Question About CO 1406

Tue Jul 25, 2006 1:13 pm

I'm scheduled to fly EWR-IAH-ANC

On the IAH-ANC leg is the flight nonstop? It's flight 1406. I see that on Monday it made a stop in Seatlle and arrived several hours late to Anchorage. Was that stop scheduled, or was it a fuel stop, maintenance, etc?

Our reservation says nothing about a stop...does that change on different days? If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks so much for your help. Sunday it went nonstop...hopefully it will on Friday! Seems like 7hr 17 minutes is quite a stretch for a 737. Do you have any idea why the flight was 29 minutes late leaving Houston? Could that have ben the problem?

I forgot to add that it was due to possible T-Storms in IAH...I edited the post above.

Thanks for your help! Do you have access to the CO systems from home? or are you at work?

I'm at work for this type access, but not available at home. I but do have some access at home for my own personal things.

The 738 is capable of this type non-stop with the 7+hour range but I think that flt. ops monitors the headwinds extra careful as it will be at the end of it's rope under normal conditions...hince the stop in SEA today.

Cheers,
