    So, UA flight 1501, is a continuing flight from guatemala city GUA to IAH, then onto IAD, however there are some days in which it goes GUA-IAH-PIT or GUA-IAH-EWR. These were not diverted flights the PIT flight was flown on a 737-500, the EWR is flown on a 757, the IAD flight is flown on a 764. So how can 1501 have the same flight number but different destination cities?

    It just can. Airlines can do pretty much whatever they want with flight numbers.

    Your Avatars almost look like they contrast each other in a funny way!!
