China Airlines From MIA To IAH?

Thu Nov 01, 2007 12:50 pm

Checking Flytecomm this AM for the inaugural service of Eva Air Cargo to IAH, I noticed and odd flight. Just below the normal CI flight from BNA into IAH was another CI flight operating from MIA to IAH utilizing a 744. The flight is CI #5393 due in at 1230 or so. Fairly certain this is an additional cargo bird (as CI does operate cargo flights from MIA). So if Flytecomm is right there will be 3 Taiwanese cargo birds gracing IAH's ramp this afternoon, a very rare treat for IAH spotters.

China Airlines does operate a daily cargo flight to Miami, but I think the usual routing is, if I am not mistaken, via Anchorage. Might have gone via Houston for the day for whatever reason.

If you look at flytecomm the flt from BNA is still listed as "scheduled" so i don't know if that is operating today.

The routing is ANC-MIA-IAH-ANC so as MAH said the flt stopped at IAH for whatever reason.

The BNA flt was routed ANC-BNA-ANC

so it appears the first stop at IAH took the place of the normal BNA-IAH-ANC stop
