9E Tail Number Help.

Sat Jan 05, 2013 9:23 am

Hey all. Missed a tail number for my logs from a flight a few weeks ago.

9E 5287 MSP-ATL 12/14/12, a CR9.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm surprised you were on a CRJ for MSP-ATL. I guess it was more for aircraft positioning?

The flight you were on was actually operated by ExpressJet, not Pinnacle. It was ship number 138.

BTW: An easy way to tell which Delta Connection carrier is by the flight number. Here's a breakdown of how the flight numbers are assigned:

Flights 3283-4430: Pinnacle - 9E
Flights 4439-4858, 7362-7431, 7755-7812: SkyWest Airlines - OO
Flights 4869-5632: ExpressJet Airlines - EV
Flights 5680-5857: Compass Airlines - CP
Flights 5868-6012, 7300-7331: Shuttle America - S5
Flights 6030-6172: Chautauqua Airlines - RP
Flights 6184-6297: GoJet Airlines - G7

Have a good day!

Well that'd explain why I couldn't find 138 in a list of Pinnacle's CR9's, hahaha. I thought I just wrote it down wrong. Turns out I got the carrier wrong.
