AA Flight Using C182?

I was surfing through flightaware when i found this
http://flightaware.com/live/flight/AAL5293
An AA flight using a C-182.
There a lot of things out of the ordinary with this flight...
-naturally the use of a C-182
-no past history of this flight number
-TBN-STL?

Now the flight number suggests its an out of the ordinary flight, and we all know AA doesn't own a single c-182 and that they've significantly cut flights at STL.

So my question is,
Is this a flightaware error? AA outsourcing to someone other than MQ or what?

Thanks in advance for the insight.

Short answer, absolutely NOT. Flightaware gets the aircraft type messed up sometimes.

The usual flightaware.com glitch. Its not gospel and makes mistakes often. Probably should think carefully before posting this.

Codeshare with 9K (9K also runs MWA, UIN, CGI and IRK from STL).

for some reason 9K flights often show up as C182s, it happens in upstate NY too.

Perhaps when you put in "CNA" thats the default



Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

Nailed it. If you search the route, you'll see that KAP1195 departs and arrives at exactly the same time. The AAL flight number has erroneous data because it's not a real flight, just a codeshare number.

Yes, it's a codeshare glitch at Flightaware.

Check this one out,

Don't think so.

There are plenty of glitches out there like this Iberia ERJ from TOL to ORD
