While taxiing in at SFO last night (5/10), I noticed two BR aircraft, a 77W and a 744, parked at the international gates. After checking passrider.com, it shows that BR has three flights today between SFO and TPE. Is that normal? It seems that one or two flights a day is normal, but I was surprised to see three. Any explanations are appreciated. Thanks!

I'm a bit confused on their schedules as well. I know they have a flight that departs around 5pm(ish) and then the 1am flight. However some days they have two planes parked at the G gates when I drive past at 11pm or so. So on the days when they run the two night flights they don't fly the evening flight? or do they run that (5pm flight) in addition to the 2 at 1am?

Modesto. It was in fact the 2 normal passenger flights and 1 cargo flight as Legacy said. On Tuesday mornings (Monday night) as you saw they have been operating both their pax flight at 100a and 140a,with 1 being a 747. The cargo plane will arrive at all different times. I have seen it arrive in the middle of the afternoon, middle of the night or late evening.
