How To Find Aircraft Belonging To Flght No?

Fri Jul 15, 2005 2:09 am

As usual my company handed me a new itinerary for next week's business trip. I always like to know about the equipment the Airlines use for the flights. Is there a way to search for type of aircraft if you only have Airline and flightnumber?
There's still a long way to go before all the alliances deserve a star...

Sure, go to almost any airline's website and look through the timetable. If you want an argueably easier but less reliable method, search for the flight with an online flight-tracker and see what aircraft type comes up. The a/c type can change from day to day though.

Thanks OptionsCLE!

This came out of the search on the United site:

21/7 Fra - SFO UA 801 Boeing747
23/7 SFO - MCO UA 292 Boeing 757
29/7 MCO - ORD UA 1537 Airbus A320
29/7 ORD - FRA UA 940 Boeing 777
30/7 FRA - DUS LH 804 Unknown

29/7 ORD - FRA UA 940 Boeing 777
30/7 FRA - DUS LH 804 Unknown

21/7 Dus - Fra UA 8923 What time is the flight?
I'm guessing it's one of the following...
8:20a DUS 9:15a FRA 1 LH 803 Non-stop 733 0:55
10:25a DUS 11:20a FRA 1 LH 805 Non-stop 320 0:55
11:40a DUS 12:35p FRA 1 LH 807 Non-stop 735 0:55


30/7 FRA - DUS LH 804 = B733

" Fra - SFO UA 801 Boeing747"

Should be flight 901, not 801?

Correct, this was a typing error. Sorry  Embarrassment

Thanks for your reactions. Does anybody know the equipment for the DUS - FRA and FRA - DUS segments?

Sorry 6th freedom. You answered it already. I have just read your questions, not your answers. Thanks for your help.
