Southwest


#1

I’ve been trying to track my favorite Southwest planes like “Maryland One”, “New Mexico One” etc. but when I type in the registration in the tail # box it says it cannot be tracked. This happens for all Southwest planes as well. Can anyone explain why?

Thanks

Only selected planes are trackable by tail number. Most of them are either the recently delivered -800s or
the converted ex-AirTran -700s.

…yeah I just discovered that too…I wanted to see if I could predict arrival of some of the special livery aircraft, but…discovered that would probably not be possible…didn’t succeed with any of them…(Southwest or Alaska)

Do you know if FlightAware can update this? Or if there is any way of tracking these planes?

This is not a flightaware issue - Southwest does not provide this information to Flightaware so they can’t provide it.
