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.

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.
