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.
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.
My posts/replies are strictly my opinion and not that of any company, organization, or Southwest Airlines.

Quoting traindoc (Reply 8): 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.
