ATL: DL L10
BDA: DL L10
ORD: AA D10, UA D10, NW D10, TW L10
DFW: DL 767, AA 767
DEN: UA D10
FTL: DL L10
BLD: DL L10
LAX: UA D10, AA D10, TW L10
MSP: NW D10
YUL: DL L10
JFK: TW L10, TW 747
LGA: EA AB3, DL 767
EWR: NW D10
MCO: DL L10, EA AB3
PHL: EA L10
STL: TW L10
SFO: TW L10, UA D10
SJU: EA AB3
IAD: NW D10
PBI: DL L10

Now, this does not included other services, before and since!

NW IAD DC-10 continued on to SEA flew it several times and DTW at times recieved NW DC10's and B747's. In the early 70's SFO UA morning flight was a 747 that continued on to HNL

AA had DC10's to both BUF and DTW at one point.
EA often had L10's into ATL and MIA
DL had seasonal L10's into PBI, TPA, and MCO
As posted, CO flew the D10 to DEN.
I believe NW had occasional scheduled D10's to both CLE and TPA

Also not to be picky but at one time EA's service to SJU was operated by an 1011

EA had L1011s and A300s out of BOS to MIA, SJU, LGA, EWR and other cities over the years - in the early 1980s, the BOS-LGA shuttle was operated by the A300B2s (ex-IranAir aircraft - strange huh?).

CO did fly DC10s for a short period of time on the BOS-DEN route.

TW flew L1011s and 767s to ORD, STL, LAX and SFO, its likely that 747s flew the transcon flights out of BOS in the early 1970s.

NW had DC10s on the BOS-Detroit route, when BOS was a transatlantic gateway for NW.

I am sure there are more, these come to mind.

I have flown on the Delta 767-200, 767-300, and L1011 between CVG and Boston.

In addition, TWA used to fly the 767-300 from Boston to JFK.

It's not really domestic, but Delta used to fly the 763 from Boston to Montréal (a route that I found very strange.)

The BDL/BOS DL service with L10 was a stop on BDL/BOS/BDA/BOS/BDL.

As late as 1996 American used to fly 767-200's between LAX and BOS which would go onto/come in from London Heathrow.

At times American will use an Airbus down to San Juan or Miami from Boston, though this was more common in the late-90's.

I pulled up my May, 1985 AA timetable:

LAX-BOS: D10 (2)
ORD-BOS: 767 (1), D10 (2)
DFW-BOS: D10 (2), 767 (1)

On that same "random point in time" theme...

At one time there was at TW L10 EWR-BOS (early morning flight).

All the way up till around and after 9/11, AA and UA were flying 767s on BOS-LAX. A sad thing to remember is that both 762s that hit the towers were flying BOS-LAX

Here's a little gem that popped up a few times: TWA's 747-SP (yep!) on a BOS-LAX routing. The plane servicing the route would come in from Rome.

Another: World Airways DC-10s from Newark/BWI and Oakland

I questioned the BOS-BUF route....I think AA discontinued this route around '72-'73...before that, it was double-daily with a 707.

AA served BUF with a D10, but not from BOS, it was LGA.
2 of the 7 daily flights...the rest were 727.

You are correct. But as of June 1 1973 they were still operating

Flight 351-BOS-BUF-DTW-ORD
Flight 479-BOS-BUF-DTW-DAL-PHX

Both flights operated with 707's

I believe in the 90's BOS-SAN was with a 767. Also BOS-SFO was a 762 until AA downsized it to a 757. I miss the 3-Class 762 flights from BOS.

DL used to also run a 767 CVG-BOS and BOS-CVG, I think it was up until 1999 regularly, then some occasional appearances 1999-2001 or so.

33 N1120A : AA has flown, and still does fly, SAN-BOS for years.
34 A330323X : USAir ran the B767-200ER on BOS-CLT, as a continuation of their BOS-FRA flight. Not sure if they've run it on BOS-PIT or not.
35 Cs03 : The BOS/YUL route was one of many New England routes that Delta obtained when they bought Northeast. (Yellowbirds)!

42 N1120A : LOL, I know, I just remember seeing a same flight number 762 for a long time on LAX-PIT-FRA and was trying to see if this was the case.
