   I, of course, have no definitive information but I suspect that the
   original N number (N4713U) ending in 13 may have had something to do with
   renumbering it. We seem to be somewhat schizophrenic with regards to the
   number 13. We have nose numbers and N numbers ending in 13 and row number
   13 on every airplane but no flight numbers ending in 13 or 13xx. Also, no
   gate 13 (or B13, etc.) at any airport of which I am aware.

There's a K13 at ORD.  Flew out of that gate earlier today.
