But who knows, they just might get lost and then divert into LPA.....

Yes, but for a long time AS would show lots of international destinations and not allow you to buy a cash ticket. My point was more than AS IT is pretty bad so I don't take anything they do with much confidence or accuracy. Its funny that on mobile if you type in "las" LPA comes up before LAS. Not sure who thought that was good thing haha.

They must have done that for me since I have bought tickets to LPA more often than LAS. Thanks AS!

I saw a SEA-PAE flight on the boards at SEA some months back and I asked an gate agent about it and they said it wasnt a normal scheduled flight and that if you see a 9 in front (ie AS9XXX) then its a charter/ferry flight of some sort.

lolz, it doesn’t even require artificial intelligence at the level of AS IT to display the full names in alphabetical order

remember that we FTers make up a fairly small percentage of all AS booking system customers, and the majority of those other customers probably aren’t as savvy when it comes to knowing airport codes … the lookup function therefore operates on full names rather than three-letter codes

and of course there’s the exception that proves the rule
