Does WN have blocked flights to foreign countries?


#1

or is their outsourced maintenance limited to the US (i.e PAE, GSO, VQQ)?


#2

They outsource to El Salvador, but I don’t know what flight identifier they use to get down there and back.


#3

Would it be logical for the origion of the flights to be KHOU?


#4

Yes, or possibly one of the larger stations such as LAX or PHX.

The flight number would be in the 8000 series. Sorry I can’t be more specific. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the flights go to El Salvador.

Are they any SWA flights to (Aeroman) MSLP/SAL in Flightaware’s archives?

Interesting. I thought that commercial airlines only used their company callsign and applicable flight numbers on revenue-generating flights. is that no longer the case?

BL.

I’m not aware that was ever the case. Airlines use flight numbers all the time on test and ferry flights.
