IB doesn't serve BOS.
Which is good for the people living there.



Where have all the tri-jets gone...

TAP-Air Portugal might have flown them into Boston also.

Ushermittwoch:

You are correct that IB currently doesn't serve BOS. But they did in the mid 80's!

Yeah, I noticed the "had" after I posted.
My bad.

Anyway, I remember my first 747 flight fondly. FRA-BOS in 1982.

:D

I flew (unfortunetly) on a Tower 747 to CDG years ago, but that was a charter

Right now only BA sends a regular 747. In ther summer VS sends one, but now it is a A340-300/600. I also think that LH send one in the summer

LH is flying 747s in during the winter, too. When the spring/summer schedule rolls around, they will replace the one FRA flight with 2 on A340/330s.

Yes, I forgot VS!

Did EA or AA ever bring their 747's into Logan?

Yes, AA and BN both flew 747s to BOS (AA during the 70s, BN during their attempt to operate a European operation from BOS). The IB flight was a DC-10.

In the fall of 1977 (about as far back as my timetable collection goes), AA used a 747 5 times a week to go from Boston-Bermuda.

American occasionally used the 747 on LAX flights during peak summer periods. Braniff used the 747 on European routes. I **think** Braniff might have used the 747-100/200 AND the -SP at BOS, but not sure. One carrier that absolutely DID use the -100 and -SP at Logan was TWA, which used the -SP on the Rome run while using the -100 to LHR. Indeed, the -SP was often used on the tag-on run to LAX. TAP never flew anything bigger than an A310 or an L1011 into BOS. The Iberia run to Madrid was, as noted, a DC-10. One of those crash-landed at Logan. Flying Tigers used 747s into Logan shortly before they morphed into FedEx. LH used the freighter and passenger versions of the 747 into Logan. Swissair used the 747-300, and perhaps Sabena did as well for a short time (before it turned into A330s and A340s). Northwest used the type on European flights, and continued them on to DTW/SP / KMSP), USA - Minnesota">MSP occasionally.

Of all the carriers noted, perhaps the one 'mainstay' has always been BA. From the 747-100 and -200, to the -400s of today, they have served Boston well with the 747 while most of the other European carriers have gone to the Airbus. A close second would be Virgin, but by comparison they haven't been on this planet long enough, and even they are going Airbus for long stretches on the BOS run.

yes, LY used to use 747's at Logan.
I remember once lying JFK - BOS - TLV, in the 80's on 742.
