You can delete the ? from NW - FRA, was a DC10 service around late 80/early 90s. Been on it couple of times. CDG was served as well.


One BN routing was BOS-BRU-FRA in a 747

The African airline is TACV Transporte Aaero Cabo Verde.


SATA Azores is another one to be added, they have at last seasonal services, also to PVD.

NW's GLA service lasted until the early to mid-90s. I have to check my timetables, but I think CPH was flown from BOS too. FRA and CDG were definitely flown during the days of the BOS transatlantic hub. In fact I believe CDG was a continuation of an MSP-BOS flight on the DC10.

BN never served CPH but they did serve CDG from BOS.

Also, the infamous TW847 (hijacked in 1985) was routed ATH-FCO-BOS-LAX (727 from ATH-FCO, then 747 on FCO-BOS-LAX).

PA (LHR, Shannon?)

Looking at a 1974 Pan Am Timetable, PA had nonstops from BOS to LHR, CDG, FCO, FRA, and LIS. All were operated by 707s except for LHR, which was a 747.

There was also SNN-BOS around the same time to allow DUB-ORD to be non-stop pre-Open Skies

Also can add Air One to MXP to the list

Just as point of clarification, I assume you meant SN (Sabena) not SB (Air Calédonie International (France))

In the 1980s and 1990s I was frequently on SN 533/534 which was the BRU-BOS-BRU flight.

In the late '70s, Braniff had service to:

London
Frankfurt
Brussels
Paris
Amsterdam

They used 747s and DC-8s.

Pan Am 707s nonstop to Amsterdam

And of course, Northwest 747s and DC-10s nonstop to:

Prestwick
Glasgow
London
Amsterdam
Frankfurt
Paris
Stockholm (for a little while, circa '88/'89)
Shannon

And did anybody mention TWAs nonstops to Paris, Rome, and London?

Actually their HEL-BOS route has been non-stop from last? summer already.

Their summer routes to Boston and Toronto is a strange product, called 'Leisure flights' by AY.
They use cramped B752, with limited leg room and charter-like service onboard, but you can book the flights on their website, like it was an ordinary scheduled service. This comes as unpleasant surprise for some pax who haven't noticed the difference. And the prices arent especially low...

I can't recall Braniff ever operating BOS-London or having traffic rights on that route under the highly restrictive US-UK bilateral then in effect. I believe they only ever served London (Gatwick) from DFW, and that seems to be confirmed from their timetable route maps from 1979 and 1980. By 1981 all their Europe routes except DFW-LGW had been dropped when they were fighting for survival.

Also, I don't believe Braniff operated anything the DC-8 to Europe, unless they occasionally used the DC-8 as an ad hoc substitution for maintenance reasons for scheduled 747s.

BA flew BOS-GLA direct with 1 stop in JFK on a B757. Flew it in 1997.


Oh Stewardess, I speak Jive.
25 PanHAM : 747s only. I can't remember seeing BN DC9s in FRA, not even on MAC flights.
26 PWM2TXLHopper : There was also... Olympic A340-200's to ATH Northwest DC-10's ORY, and later CDG I think?
27 AussieItaliano : I thought NW had served FCO from BOS as well.
28 ElmoTheHobo : And at one point it was flown via NYO (prior to being switched to ARN).
29 BHMNONREV : You can add Santa Maria, Azores to the TWA list. Flown with a 707 up to the mid-70's or so..
30 Jonathan-l : ORY is part of the list, I have flown it.
31 Robbie86 : Maybe so, but the used to be via ARN
32 Tiger119 : - How long is this flight in terms of hours and miles? David
33 1stfl94 : I don't think BA ever flew LGW-BOS but Virgin did from 1991 to 2001 before switching from LGW to LHR
34 Aviateur : [quote=Viscount724,reply=23]I can't recall Braniff ever operating BOS-London or having traffic rights on that route under the highly restrictive US-UK
35 AirGabon : I can't remember well but I guess AF discontinued service to BOS during few years (end of 90s??) and also flew with very low frequencies (i.e 2 A310-3
36 Bobnwa : NW never flew to ORY. The service was scheduled to ORY but was switched to CDG before it started. NW never flew to FCO from Boston.
37 Post contains links and images FlySSC : You are right. AF services to BOS were discontinued in the early 90s for a short period, and resumed with A310-300. Later, AF used a B767 and B742 on

41 Viscount724 : SMA was a scheduled TWA stop on some flights to/from LIS for many years, probably at least 20, from approximately the mid-to-late 1950s through most
42 OA412 : Slight correction but OA flew the route with A340-300's as they do not have any -200's. They flew the route both nonstop and sometimes via JFK.
43 SNATH : BOS-GLA is 3030 miles, so I'd guess around 5.5-6 hours. It was indeed a (wingleted) B737-700. It was also known to do the return leg (BOS to GLA) via

48 Antonovman : World Airways flew sched services BOS - LGW in the early 80's with a DC10
49 747buff : Braniff eliminated all non-DFW/MIA international service towards the end of 1980 and was gone by the summer of 1982 (May 1982 shutdown). I just looke
50 Aviateur : The "Braniff Pages" website mentions a BOS-LON service, but no specifics. I can't concede just yet.... I remember those damn orange 747s at Logan so
51 Viscount724 : As already mentioned by someone else, I am fairly certain BN never obtained BOS-LGW rights. And the Braniff 747s you saw at BOS were going to AMS/BRU
52 28L28L : BN served LGW from their DFW base only, from 18Mar78 until May82. This was the "Big Orange" to London (except when flown with the leased AA silver 747
53 Timz : Transatlantic, you mean? There was still a flight or two south out of JFK in early 1982. No BOS-London in the 2/81-5/81-9/81-10/81-1/82 timetables.
54 Humberside : Since I'm a bit bored I've gone through the thread and updated the original list. Includes destinations served both non-stop and one-stop US Airlines
55 747buff : Yes, I forgot about the JFK-South America flights, but I was referring to transatlantics from BOS and the transpacific routes from LAX.
56 Viscount724 : Not LGW.
