Finding An Aircraft Type On A Route

Thu Mar 01, 2007 11:14 pm

I would use the search feature, however it appears to be malfunctioning.

I know people on here can find out what specific aircraft is used for a route someone plans to go on to a destination

However, im not sure of the website this information can be gained at for the average joe without having to pay to sign up to anything.

Any ideas?

Well, apart from Flight Trackers, doesn't your airline website or itinery show aircraft type??

Call the airline and ask perhaps??

...or do you mean actual aircraft...as in registration number/tail number ??

If you look further down at the Thomson aircraft type thread, someone has the details there for a certain flight. All i mean is the aircraft type operating the route. Excel apparently dont want me to know when i called up earlier.

As Bond007 has mentioned, there are several free flight trackers that are available by just doing a quick google search. In additon to this, most airlines have information on their website in regards to equipment used on a specific route. I wish you luck in finding out what you need to know  Smile

Cheers.

It's reliable and easy to use.
