Why would they change the flight number for a flight that's already scheduled?

I'm pretty sure the real answer has something to do with chemtrails, anyway.
How else will they disinfect the population?

I understand that some airliners are still operating carrying belly cargo only; the requirement to move goods via air has not diminished just the movement of people.
That makes sense, but would they still operate under the same pax flight number?

Airlines halting flights, but skies are full of airplanes

I'm a little bit confused as to what is going on with flights being halted, yet flightradar being full of airplanes in the sky... I take a look a couple times a day, and the Atlantic is usually full with the typical flight from Europe, from both Canadian, American and European airlines. I understand...

Re: Companies Laying off.

Only on this god damn forum would there be an argument after the OP specifically laid out what they were looking to accomplish. How could they not be laid off? Simple, management decides not to lay them off. Will they do it later? Who knows. How about you read the Original Post, and carry on. Jesus...

I'm just throwing a random 2 cents here, but if the skydive center wants you, and they can't find anyone else then given the situation that 6 months may be flexible or waived... on the other hand, I don't foresee them having trouble finding people given half the pilot workforce will be out of a job ...

Re: CANADA CLOSES BORDERS - Non Citizens

I think it's a matter of timing based on when those flights left and when the announcement was made and when the rule becomes effective. A ban on non citizens is not a ban on flights... who knows how empty half these flights are. My buddy told me that half the heavies he saw departing were taking of...
