Both UA and AA ran them from DTW to ORD several times a day, and back then they did a full beverage service, unlike what other airlines now do. i.e. DL's fast break or whatever it is called.

Pre-deregulation domestic routes in the US used to get all kinds of widebody service, I guess the airlines were all subsidised and had to provide a certain level of service in return. I know Buffalo used to get quite a few AA DC10s (Detroit, O'Hare, La Guardia et al) and Jax getting a 747 (!) but the NW DC10 to Billings and Great Falls is a new one on me. Wish I had a time machine.

My first ever DC10 trip was on UA from YVR to SEA waaay back in 1976 - must have been all of 45 mins but it was a thrill for me at the time being on such a monster !

I had flown MAN/YVR on a Wardair B707 the "Punch Dickens" where the meal service was filet mignon and for IFE we had Bingo !

I can remember at the YVR departure gate there was a huge illuminated seating plan which I`m sure was for a Western Airlines DC10, they would illuminate the seat rows during the boarding process... quite techy for those long gone days  Smile

Took many of those DTW-ORD trips myself on DC10's. Used to be $44 roundtrip with no Sat. night stay required. You could fly to ORD, take the train downtown and spend the day in Chicago for a small amount of money. I miss that!!

How does Chicago-Detroit qualify as a weird DC-10 route?

Continental:
Los Angeles-El Paso-San Antonio-Houston-Miami-Houston-San Antonio-LAX
DC-10 pub service during the mid 70s into the early 80s

Sun Country:
Scheduled D10 service Harlingen-Minneapolis
Just prior to SY parking these aircraft

I saw the title to this one, and immediately thought the northwest one from jfk-ord-bil-gtf that is mentioned in the first one. That would be different. I live in Billings, and I don't think I have ever seen a DC-10 here. Those were the days!

I think UA also ran a DC-10 from PDX to SEA, and then on to HNL. Not sure about that...flight 33. I know they ran it with a DC-8.

In Sept 1975 there were 5 daily DTW-ORD roundtrips on the DC-10 - 1 each on UA and AA and 3 on NW.

Besides AA flying a DC-10 from DTW to BUF, they also flew one from DTW to SYR. Hard to believe.

In Sept 1975, NW flew DC-10's from MSP to ORD --- 6 times a day.

NW also flew 2 daily DC-10's from GEG (Spokane, WA.) to MSP.

It's sure nice to have a Sept. 1975 OAG.

This service was a continuation of a flight from ORD. The plane stopped in HNL initially and continued on to Maui.

The D10 flights from Chicago to Billings and Great Falls were actually continuing on to Seattle. The routing went something like NY-ORD-BIL-GTF-SEA. There were also flights from MSP-BIL-GTF-SEA on a D10.
