UA 2281 SJC-MHT 737-900 Inbound Right Now

Fri Mar 18, 2016 10:49 pm

Hello,

I was wondering anyone had any info on this flight which I can only assume is a charter. What I can't figure out is for what.

The politicians are campaigning else where, it's not a 9xxx military charter, and I don't know of any sports teams coming or going.

Any info would be appreciated. Currently hanging out by the MHT/NH aviation museum waiting for it to land.

I would expect a military charter to have a 9xxx flight number, but I guess a clue would be where it parks, and are there buses waiting to board whoever gets off.

It parked at signature three busses and looks like fire trucks as well.

Seems like I've seen some UA charters with 2000 series flight numbers, too, though.

Could in be a charter related to the current basketball tournaments? I'm not sure where all the games - Men's, Women's, NIT - are being played.

Good find, mjgbtv. That would seem to be the answer.

The 2200 series flight numbers are sometimes used on military charters. Coming from SJC that's likely the case. We had a 2200 series 744 military charter to SJC out of PIT in January.

I can tell you this...New Hampshire basketball has a game in Myrtle Beach, SC on Saturday...so it could be a sports charter.
