Flight FCA539X At CWL - What Is It?

Sun Jul 02, 2006 11:38 pm

Arrivals
FCA539X Bristol 15:45

Departures
FCA539X Paphos 16:30

Just noticed these two on the arrival and departure boards at CWL... anyone have a clue what it's all about... maybe the 'X' is a giveaway, I don't know... any help would be much appreciated  Smile

Thanks

Could positioning flights, or transit flights, but if it was a positioner, I don't see why it would come up on the arrivals screens.

Sounds like a positioner, if its coming in from BRS. Normally positioning flights are something like TOM3564P or AEU567P

No it's not a positioning flight, our PFO FCA flight operates on Wednesdays! And they wouldn't operate under exactly the same flight code unless it was a Bristol-Cardiff-Paphos flight.

The flight isn't returning into Cardiff either!

Wierd?
