Braniff's 707-327C fleet were ordered to be used on the PAC-MAC flights to Vietnam, however they had several aircraft delivered around '66-'67, which seems a fairly large number to just operate millitary charter flights. Did Braniff use the aircraft on internal US or South American routes along side 720s/707-227's at this time? I am aware that around 1969 they were used to operate the initial flights to HNL
Also, did the airline operate them in a 2 class with forward lounge or all Y configuration?

Almost everyone had charter birds to Nam....PA,NW, UA, AA,CO, TW, Flying Tigers....the list is endless.
NW had a small number of 320's in all coach configs for the military charters across the Pacific.
To answer the Q, the BN Boeing 320's were pretty much MIA to South America, but of course, there were exceptions.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.
