Aircraft Type = Flight Number

Mon Jun 12, 2000 2:27 am

BA 767 OSL-LHR are being flown by a 767-300.
Does anybody know if there's any other flights where the flight number is the same as the aircraft type?

SAS 737-600

AI operates flight 742 and 747 with 747-200 aircraft.

Also, flight 310 is operated with A310 aircraft.

Little correction: SR332 is the first daily flight, but, as already said, operated with the A332.

What is a small world! I just looked my OAG today just a few minutes before I logged my Airliners.net. I found your new Topic. I thought it was very funny. I found only I read from BOS to MSP on NWA #727 on the Boeing 727. What is a coincidence!!   hahaha

In the US, most airlines tend to avoid numbering flights with the designation of any equipment, mainly to eliminate confusion between traffic advisories and callsigns. Whenever it occurs, though, it's pretty neat - and it just goes to show that some airlines still have some sort of appreciation for the aircraft they fly and that it's not all just business as usual.

now the flight AF 320 is between CDG and US

The opposite is posible as well-
Sabena long had a flight SN747 from BRU to LUX.
Mind you, LUX (Luxembourg), not LAX (Los Angeles).
It was flown with a Emb 120...
It was their shortest flight.

Lufthansa LH744 FRA-BKK operated by B747-400, but in fact LH 737 (NGO-FRA) is operated by A340
