I was thinking today that I can't recall AUA using any aircraft that would allow them to fly long haul except for their present fleet of A340's and A330's. I do remember OS using A310's about 5 years ago, but before that what planes did OS use to fly to NY? I can't recall any DC-10's, L1011's, 747's, 707's, 767's etc. Or did they even fly to New York prior to the A310 deliveries.

Austrian first became an intercontinental carrier on April 1, 1969, when it entered into an agreement with Sabena, operating a daily Vienna - Brussels - New York flight. They used 2 of SN's 707s, one of which was painted in Austrian Airlines colors.
