I was surprised to see in May that one of the US flights to Charlotte (1057 to be more exact) is going mainline on a 737-400. Is this a normal seasonal upgrade for US at SDF? I was under the impression the only airlines flying mainline out of Louisville were WN, AA and DL. Are there any other flights that get a mainline upgrade for the summer?

Without doing a ton of investigation, I suspect this is a Kentucky Derby related upgrade on the first weekend in May only rather than a true upgrade of service throughout the schedule. Many airlines upgrade service or fly additional routes to SDF (and LEX) during that weekend. Another one that comes to mind is DL flying one-off LGA-SDF flights for that weekend only.

Extra lift for the Kentucky Derby, typically most of the legacies have a few flights upgraded to mainline during this period. DL for example has used 757's for several ATL-SDF flights in the past and even CVG-SDF.
