I see on this link to the Southern Airways 3/24/78 route map that there are "pending before the C.A.B" routes for MSY-MID/CZM/CUN, as well as MCO. I know MCO operated at some point....not sure about the others. The route map dated 7/1/78 doesn't show any mention of the routes. Perhaps they were denied by C.A.B? There's also a small insert map showing what looks to be a proposed SJU hub...suppose that didn't get off the ground, either.

MSY - MID / CUN / CZM were awarded to Eastern, not Southern. You can see the routes on EA's May 1, 1981 route map:

MSY - MCO was not operated by SO pre - merger; it is not on Republic's July 1, 1979 route map.

The route was operated eventually by Republic; it is on their Oct 25, 1981 route map. It was dropped in 1984, when Steve Wolf "re focused" RC's route system around DTW, MEM, and MSP.

I remember sitting next to the departure gate for EA MSY-CUN and literally seeing 4 people get on the flight.


When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

I see on the route map that SO served ATL-SAT & AUS. When did they start that one?

That route is also "pending CAB approval". Southern was not awarded these routes, either.

Routes in solid red lines on the map were routes pending CAB approval. Dashed red lines were routes SO had been awarded, but had not started yet.

Southern would apply for any route Eastern did.There was bad blood between those two in the south,especially in the 60s.Some of it started with the southeastern local service case in 1958-59 and more during the Southern pilot strike which started in 1960.
