Well, considering the picture was taken February 8, flight tracker wouldn't be of much help.

Probably a diversion or charter.

My guess: a diversion from either MAD-MIA or CDG-MIA.

Wouldnt a diversion be sent to the international terminal?

My guess is its a charter or an a/c sub.

Thats a pretty good catch!!!!!

i never would have caught that!! My guess is its a sub, because people are wokring it in baggae as if its a normal flight, if it was chartered or divert i dont think they would be handling the bags that way.

That 763 is Miami bound AA1715. I don't know if its a sub, but that flight was delayed from 2:04PM to 3:40PM on 08FEB04.
