I am in HK airport waiting for my flight and I noticed that there is one CX flight with three flight numbers attached:CX 721, MH 9721, BA 4561. The flight is from Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur and then to Penang. This is the first time I have seen so many different numbers on one single flight.
The question is: what is the highest number of flight numbers attached to one flight you have seen? I know two is very common, but three is the first for me!

Theoretically a flight can have as much codeshare flight no. as they want to have since there is no restriction on it.
There are a lot of code share flights with at least 3 airlines selling it. I remember that last year ie. the Swissair flights between GVA-ZRH had Codeshare with JL and AA. As it has been pointed out this happens mostly within Star Alliance, Oneworld etc.
