There is a Southwest Airlines 737 parked at KLEX (Lexington, KY) - does anyone know why? They don't fly from here.

Many thanks.

NCAA charter, presumably for the Kentucky band and cheerleaders.

Looks like it came in from MDW: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/SWA8618

It's a big 2-day charter trip. I think they end up in SLC.

Ah, ok.

Thanks - not at the airport today but as I'm a pilot people have been asking me all morning.

A friend got excited as he thought that he was going to be able to get cheap flights from LEX to LAS! No such luck then.

Not picking up on ACARS, anybody from WN know?

It's obviously a NCAA charter with the SYR. I'd assume the MDW legs were repo's!
