Sorry for the awkward title. Didn't know how to word it better.

In the 70s, my parents flew from ORY to PEK on Ethiopian. I believe they stopped in Rome, Addis, and maybe Delhi. At the time, Ethiopian was one of the few if not the only way to fly from France to PEK  Nuts

Anyway, that was one flight, on one airplane, with one number.

It was not too unusual, at that time, to fly THROUGH the homebase of an airline without changing plane, and still go on very far (I'm not talking about a little domestic hop at the beginning or at the end).

I don't believe that is done anymore by any carrier. Whether you stop in Frankfurt, Addis, Chicago or Karachi, you get off the plane, and into another one with a different flight number, right?


I've flown thousands of miles and I can tell you it's a lot safer than crossing the street!

This is still being done to this day, but very uncommon. The ones that I can think of are :-

TN 101 LAX-PPT-AKL
TN 102 AKL-PPT-LAX

LA 600 EZE-SCL-LIM-LAX
LA 601 LAX-LIM-SCL-EZE

South African will serve GRU-JNB-BOM as a single plane & single flight number service in the near future.
