PHL 747-300

Thu Sep 07, 2000 4:13 am

Hi all,

Does anyone know what happened to the Swissair 747-300 flight that went into PHL-Haven't seen it in a while and PHL needs the 747 traffic, just a BA 747-200 and UPS 747 Freighter is all they get.

Maybe if the merger goes through United will base some 747's at PHL.

Thanks,
G.R.

Hi there, the flight came thorugh JFK, i htink mainly because of the former codeshare between DL and SW...now that that is over, and AF and US are doig quite well in PHL, i doubt SwissAir will come back.

USAirways A320 Incident

Thu Sep 07, 2000 4:22 am

Does anyone have info about a US Airways A319 or A320 (not sure which it was) whose engine caught fire while departing SAN in late August?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks,

If the merger goes through, there will be a flight from PHL-NRT, a 747-422!

Hey Air T85,
I think the Philadelphia flight used to come from Boston, not New York. I used to fly ZRH BOS frequently and the flight used to then continue on to either Washington or Philadelphia depending on the day of the week.
Am I right?

I have an old Swissair schedule (prior to their service at IAD). It shows the PHL-ZRH flight going through BOS.

How often does the BA 747 come to PHL? Thought it was a 777 twice a day...would be great to see a 747 for a change.

Now BA usually has a 742 and a 772 into PHL every day.
