra section."

Indeed.. CO23 is the first DUB-EWR service, and that arrives EWR at 1125 local.

Actually CO23 is DUB-IAH with an aircraft change in EWR. I flew it a week last Saturday so I know that for a fact  Wink

May have been to get some passengers back to Houston from LGA flights that cancelled early this morning from IAH-LGA due to weather. Mostly likely those turned around back to IAH. I know of at least two that cancelled while I was waiting for the delayed PHL departure.

Just a thought for the extra section!

CO charters are 1900-1920s
Aircraft positioning to or from charters are 1930s
Extra section flights (for revenue passengers) are 1940s and higher

I was on 1991 today - definitely not a charter flight  Smile

I had them move me from a LGA-IAH flight that got cancelled, instead of waiting for a late flight from LGA tonight like they originally suggested.

It was an extra section scheduled about a week ago to get the 764 down to IAH that is subbing on one of the IAH-LHR turns for the next month plus. The first IAH-LHR 764 is tonight.
