That’s really interesting! That being said, this doesn’t really justify a topic.

Repositioning, I assume.

Yea. But it’s weird. Instead of flying from SFO to LAX, they’re flying it from SFO-BUR-LAX

You should post this well kind of(FlightRadar24 Findings | Part 2)

I believe to my knowledge KBUR have been storing Delta 757’s (I think 737’s too not sure), so Delta are probably flying the aircraft from being stored on ground, to back to their hubs for service.

The same as a Gatwick to Heathrow flight for example.

Hmm. There’s only about a 40 minute stop.

This was found on Google to be accurate

the flight number tells me it is probabaly repositioning or some charter

That’s insane at least use a E175
Maybe a 737

Yea. It might be an SFO to BUR charter, but they are using this plane on an MSP to LAX flight rn, so they fly LAX-SFO in the morning, then pick up ppl at SFO, then fly to BUR, drop off the passengers, then fly an empty flight from BUR-LAX

Also shouldn’t this be in #real-world-aviation or something?

IDK, lol. I’ll change it right now.

I have seen this at San Bernardino a little while ago. It is repositioning for flights from LAX for the next couple months.

Definitely worth spotting 😉 Especially it being a 757 at Burbank.
