With the recent surge in International flying by US Airlines I'd like to start a thread on cities that Pan Am and TWA flew to in their heydey that haven't been served by US Airlines since.

I can think of a few:

Karachi (Pan Am)
Krakow (Pan Am)
Riyadh (Pan Am and TWA)
Bahrain (Pan Am and TWA)
Dhahran (Pan Am- now known as Dammam)
Kuwait (TWA)
Nuremberg (Pan Am)
Recife (Pan Am)
Zagreb (Pan Am)
Dubrovnik (Pan Am)
Ankara (Pan Am)
Santa Maria (TWA)
Casablanca (Pan Am and TWA)
Entebbe (Pan Am)
Monrovia (Pan Am)
Nairobi (Pan Am)
Accra (Pan Am)
Abidjan (Pan Am)

I am sure there are many more!

I'm not sure about this one but I'm pretty sure Beirut (BEY) didn't see American carriers since. The Lebanese will surely give their input if they know of such endeavours.

an interesting list - I assume that KRK ZAG and Dubrovnik were served on narrowbodies from FRA ?

just curious when did PA serve EBB ?

Yes, Pan Am had a fleet of 727s at FRA. When Delta bought out PA's Atlantic routes, the FRA hub didn't last very long.

I am pretty sure that CO flew to NAN enroute to SYD for a little while when they first ventured into the South Pacific , although they no longer do so .

Are you sure PA flew to New Caledonia ?

It was there through at least '96...

They didn't dehub Frankfurt until late 1996 and at that point they dumped the remaining A 310s also. A lot of points were linked directly with JFK while others were dropped entirely.

When did TWA serve PNE? That's neat that they did, just wondering when.

I believe NW served Okinawa for a bit in the 1980s, but I could be wrong. Maybe it was one of those points NW put on their route map at the time (like Kuala Lumpur and a few others) but did not serve!

actually...both Northwest AND Continental flew to Naha, Okinawa (a.k.a OKA)

i flew on those flights. back in '92 i flew HNL-GUM-OKA (on CO; HNL-GUM DC-10, GUM-OKA B727)

in summer of '93 flew on NW OKA-GUM-HNL (B727 OKA-GUM; DC-10 GUM-HNL) same a/c for return routing.

IIRC, NW discontinued HNL-GUM/GUM-OKA between the end of '93 or '94 cause i remember my mom making travel arrangements for us (summer of '94) to fly via ITM in '94. we flew JAL from OKA-ITM and NW from ITM-HNL and we flew CO back to OKA via GUM.

CO flew to all those destinations.

There's also plenty of International Destinations CO currently serves that PA or TWA never flew.

PA and TW were true American flag carriers... they connected the US to every major world city and many other smaller ones, something that no current carrier in the US does (although CO, DL, and AA are trying)...

I hope some of those cities do get service back from American carriers... Let's have America reach out in the world in a non-negative manner...

While I grew up with the likes of Braniff and Pan Am in the 60s and 70s, I am still fascinated by TW's global reach during it's heyday almost on a par with their cross JFK rival PA. When I first took any real notice of TW as a teen in the 70s, TW by then had ceasd much of their Asian (save for Isreal) operations and with the exception of Cairo all of Africa. By that time TW was slowly beginning their decline into the history books.

Sorry I was so bad skipping COMIKE all the time for the South Pacific,


I thought NW served KUL once from KIX, but after the ASian economy crisis, they pulled out and did a codeshare with MH from KIX

NW also served CGK at one time too.

Midway Island (MDY), USA - Pan Am
Wake Island (AWK), USA - Pan Am
Douala (DLA), Cameroon - Pan Am Definitely
Brazzaville (BZV), Congo - Pan Am I think
Kinshasa (FIH) (then known as Leopoldville), Congo - Pan Am I think

This is all from memory, but PA in Africa definitely served Douala, and I'm pretty sure at one time they served Brazzaville and Leopoldville. I'm sure they served the Azores and probably Gander or St. John's New Foundland during the days of shorter ranged aircraft.

There were other Pan Am German destinations too: Westerland (Sylt), Kiel, and Hanover come to mind.

What about Papeete?

I'm not sure about Riyadh. Didn't Delta fly there just before September 11th?

Brasilia and Recife in Brazil had Pan Am service. And if this thread only regards scheduled service, then Havana, Cuba too.

I can't imagine why Northwest pulled Okinawa service since we have some very large bases there. Kadena AB and the Marine Bases have very large populations of US Dependents, DoD Civilians and Active Duty Personnel. In order to leave Okinawa you have the Patrioit Express Flight to Seattle which will end in 2006 or fly JAL to Tokyo Haneda and transfer to Narita to fly to the US or fly to another Japanese Airport to change planes.

25 Mats : Did Delta at least PLAN to serve Riyadh? Or have I completely made this up? I remember when they added service from JFK to Cairo, Tel Aviv, Dubai, and
26 Timz : You remember Delta flying JFK-NRT?
27 Kkfla737 : I think it was JFK-Gotenburg. Maybe Bergen as well also. NW was very agressive with Scandanavia service in the early 80s.
28 Oldman55 : I bet the aircraft just sits there !!
29 TOLtommy : It's all about the yield. Too many travelling on gov't fares. The resources were moved to other routes, where yields were better.
30 Bobnwa : Northwest served a lot of Scandanavia but never Bergen or Gotenburg.
31 Stirling : Most of what has been posted so far has been from the jet-age, but if you go back just a little deeper, the peak of PanAms reach was in the late 40's,
