It is showing as a delay on Flightstatus.

Knowing LGW there is likely to be some shuffling around of limited aircraft options, so perhaps waiting for another aircraft arriving tomorrow to be reallocated to MCO.

Hi, are you able to advise how you found out the Ďpotentialí registration a few days in advance?

Is it just me, or does anyone else find this persistent questioning about just one flight from someone who by their own admission(post 39) is Ďpassionate about aviationí, and an Ďav geekí(post 34), but who seems unaware of the availability of basic info, somewhat concerning?

Goodness no, I do not mean any harm at all!! And I certainly donít want to start concerning people. You may have seen I posted Iím travelling this route in the near future so purely curious to see what reg are operating (I log the aircraft I flown on before, call me sad I know) so always trying to work out the chances of whether itíll be one Iíve flown on before 😂 Please donít take this in a way to be concerned at all, because thatís not at all how Iím meaning to come across! I apologise if I have caused any concern

I think that you have already been told: Only insiders will have access to this information. And there is absolutely no point whatsoever asking for it in advance for your purposes, because (as you have already found out) it can and frequently does change, almost up to the point of departure.

You are not alone in logging the registrations of aircraft you've flown on. But you simply can't know for sure which aircraft you are flying on until the moment the aircraft lifts off the runway.

How about logging them once they have operated, that way you have the facts?

I know, haha, put it that way itís so true that until youíre actually flying it could still change 😅

I honestly don't think it is.

We should all bear in mind that here we have a relatively new member of our flyertalk community who is just overkeen to know the registration number etc. A very enthusiastic AV geek by their own admission so I think we should cut them a little slack.

As for bizarre threads, if you want to see some I know a website where you can read about people flying from the UK to Budapest to then fly back to the UK, then onwards to Helsinki before stopping in at least 2 USA airports before then heading out to Honolulu. Some of them even do it 3 or 4 times a year!

(I honestly do enjoy reading about such TP runs, hat tip to those who find them, share them and post their experiences)
