I'm trying to find out details - flight numbers, what sort of plane, perhaps even the regs - of a couple of flights I took back in 1990. I figure if anybody's likely to have answers to some of these questions it's a.netters!
The flights were with Dan Air, from LGW to Switzerland. GVA would have been the nearest airport to the ski resort I was heading to, but the Wikipedia article on Dan Air suggests that they only served ZRH - so the first question: can anybody confirm this?
I haven't been able to find a timetable for these services. So the second question - does anybody know where I can get hold of one? I'm looking for the flight numbers of the Saturday services LGW/ZRH.
The excellent archives at www.lgw-lhr.co.uk unfortunately don't have data for Jan 90.
Searching for Dan Air at ZRH pictures, there are none from 1990 but some a year or two either side. Pre-1990 there are pics of 727s and One-elevens, post-1990 there are 737s. I'm almost certain the plane we were on had engines at the rear, so it could have been a 727 or 111. The other thing I'm almost sure I remember is that it had 2+2 seating... might that identify which type it was?
Any clues would be really appreciated... the flights I'm trying to find out about will be the oldest entries in my flight log. I keep careful note of these things now, back then I had no idea I'd ever be interested enough to care!
