Another auction, so more trivia, from the December 1984 North American OAG:

It seems Northeastern ended their DC-8 flights this month; a couple flights ISP-FLL and ISP-MCO-PBI were to change D8S to 72S eff 15 December. They also have 727/72S MDW-PIE-MCO-PHL-BDL and back, BDL-PBI-FLL-MSY-LAS-SAN and back, and all the JFK flights are A300: JFK-MIA, JFK-FLL, and JFK-MCO-MSY-LAX.

Regent Air (727-100s "serving 35 in luxury", fare $785) still isn't in the schedule listing, but their full-column ads show two flights each way LA-NY daily except Sat. Airports not specified-- when they did appear in the schedule listing it was LAX-EWR.

Far West is still flying its YS11s around California, but Davies/Quastler say they expired on 13 Dec. Coincidence: another YS11 airline was to start on 12 Dec, Fort Worth Airlines with two nonstops each weekday AUS-FTW, ten HOU-FTW and two SAT-FTW.

Can you name the airline that scheduled a 747 to Des Moines? For just one day, but it's in this OAG: Transamerica flight 2, HNL-DFW-DSM-STL on one of its weekly trips. Usually they flew HNL-DFW-STL.

Commuters in Sidney NY (SXY) had it good: Susquehanna Airlines would fly them to Binghampton at 0625 (Piper), 0630 (B99), 0630 (Heron), 0635 (Gulfstream), or 0700 (Heron). Somehow their Herons must have looked out of place at JFK and LGA. By the way, 1967/68 Jane's says the Riley Heron had a "service ceiling, two engines out 15,000 ft". At MTOW, it says (13500 lb).

Any chance on telling me what TWA, Frontier and Western were using into SLC around this time?

I guess you mean Republic? No nonstops DTW-LAS in the 12/84 OAG, RC or any other; the 5/85 OAG says RC was to start a 72S nonstop on 1 June. By the end of 1985 it was an MD80.

It was about this time that AA was first beginning service to BFL. Two flights a day, outbound in the morning SBA-BFL-DFW, mid-morning DFW-BUR-BFL-DFW, and an evening DFW-BFL-SBA. The morning "triangle" was eventually rerouted as DFW-BFL-SBA-DFW.

I wonder if any of the MD-80's that started that route are still flying...

I guess your the same Timz I've been buying my guides off of Ebay from. I lost the last one, but let me know if you put any more up.


Yay Pudding!
