G4 had a few tail swaps today, as a result the retirement schedule, and the final tail number for the final flight, have changed:
Final revenue SFB flight: 11/26/18
N426NV AAY 2126 SFB-ORF 18:45-20:35
N426NV AAY 2127 ORF-SFB 21:43-23:48 (In air as of this posting)
Final revenue LAS flight: 11/28/18.
N414NV AAY 2 LAS-FAT 12:05-13:12
N414NV AAY 3 FAT-LAS 13:57-15:03
Interestingly, I don't see a ferry flight for 414 from SFB to LAS. 415 and 417 are still slated for SFB-LAS ferry flights on the 27th. I guess we will see what happens there.
One thing of significance: If N414NV ends up being the aircraft for the actual final flight, this will be quite interesting for aviation fans here, as this is a former Midway Airlines bird, one of only two that were still operating from the former carrier until recently! This aircraft, a 1989-built MD-88, has served with Midway, Air Aruba, Southeast Airlines, Efata Papua Airlines, Midwest Airlines, and finally Allegiant Air. What a history!!!
