I once flew BWI-DCA on a Piedmont YS-11. Took about 15-20 minutes or so. Anyone else?

I flew EWR-JFK (via Downtown/Wall Street Heliport) on PA. That was scheduled helicopter service. Does that count?

I think that CO Express used to have flights from IAH to EFD. I want to say that planes as large as the ATR-42 were used.

Indeed they did. Can't recall when it stopped but I was booked on it about 10 years ago as the second leg of a journey....then my plans got canceled, so I never made it. Quite why I was booked on such a connection I can't remember.

BA (or was it BCal) used to operate a helicopter service between LGW and LHR many years ago. Not sure if you could book it as a flight or whether it was just for Business/First transfer passengers.

Did someone (UA??) fly SNA - LAX at some time? Not precisely the same city but certainly the same metro area.

Yes, and also between HOU and IAH, in the mid-90s. The flights were free, if you made a connection at IAH, and earned you 500 OnePass miles

Yes, I deadheaded on it several times. I believe it was on a DC 9-10 for a while.

I once was on CO MSP-EWR and the flight diverted to LGA due to wx issues at EWR. The plan was to wait out the delay and then take off for EWR. I asked if I could leave the flight at LGA and the crew was cool with that. They got my bag off the plane and I hopped a cab into Manhattan.

I once flew BWI-DCA on a B738 which took 15 minutes (at an altitude of 7,000ft.). Our a/c was diverted to BWI since both DCA and IAD were closed due to weather.

In 1958, flew on United from OAK to SFO. Part of a looong flight that routed SEA-PDX-OAK-SFO-LAX. I was only 8 at the time, so all the takeoffs and landings were very exciting for me. We had started at YVR, on a UA flight that routed YVR-BLI-SEA for our connection. My mother was so tired by the time we got to LAX, that she paid extra for a nonstop LAX-SEA on our return. Sorry, getting off the subject.
I can't really remember the OAK-SFO part of the flight. Could not have been more than 20 min across the bay, though.
Cheers,

I believe this was operated as a tag by both Pan Am and United at various times, sometimes with widebodies.

FLL-MIA has had lots of service, even with widebodies. I believe OAK-SFO has as well.

I have, but not in one flight. I had to get from SVO to VKO and it was cheaper to fly via LED than take a cab.

I flew MIA-FLL on a Braniff 727-200. I boarded in MIA for DFW, and the flight stopped in FLL on the way to DFW. It was a 7 minute flight.

BA (or was it BCal) used to operate a helicopter service between LGW and LHR many years ago. Not sure if you could book it as a flight or whether it was just for Business/First transfer passengers.

It was a joint collaboration between the BAA, British Airways Helicopters and British Caledonian and operated between 1978 and 1986. I believe that anyone could book a flight, although could be wrong. I certainly remember as an 11 year old in 1978 trying desperately to persuade my Dad to book us a trip on it! For some reason, a fare of £40 return sticks in my mind, although again, I could be wrong.

And then of course there was Westward Airways, who operated a shuttle service between LHR and LGW during 1969/70 using a BN Islander. Now that would have been a fun flight!

I think it was called "Pride Express" or something like that. It was flown by a DC-9-10 in the mid 1980s.

Can't recall widebodies on SFO-OAK except possibly as ad hoc substitutions, and I'm fairly sure Pan Am never operated that route. Several other carriers certainly did including UA, AA, TW, including types as large as the DC-8 and 707.

AFW-DFW on AA narrowbody once as a weather diversion until DFW re-opened. That the weather was localized enough over DFW to allow landing at AFW was surprising. That I was actually closer to home than when landing at DFW was bloody frustrating!

Yep, ExpressJet flew ATR's, E120's, and last was E145's. I needed a few segments at the end of the year a while back to make a higher level in Elite status so made the trip from IAH-EFD-IAH.

In the mid/late 80's Evergreen flew DC9-10's between IAH and HOU, IIRC it latched onto the Houston Proud slogan, just don't remember if it was an Evergreen call sign or they had their own as falstaff refers.

CO also had an early morning flight that would do HOU-IAH and then continue on to either EWR or LGA before they started the HOU-EWR service with B733's, didn't last very long however.
