Pan Am's European 727 fleet were (primarily) used on the LHR - FRA and LHR - TXL route. There were probably other routes as well, but these two immediately spring to mind.

LHR-HAM and LHR-MUC as well. United inherited these routes and flew them for a few years. Did PA use the 727s on IGS services to/from TXL?

....and on the IGS of course - various times and I am not sure if it is complete but
TXL to FRA / HAM / STR / NUE / MUC

and before

THF -HAM/HAJ/FRA/STR/NUE/MUC

I am not sure about DUS, they did operate DUS as well, but I would have to look that up if it was both from THF and TXL.


They had both the -100 and -200 in Berlin

to take that flight quite often back in the 80's........

PA did have TXL-DUS (something like 3 flights a day) for a short while in the eighties. Also, getting further off-topic, towards the end, they even had ATR42s from TXL to Kiel, Dortmund, Westerland/Sylt, BSL and CPH.

Yes, PA had a single daily 727 flight between ZRH and TXL (PA624/625) before they started JFK-ZRH. Once JFK-ZRH came online, they had a mini-hub in ZRH with 727s running ZRH-TXL, ZRH-STR-TXL as well as ZRH-GVA-IST. For a short while, they even had ZRH-ZAG I believe.

In Mid 80,s I was a FBU based engineer for Pan Am and there was a daily Flt 098 from FBU to LHR which as I recall was a through flight to MIA with aircraft change to 747 in LHR then the return sector was back to FBU on 727 again as a through flt from MIA. In between there was a afternoon flight back to Berlin via CPH, 2 days a week the a/c nightstopped instead at HEL so FBU was just a transit.

The a/c were a motley collection of different series of 727 necessating keeping 4 sets of IPC and MM tapes, the aircraft mostly rather geriatric.

One inbound a/c went tech big time in FBU requiring an engine change and the end result was a 2 engine ferry to FRA, after a lengthy troublshooting and preparation process, de activating process for the U/S engine and additional checks on remaining engines. FAA ferry permit issued, special authorised ferry crew and min fuel, daylight flight to FRA. 31 hrs duty time I did on that occasion as no other staff available.. Always thought that was a bit scary even under those conditions Dont know what happens to a 727 even very lightly loaded if you lose another engine ??

UA continued to operate the B727s from LHR for a while after buying PanAm's LHR operation. UA operated them to GVA among other places.
