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. -- -- Larry Stone --- firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.interserve.com/~lstone/ Belmont, CA, USA My opinions, not United's.
