An eery routing to be sure, especially today Nov. 22. I was wondering what airlines have flown this route from Dec 24, 1963 up until DAL could no longer have these flights.

Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.

727LOVER --

I have a Dec 1962 American Airlines schedule -- AA was, at that time, flying 3 daily B-707's between Love Field and NY International Airport (Idlewild), so it's almost certain that this service continued when NY Int'l was renamed John F. Kennedy International on Dec. 24, 1963.

I'm looking for an old Braniff schedule -- I'm almost certain that they also flew DAL-JFK.

Having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a swimming pool.....

American and Braniff were sanctioned to fly that route by the CAB. At the time of Love Field's quasi-closure in January 1974, American was running 707s to JFK, 727s and DC10s to LGA, and 707s and 727s to EWR. Braniff had 727s to all three airports.

Delta offered one-stop flights to JFK via Atlanta, using DC8s and 747s.

Doesn't exactly fit in, but Legend operated 3 or 4 DC-9s to LGA when it operated in 2000.

"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

Why was DAL restricted in what services it could offer? I don't remember the story behind that, and how Pres. JFK was related to it?

727, L1011, MD80, A300, 777-200, 737-300, 737-700, 747-400, 757-200, 737-800, A320. E190, E135, 767-200, CRJ9

DAL was restricted by the Wright Amendment to limiting flights to ajoining states around Texas. This was to make sure most airlines moved to the just opened DFW Airport, even though it would cost lots more money to operate from DFW.

How come WN dosn't press to get that lifted seeing as that is its home airport? Also didn't COEX serve CLE from there at one point? I know they tried to get the authority for it.

To offer flights from DAL to states beyond the ones that border TX it must be on an aircraft with fewer than 50 seats. That is why AA moved some of its Fokers over to DAL to compete with Legend and they were reconfigured with less than 50 seats and as soon as legend was run out of town, the planes got the seats back and AA left DAL.

You can cut the irony with a knife

Actually I believe WN spent quite a bit of time and money battling the Wright Ammendment, but ultimately they lost. Regarding the matter, Herb Kelleher said: "The Wright Ammendment is a pain in the ***, but not every pain in the *** is unconstitutional."

I personally think the Wright Ammendment is one of the most absurd laws in the United States. It is perhaps more fitting to call it the Wrong Ammendment.  Big grin
