FL 8730 BWI-PHF 11/14/04

Mon Nov 15, 2004 7:33 am

Anyone know the story behind FL 8730 today? I'm sure FL doesn't serve PHF nonstop from BWI. The only two airlines that serve Hampton Roads from BWI are WN and World.
Change is: one airline, six continents!

It's a ferry flight to reposition the aircraft; either for schedule change or a charter.
I work for Southwest, but the views expressed are my own and do not necessarily represent those of Southwest.

It has too be a ferry flight.

The only airlines that serve PHF are FL, Delta Connection, and US Airways Express. And they have service to ATL, BOS, LGA, MCO, ORF, CLT. I forgot a few others.

IslipWN: PHF is 20 miles from ORF. There is no PHF-ORF service. And, when I say Hampton Roads, that includes the entire metro area of Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, Yorktown, Norfolk, VA Beach, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Chesapeake. PHF, NGU, and ORF all serve this metro area. FL serves BOS, LGA, MCO, and ATL nonstop from PHF. DL serves PHF only from ATL. DL serves ORF from ATL and CVG. WN serves ORF nonstop from BWI, LAS, MCO, JAX.
