JAC-LAX has been going for at least a month now.

It can be done, but in the winter, you might see some fuel stops.

This route has been operating for a period of time now. At one point it was mainline from JAC LAX and UAX from LAX to JAC.

When AA flew JAC-DFW with 727-100s, they didn't even attempt to fly it nonstop in the winter -they flew it via Idaho Falls. You could theoretically book a ticket on AA JAC-IDA, or IDA-DFW. I wonder if anyone ever did this....

Back in the '90s, a few of the DL flights had IDA-JAC or JAC-IDA with SLC the orig & dest on the flight numbers. I flew it once on a 733 from JAC-IDA-SLC. It's not a long flight or drive, but I'm sure there were a handful of travelers each week that flew those legs. Although in the winter, it was probably a lot better of an option than making the drive over the pass.

I believe LAXintl ment JAC not JAX.

And no way JAX-LAX can be done non-stop any time of year without a fuel stop.

Hey, someone caught the joke!

Actually, it can. It would just have a (very) large payload penalty.

Yes typo, meant JAC not JAX.

As far as the service running, it has been already been discontinued a few weeks back.(mid Aug.)

This announced service however will be the first time they see winter service between the cities on United. Hopefully it does well.

I know that OO had trouble with their SLC-JAC flights during ski season.......many times skis would get left behind and have to be sent to JAC on another means of transportation.

When AA switched the SLC-JAC service to MD80s, they sometimes had to block seats to reduce the takeoff weight. Don't know if they were tankering fuel into JAC as we (DL) were doing or not, but sometimes that would reduce what we could carry, even on 737-300s. I'm guessing that fuel costs were higher in JAC than SLC, hence the tankering.
