I've also had Etihads A6-ETF twice

Forgot about one occasion flying MAN-DXB-BKK, but this was before I started keeping records.... Flew MAN-DXB on one 777 and the same 777 was doing DXB-BKK .After boarding departure was delayed due to a tech problem. Eventually we taxied out for take-off, but pilot still wasn't happy with the aircraft, and we were sent to a remote stand before eventually being told we would be changing aircraft....

Arrived in Bangkok about 5 hours late.

I don't generally track regs but I do know the I've been on G-RAES four times over the last three years all between Boston and London. I have a total of about 30 roundtrips on the AA A321Ts between Kennedy and SF/LA so I've been on at least a few of those multiple times as well.

Just got back from my second trip on Iberia's EC-LXK A333 today MAD-MIA after flying it MIA-MAD back in November 2016. Coincidentially the MIA-MAD outbound of this trip was on the EC-MIL A332 (Madrid-Tokyo promotional livery) which I had also flown on MAD-MIA in November 2016 on the same trip where I also flew on EC-LXK! The same two registrations twice in a row.

Other double regs that I can think of are IB's EC-JNQ A346 (MEX-MAD and BOS-MAD), EC-JCZ A346 (CCS-MAD and MAD-MEX), and AA's N837NN 738 (OneWorld logojet) on MEX-MIA and MSP-MIA.

A few times I have!

I have flown the BA 772s G-YMMB and G-YMMD a coupe times between DEN and LHR.

And the other is UA 739 N69819 which I flew on for BOS-DEN two times within the same month.

Other than that it does not appear that I have flown the same frame more than once, at least according to my logbook. But for someone who does not fly often I am impressed that this has happened.

I fly frequently from SFO to EWR on UA which uses a dedicated subfleet of 757s with 28 J seats on a majority of flights on the route, so flying on he same plane happens quite frequently.

In the past 12 months I've flown on N502UA 7 times - kinda cool as it is the oldest aircraft in UA's fleet, entering service in 1989.

I've flown on several of WS B732/736/737/738 and Q400's twice or more. Same with some of LH A321s, BA B742s as well as KL MD11s and B767s.

On my last trip earlier this week, I had the same AC A320 on my YVR-YEG segment as I did from YLW-YVR 2 hours before.

Happened quite often with me.

Back in the days when I was a struggling journalist with an interest in aviation, i went out of the way to try and snag a widebody on domestic runs. For some reason, I got VT-EHC 4 times out of 5 on different routes. From BOM to COK, BLR, MAA, HYD and once to SIN.

VT-JNG was another airframe - >10 flights (lost count).

I've flown on MU's former A346 B-6050 multiple times...including on an entire roundtrip PVG-JFK-PVG (inbound and outbound were about a month apart). I've probably been on MU's other 346s more than once.

Flew on CA's former 744M B-2468 twice...PEK-SFO and JFK-PEK.

Flew on KE's 744 HL7472 twice, both JFK-ICN.

Flew on Tailwind's C208 Caravan Amphibian N208JP twice...both BDR-QNY.

It is sad to know that so many of the aircraft I've flown on in the last 18 years are now retired or scrapped. The only ones for which I wrote down the regs for that I can still find flying are N208JP, 9V-SWL (77W) and 9V-SKF (388)...and I think KF is probably going to be retired soon.

It's happened to me three times on commercial airlines.

The first was N76153, a CO 762. I flew on it on IAH-EWR on my way to Germany back in 2006, and then ended up on the same plane for the FRA-EWR-IAH return trip. This was before I kept track of registration numbers, so I didn't even realize it was the same plane until years later when I went back and looked up the tail number in the BTS database.

I was also on N18220 twice, a CO 738. The first time on SMF-IAH in 2007, and then on OAK-IAH a little over a year later.

Then in 2008 I flew on N975AS twice, an AS MD-83. Once on SMF-SEA and then on SEA-SMF the following month. That was when the MD-80s were almost gone from their fleet and they only had around six left, so chances of getting the same plane twice on one of the few remaining MD-80 routes was fairly high.

I also used to work for Intel and flew on their corporate shuttles many times, but since their fleet is only six planes and I flew on them many more than six times, mathematically I must have flown on at least some of them more than once. And in fact I've been on all of them more than once.

It's happened to me a few times, especially on short trips with U2 where one particular aircraft might operate the same route throughout the weekend. Sometimes I end up on the same aircraft in the same seat on the same route, and other times my connecting flight happens to be operated by the same aircraft. In some cases, I've also flown on the same aircraft with different airlines.

Re: Ever fly on the same plane twice?

Tue Apr 11, 2017 4:42 pm

I've been on several aircraft due to work at another carrier in the past but in recent years I've flown the following twice on paid tickets.

G-LSAC a 757-200W that's an absolute beast with a distinctive roar
G-GDFC Jet2's first 737-800W
G-GDFL 737-300W. The winglets make a huge difference, especially off the short BLK runway

All Jet2 aircraft, plus single flights on several others. I'm a fan of LS! Looking forward to trying the new 738W when one turns up on my booked flight in the future.

My first ever 787 apparently liked me so much that it wanted to fly with me again. Admitedly, XiamenAir didn't have a super big selection (I think it were only 4 different ones at that point) but still only a 25% chance.
Was on AMS-XMN and XMN-AMS, their only longhaul route back then if I remember correctly

To the best of my knowledge only flown on the same plane twice once and that was in the days when BA had mystery days out when you turned up at the airport and were given return tickets to a European destination for a day out - on one occasion I did this and the mystery destination was Amsterdam - but the return flight was only about 90 minutes after arriving at AMS - so we deplaned passed through border control into arrivals and checked straight back in [pre-internet check in this was] and boarded the plane we had just arrived on an hour or so earlier. My old records don't record the registration but it was a B757.

Two friends of mine flew MAN-LGW-DBV also with BA - they deplaned at LGW took a bus to domestic arrivals then cleared security etc charged round the airport [the MAN-LGW flight had arrived quite late] only to re board the plane they had just arrived on from MAN. Again no registration details sorry but it was a B737.

Yes four or five different times on three different airlines. Having difficulty finding some tail #s because of Flightdiary being purchased by Flightradar24. I suppose I can try the non mobile version.

This past weekend I flew TSA-MKG (Taipei Sungshan to Makong) Friday, returning Sunday. Not only did I get the same aircraft, I actually got the exact same seat for both flights! Crew was different though.

Virgin Atlantic used to have a single 747-100 "Spirit of Sir Freddie" that was used most commonly on BOS-LGW, so I flew on Sir Freddie several times. Before VS, I used to fly Pan Am and encountered Clipper Kit Carson more than once.

I flew last week connecting with TAP in LIS.

I disembarked to see that my next flight was in the same gate. So not only the same plane in the same day but also the same crew (not the same seat though).

Last year I flew with Ryanair to PRG for a weekend and it was the same plane back and forth. So I flew the same plane on two consecutive days (Saturday morning and Sunday evening). I only noticed it in Flightmemory (old version!) since they updated automatically registrations and noticed the same in the two consecutive flights.

Those are the ones I know for sure, but I don't usually look at regs.

These two were particularly hard to avoid for me, and were flown countless times:
UR-GAC : ... l-Airlines
UR-BVY: ... t-Airlines
The latter one especially -- with a terrible seat pitch, and uncomfortable seats, I still remember walking out with a leg pain after an hour or 90 mins of flying...
