ATA 757 At DCA Today (5/7)

Mon May 08, 2006 8:53 am

Anyone know why there was an ATA 757 at DCA today? Landed at about 6:33 pm. Is it a seasonal thing or just a fill-in for one of their 737s? Or maybe a charter flight? I didn't catch the reg. number. I left at about 7:45 and it was still on the ground.

It's operating 4291 DCA-MDW; it must have come in as 4294 from MDW. I'm guessing they had a full flight and subbed it for the -800. I've noticed that they've done it a few times before.

I did notice that they ferried an airplane (-8) HOU-SAT a week or two ago, presumably for MX work. They could just be short an 8 somewhere..

Maintain 2300 until Boiler, cleared for the VOR-A approach, report BATLE inbound..

For anyone interested, TZ is ferrying a 752 from IND-HOU. Presumeably to take out 4234 HOU-LGA; looks like 4233 was cancelled today.
