Airport With The Most Common Flight Numbers?

Wed Mar 02, 2005 1:33 am

Ok, so this is a weird question. But does your airport or one you know of have multiple carriers flying in with the same flight number? I have found 3 airlines going out of SFO/HNL with the same flight number.
-SFO
SFO-SEA Alaska 357
SFO-PHX/SJO America West 357
PDX-SFO United 357
-HNL
LAX-HNL Hawaiian 1
ORD-HNL United 1
IAH-HNL CO 1

I would suggest that JFK or LHR would have to be up among the leaders, due to their home or most important destination for many international carriers.

A bunch of airlines have 1492 at Columbus (e.g., CO1492 IAH-CMH), 500 at Indy (e.g., CO500 IAH-IND) and/or 1776 at Philly (e.g., NW1776 DTW-PHL). Corny, yes, but who says schedulers don't have a sense of humor?  Smile

Many airlines use 8, 88, 888, etc. for their services to Hong Kong or China. For example, Continental recently announced that its PEK-EWR nonstop will be CO88. I believe Northwest used the same number when it flew PEK-DTW (or vice versa) nonstop a few years back.

Adding to your list, JL 001 in SFO. One of their traditional routes, apparently started HND-HNL-SFO.

The original flight # was not 001 though.
Flown on: DC-10-30, B747-200B, B747-300, B747-300SR, B747-400, B747-400D, B767-300, B777-200, B777-200ER, B777-300
