In my case that would be Aerolineas Argentinas, in December 1987, from Amsterdam via Paris Charles de Gaulle, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro to Buenos Aires (and back) with a 747-200. Then I also connected with Austral from Buenos Aires Aeroparque to Bahia Blanca. Hell of a trip (literally...)
That is an awesome routing! What types of aircraft were used and what year?
Thanks for posting.
The Monarch flight was operated by a 757-200. Seemed to take an eternity, but I remember it well as it was my first flight across the Atlantic. 1995 I think. Still have my passport with the "BGR" stamp in it.
The Britannia flight was a 767-300 and was in 1999 I think. A VERY long day as I had to fly LHR to MAN to connect to the flight going back down to LGW, a total pain in the ass. It was back in the days when BY was still using MCO and I remember not leaving the aircraft on the way out at MCO as we were running a little late. We were also parked next to an El Al 747-200. Also, we landed over the beach at PVR, which is quite rare I believe. Return flight was delayed unfortunately... about 10 hours. Such is life.
All my life, I've been kissing, your top lip 'cause your bottom one's missing
