Skywest is flying a Piper PA-18 Super Cub for Alaska?

Looks like AS3310 PDX-LAX tonight is being flown by N188FF, which is reported by the FAA to be a Piper Super Cub.
https://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinq...umbertxt=180FF

Here's the fr24 posting, which says it's still an ER75, but it shows N180FF:

Something's wonky with this flight

It's some sort of error. Skywest doesn't operate any single engine and it would not really be possible to have flown 35K feet nor flown at that speed.

Does anyone have a seating chart for the Piper? I am wondering about upgrade possibilities.

It's a PA18neo, powered by the CFM-LEAP

I assume they don't serve any beer or wine on that flight since they won't have an FA onboard? Or perhaps a cooler with some beverages for self-service?

Whatever you can fit in your carry-on without messing up weight and balance.

Yeah its a hosted bar/cooler, so kind of the same concept as the Emirates.

Reminds me of KS and our flight to DUT...

As a plus, no TSA
