CAL9108 LAX-LAS 18SEP/10 - Is This Legit?

I checked Flightaware around 18:55 yesterday and noticed that China Air has a scheduled flight from LAX. I am aware that Flightaware does make mistakes, but I was curious if this was a charter or something? It would be pretty cool to see their equipment out here.

Code-share flight with DL if I'm not mistaken.

You are quite mistaken. The only flights in that neighborhood are 4922 and 4834, which leave at 1427 and 1805 local, respectively.

The only flight by a US airline that codeshares that is anywhere near that departure time would be AA741.

Maybe it was a cargo flight?

Looks like a charter flight number to me. But looking at flightstats it shows the airplane type being a CRJ9.

Since when do code shares come up on the tracking sites ? There can only be one operator, regardless of how many carriers are listed as code share. If it's operated by Skywest, it should be SKWxxxx, even though multiple carriers may have their IATA codes for the flight.



My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

I don't know of any airline where a 9000 flight number isn't something irregular (diversion, repo, stub originator, charter, etc...). Last night had really bad fog at LAX, perhaps that had something to do with it.

Hmmm will have to monitor this for sure. LAX shows 63 degrees currently broken. Doubt weather is a factor. Interesting indeed!

Could this have been a Continental ferry flight? They use 9000 series numbers for such flights. On Flight Aware, they use COA for Continental, but many others use CAL. Just a thought.

All of Continental's flights are denoted as COA in their flight plans. CAL is China Airlines.

To CWAFlyer, I was trying to say that maybe Flight Aware used the wrong airline code: CAL instead of COA. Sorry if I did not it phrase it well.

Flightaware is obviously messing up something.

And it turns out to be Skywest#4631.

Most Ryanair flights operated by Girona-based aircraft operate 9XXX flight numbers, I believe.

Ryanair has indeed tons of 9XXX flight numbers. Air Berlin has a lot of 9XXX flight numbers as well.
