At PHX, STL. Just wondering what the reason was, charter maybe? Anyone know what for? Thanks

There are some pictures also of UA B747-400 at Lincoln, Nebraska... yearly charters taking Husker fans to bowl games.

I have no idea for STL, but if it was at PHX most likely it was for the Fiesta Bowl

The PHX one has to deal with the massive loads of fans coming in for the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, it is a charter...as for the STL one, I have no idea...I would say that it was for an NFL game but the Rams were in Philly that weekend and AFAIK they do not use UA so that one is not plausible...

Yeah, the UA 744 was here for the Fiesta Bowl. The past three days have brought the most interesting traffic to PHX that I've seen since I moved here in May: UA 744s, NW 742s/DC-10, TZL1011s as well as 722s from Planet Airways, a DC-10 from Omni Air, a Sun Country 738 ex Transavia with part of the livery and Dutch registration still remaining, and Miami Air 738s. I've probably even left some off since these are just the ones I saw. This weekend is shaping up to be good as well since everyone who came here has to get home somehow.

I read other topic about Rose Bowl. There was a UA 744 flew today LAX-OKC. Where UA 744 flying out of OKC to?
