Post your coolest Flight Numbers you have been on!

Surprisingly I have not found a thread on this topic! So I thought I'll start one:

You can post a really cool combination of numbers, or just a number that is special to you, or even a flight number that has become special to you for one reason or another. Make sure to include an explanation or even a story if needed

My entry would be on my upcoming flight from ZRH to RAK. In true FT fashion I'll not be flying directly, but ZRH-GVA-FRA-RAK-GVA-MUC-ZRH. On the MUC - ZRH leg I'll be catching the last flight of the day with the really cool flight number of LX1111! How exciting!

I'm looking forward to reading your entries and stories behind them!

Can't top it, but I too flew BA 1. What a trip.

Never flew it, but AY 666 from CPH-HEL would have been a boarding pass to save.

I think the most interesting ones are the 5th freedom flights such as CX888 and SQ1, where they are highly-rated by passengers taking the foreign segment (but it's a pity that I've never taken a 5th freedom flight).
