Don't know, but I fond it interesting that the America West plane is going to go to MCI and jetBlue to Parkersburg. AA to DFW.
I'll go out and say a national conference for someone is beginning or ending.
Seeing as AA is in from ATL, B6 from LGA and HP from PHX, you have people coming in from West, South, and East to attend. This is all conjecture, but sounds plausible.

Sounds like politicians to me. They like to have conferences there. But it's not Congress, I don't believe.

I live here in Parkersburg and the only thing I know about is John Raese, who's running against Robert Byrd. I think Byrd might have been in town also, which would explain JetBlue.
Only other thing I can think of is we have an airshow here in town this weekend. A couple of A-10's are already on the ramp and an F-86 is inbound right now from Oceana. That and a bunch of small aircraft inbound all weekend.
I have to set up a static display at the air show tomorrow, so I'll ask around and see if I can find out anything else.

Found out that the JetBlue charter was a charter for the Ohio University football team's trip to NJ to play Rutgers. The runway at OU's field is 500 ft too short.
