A while back i remembered looking on the IND flight information display and it showed UPS operating flights to Cancun. Did they in fact operate flights to CUN mixed in with the cargo flights? or am i just imagining things??  Big thumbs up


The next generation of aircraft is just around the corner!

there was a brief flirtation with pax ops on weekends with some 727-100 QCs,that had palletized seats around 2000,parked next to them at PIT,the boys in brown liked the change of pace,but the bean counters didn't.


the rumble of round engines is like music to me,likewise the thunder of thr JT8D

Yes, UPS did these flights and would have continued if the aircraft could have taken more passengers from what I understand.

The venture was mildly successful but the 727-100 could not hold as many passengers as the charter companies would like.

I think it would have been great to retrofit a DC-8 and put 'er on some charters....

There is only one problem with that:

The DC-8s don't have windows.
