Quoting LTBEWR (Reply 1): If I am correct, the departure point in the USA would be LGA,
I think you are right, because it was only after WWII that Idlewild was opened by the Port Authority of New York for long haul flights. It opened in 1948, it was renamed John F Kennedy (JFK) after the murder in Dallas in 1963.

A few years ago I heard a radio transcription of an MGM broadcast that previewed the music from the soon-to-be-released film The Wizard of Oz. It featured many of the original cast and was hosted by Robert Young. Anyway, they paused for a Maxwell House coffee commercial which saluted the 22 passengers on board the Dixie Clipper, on which Maxwell House was served. You can listen to a snippet of it here (Track 15): http://www.amazon.com/gp/recsradio/r...01_015?ie=UTF8&track=015&disc=001.
I work for Southwest, but the views expressed are my own and do not necessarily represent those of Southwest.
