Any Different Airplanes In PHX Today?

Thu Jan 01, 2004 5:07 am

Due to the Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix today, any special or upgraded airplanes in/out of PHX today? Love to see some 747's, or even 777's (other than BA).

Happy NEW YEAR everyone!!!!

All the best in the NEW YEAR!!!!

AV8 is not too far off.

I have no idea what ScottysAir was saying but PHX has had its share of charters fly in during fiesta bowl games. NW747 is the one I could remember in the past. I wouldn't doubt if HP is running at least 12 extra-section/charter flights this week into/out of PHX.

Last year we did get 747s - 742s from NW and 744s from UA. That was in addition to TZ L1011s, an Omni DC-10 and various narrow-bodies such as Planet, Miami Air, Champion, and Transmeridian.

The difference between last year and this year is that last year, the Fiesta Bowl was also the national championship. This year it is not. Still, there have been a few charters - TZ L1011s again and a few Miami Air 738s at least.

What about TPA for the Outback Bowl, I saw a Pace 757 and a Champion Air 727 (that was a treat, haven't seen one since the last AA took off into the sunset). At least it is quieter over my house.

I wouldn't think so, but I'm pretty sure New Orleans probably gets extra flights for Mardi Gras. But that's completely different...
