Southwest 737-200 Flying LAS-PHX Today?

Sun Oct 15, 2006 2:34 am

http://flightaware.com/live/flight/SWA807 Shows it as a 732 today for some reason... Flytecomm does as well:

Arrival City (Airport) Phoenix, AZ (PHX)

I thought all WN 732's were retired?

All WN 732's are out of service since Jan/05 so I'm guessing this is either a typo or a flat out mistake.

Flytecomm is known for errors in aircraft type. There are no more WN 732's left in the fleet.

Some kind of computer glitch.. Flight 807 is actually operating with a 737-700.

Is it perhaps a replacement registration?

Yes, Perhaps.

If that's to mean that Southwest has perhaps re-used the registration (N-) numbers of the former 737-200 fleet on newer replacement aircraft, the answer is no, we haven't.

That would be immaterial anyway, since air carriers file with ATC using flight numbers, and not N-numbers.

I still think it's some kind of computer glitch, and the fact that flytecom and flightaware both had the same error suggests a common source, namely the ASDI data that feeds both firms...

I've been through Love Field a couple of times lately and I saw a -200 sitting over north of the terminal with the old paint and engine covers on it. I figured they were still using it for crew training or as a ramp queen of some sort. It was good to still see it sitting there, though.

Indeed, they use it for ramp and provisioning agent training.

I had someone check the ATC filing for 807 yesterday, and it was indeed filed as the -700 that it really was. Sounds like the problem is somewhere within the ASDI environment...
