I do remember reading an article in a magazine about an airline (now defunct) that flew a real exotic aircraft (I can't remember which one it was) between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. The whole point of the article was, that it was the last scheduled route of this type of plane, and he wanted to fly it, etc.

Hi- i know a while ago TWA flew FLL to MIA. It was flown by a DC-9. im not sure if they still do though. They might have discontinued it.
I know that US Airways Express flies a BWI to DCA flight. Thats a pretty close flight as well.
If any of this is wrong-let me know!

Yes....it has been done by many carriers. Eastern, Air Florida, Delta, TWA, Piedmont, American Eagle have at one time or another flow MIA-FLL. As for JFK-EWR I am not sure. Houston Hobby to Houston Intercontinental was once served by Continental using DC9's. They had Houston Proud Express written on them.

Back in June I was at LGA. I looked at the Arrivals board and it had a United flight from JFK to LGA. Listed a flight # and times, too. But, after a little investigation, I found out that it didn't exist. I took a picture anyway, just for kicks.

As of today (9/30/99), Delta nor TWA flew the FLL-MIA route.
American Eagle/United Express does fly the SNA-LAX route, on EMB-120 aircraft.
USAirways Express (Piedmont Airlines) flies the Dash 8 on the BWI-DCA route, and USAirways flies 733s, 734s, and 757s on the BWI-PHL route.
There are no Crosstown New York flights, but it is amzing (to me) that airlines actually fly these routes, when you can drive!!!
