Random SWA Question Flight 8640

Sun Jul 23, 2006 6:11 am

Hi all- Was wondering if anyone could fill me in on why a Southwest airlines flight (Today's SWA8640 according to FlyteComm) was in Helena, MT today. Was this a charter flight? I was quite suprised this morning when I looked out the window to see a 737 flying past (737's normally don't fly into Helena). Would appreciate any info. Thanks!

Anytime you see a SWA flight at a non-SWA airport on a weekend, you can pretty much assume that it's a charter, or a ferry flight associated with a charter, especially if it has a funny-looking flight number.

This one was a charter...  Wink
