Hello all,

I hope it is okay to post this message.

I have spent some time working on a web page some of you may be interested in. I am listing flight schedules from the July 1, 1983 Official Airline Guide.

It is completely non-profit and the only reason I am posting the link is because I thought some of you may be interested.

The link is:

www.geocities.com/departing1983/index.html

Thanks.

Greg

It's a great web page and I really enjoyed it.  bigthumbsup 

Also, I do have some questions about it:
Do you plan to show only flights operated by US airlines, or you will include foreign airlines as well?
Do you plan to add other years?

Very nice, I like the CLE-STL on TWA with a 767-200. I flew this route myself once, the plane was brand new.

Hey CLE757,

Always nice to hear from someone from my hometown. What is there from CLE to STL these days? 737s and RJs? Far cry from that 767!

Thanks for the compliment, LHMARK. Also, thanks for helping me realize I didn't have a link to BUF on the page! Its there now!

Working on CMH, then (per request) MSY, and then ROC just for you.

N702ML,

Great website!!! It's obvious you've put quite a lot of work into it.

In July of 1983, I was a student at Embry-Riddle in Daytona Beach, FL. One of my regular things to do was to jog from my dorm over to the airport terminal. When you get some time, could you post up the schedule for DAB? I'm sure those in school down there now would be greatly interested in comparing what we had 22 years ago with the little bit they get these days.

Thanks much.

Tom at MSY

Will do, Tom. As I said, CMH is almost done, to be followed by MSY and then ROC and then I will get to work on DAB just for you.

By the way, I think you are a fellow WN-er. I will be sure to look for you the next time I work a flight through there, although I have yet to work a MSY flight since before Katrina. Maybe with the increased service, I will be through there soon.

Regardless, sitting reserve over this weekend, I am sure I will have plenty of time to get all of these requests done.

Great job Greg. We e-mailed a few times and the last I heard you were working on a Midway website. I like this idea though...what a great reference for everyone to access to. Did you have to get any type of permission from OAG to do this? I have a feeling you're going to get a lot of requests.

Steve, I don't think we even have any MSY overnights yet. At least none that I have heard of. Maybe as we re-build our service there, they will be returning soon. (You know how much I miss that great hotel we stayed at there - HA!) I will let you know when I get there, though. Glad YOU are okay.

Thanks for the post. That was interesting reading for me. My home airport is ALB and it is interesting to see the changes in the past 20 years.

There are more flights to more distant locations now. What we lost were the short hop jet flights. In '83 ALB-BUF was 5 daily DC-9s. Now the route is flown by Beech 1900s. Also it's interesting to see all the flights to JFK (including 2 by 727) which is currently not served from ALB.

Cool stuff. Thanks

Dan

Atlanta was a remnant of the old Southern. The peak was in the neighborhood of 120 daily flights around 1979 or so; I have the exact info, I just need to find it.

Southern never operated at the new terminal, Republic operated from Concourse D. In the old terminal building, Southern operated from Terminal C. (Since demolished)

Since the birth of Southern, Atlanta was the primary city on the network. It served as a tertiary airline when compared to the trunk carriers of DL and EA.
Southern flew from Atlanta to such places as Tuscaloosa, Moultrie, Muscle Shoals, Greenville/Spartanburg, Eglin AFB etc; small cities within a 200 mile radius.

Then as the airline grew, more far flung destinations began to appear, and the competition at ATL became very heated. Remember too, In the 70's United had a focus city of sorts in Atlanta, so did Piedmont, on routes that competed with Southern...
Airlines that served Atlanta, usually did so with several destinations over multiple daily flights. And this was before the current airport design; back then the photos of Atlanta are incredible with aircraft squeezed into every available square inch of property.

To avoid all this competitive congestion, Republic shifted their SE operational center to MEM...where it remains today; as Northwest.

I'm actually in airport management here, primarily doing contract maintenance coordination, which these days takes up almost all my time. I do know quite a number of WN's people here, as my office is within spitting distance of WN's ticket counter. Let me know next time you come down here, and I can at least meet you at the plane.

The hotel in question took in a great deal of roof damage from what I can tell. It might be a while before it opens up. I imagine that there are other airport hotels making overtures to WN for crew overnight rooms.
