Flight Log Version 1.2: Operators and Codeshares

I’ve updated the Flight Log to version 1.2 by adding codeshares, operators, and fleet numbers to flights.

Not all flights are operated by the airline that advertises it; often, airlines subcontract out flights to other airlines, particularly regional flights. In either case, whether the flight is operated by the advertising airline (i.e., United) or a different operator (i.e., ExpressJet), the Show Flight view now displays this. In addition, if the flight was a codeshare (where an airline sold a ticket on a partner’s flight), this is shown too.

In this example, I bought a flight through American Airlines, but American Airlines didn’t offer a flight from Flagstaff to Phoenix, so they booked me a ticket on US Airways flight 2909, and American sold it to me (as a codeshare) as American Airlines flight 2669. Then, since this was a short regional flight, US Airways didn’t operate it themselves; they subcontracted out to SkyWest Airlines to actually operate the flight under the US Airways name.

Clicking on the operator brings up details on a Show Operator view:

In some cases, I know the fleet number the operator uses for the aircraft, so the bottom of this page contains a list of the known fleet numbers.

Clicking on any fleet number will show details for all flights flown on that operator-fleet number combination.

Finally, all of the operators are now listed on the Index Airlines view, below the airline list:

…I fly on a lot of regional jets.
