What SWA Doing In MGM This Morning?

Sun Jun 16, 2002 10:14 am

I found the flight tracker. Southwest flew two planes to MGM from ONT this morning. What was this charter or military charter? Can anyone verify this?

Here it is:

Airline Southwest
Flight Number 4174
Departure City (Airport) Ontario, CA (ONT)
Departure Time 06/15/2002 05:32 AM
Arrival City (Airport) Montgomery, AL (MGM)
Arrival Time 06/15/2002 10:45 AM
Remaining Flight Time 00:00
Aircraft Type Boeing 737-700
Current Altitude 0 feet
Current Groundspeed 0 mph
Flight Status Arrived

And......

Airline Southwest
Flight Number 4173
Departure City (Airport) Ontario, CA (ONT)
Departure Time 06/15/2002 05:25 AM
Arrival City (Airport) Montgomery, AL (MGM)
Arrival Time 06/15/2002 10:45 AM
Remaining Flight Time 00:00
Aircraft Type Boeing 737-300
Current Altitude 0 feet

Anytime on a weekend when you see a SWA aircraft on a segment they don't ordinarily fly, you can pretty much safely assume it's either a charter, or a ferry associated with a charter.
