She left BFI today. She is aloft. And Flying. It is showing as a non-revenue test flight. Actual delivery ceremony in IAH ?

Can an airline block a flight on flightaware, like the government can?

Remember, this is a non-revenue flight. Believe she is flying as a test or ferry flight. #6864.

united.com does show 6864 from BFI to IAH with the arrival times listed above.

Technically it does not show BFI as the origin, but then under the weather for the airports involved it displays BFI.

the status says 'on schedule' but it should have an estimated arrival time if it is in the air, but I am sure that united could block this if they wish.

Got a couple of sources telling me that delivery did indeed take place and the airplane should arrive at IAH by 10AM CDT. Sounds like delivery ceremony will be in Houston.


That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

They tricked even the most active followers   If the ceremony is at IAH they certainly would want to keep this flight quiet if possible.

There are some other airline ferry/delivery flights showing up on Flightaware out of BFI this morning (Aerolineas Argentina and Xiamen Air both have 738s departing BFI this morning.). The last instance of UAL6864 being used is Sept. 15 for an LAX-SFO flight with a 772. The fact that this ferry flight isn't showing up on Flightaware is interesting and makes you wonder if perhaps it's flying under some other flight number or UA had the flight number or registration blocked.

Flightaware is showing three 787 flights, two from JAL and one from ANA:

Yes. Plenty of private a/c have their registrations blocked, so an airline can just as easily request a similar sort of blocking of a flight number or a/c registration even on a temporary basis (Many private jet fractional operators are classified as airlines.). It's probably not done as often since airlines typically use a block of flight numbers for ferry/test flights.

It was a tip from Chicago Ops, the schedule at 09:48 IAH time is wrong. Trying to get more info.

My United app actually shows some seats in Y+ are occupied. Maybe a glitch.


A landing EVERYONE can walk away from, is a good landing.
