So I know Pan Am did not operate DC9s (I think)... why are they listed on this timetable between Houston and San Antonio?

Could it be a legacy of the National Airlines take over? Not sure if they had DC9s or not have a feeling they had DC8s and I know they had DC10s, so clearly a McDD customer. Perhaps it was left over post-NA merger - just a thought

It was Emerald Airlines functioning in a Pan Am Express capacity.

Emerald code-shared with PA and CO for a bit. When they went bust, their certificate was used for the third incarnation of Braniff.

The original National Airlines never had DC-9s. They had DC-8s, DC-10s and 727s in the jet era. Of course the original PA never had DC-9s (or 737s) either. They did have 727-100s for their intra-Germany routes.

The original Pan Am most certainly did have 737's, -200's to be exact that they purchased or leased used, that were formerly with Air Florida and before that United, as well as former PSA, LH, PW ships and others. I flew PA to GIG in 1989 from ATL via MIA and returned to Atlanta on a -222 with an AF registration. There are numerous pictures of them on this website. Not only were they used stateside but on inter German services. Pan Am never purchased any new from Boeing, but they didn't purchase any 720B's from Boeing either, but they sure as heck operated them. If you are referring to the original Pan Am as pre National merger, then you are correct; all the 737's came in the 80's.

Yes, I knew that. I meant the original REAL Pan Am before the NA merger and domestic operation. I knew about the 720s.

National surely did have 2 747-100's also. They later went on to NWA.

   Sure is a DC-9, or what is left of it.

That photo could just as easily be a DC-8 if I am not mistaken.

No, it's missing the nose chin scoops for the turbo-compressors. Even when converted to a Series 70s, they were still present but faired over.

No. Northeast merged with Delta around 1972. I'm not aware of anyone ever merging with National before PanAm.

You are right....ok I tried.

I am not aware of any DC-9's then serving in PanAm colors....unless they did one up for a movie or something, or one of the original -10's was done up in Pan Am colors--although since they didn't take any, I'd think it would have been repainted....

I respectfully defer to the rest of you in solving this mystery..oh and Happy Holidays all....

Not possible due to the door placement and much smaller, closely-spaced windows. DC-8 windows were roughly twice as large and more widely-spaced (on 40-inch centers I believe vs. 20 inches for the DC-9).

I'll bet they were CO flights right after they took over Texas International. In order words, an old day version of a code share.

Those flights don't show in the Itinerary section at the end of the PA timetable, even though all other comparable domestic flights do (with 727s). The Departed Flights web site didn't have a CO/TI timetable from exactly the same date as the PA timetable that the OP linked to. However, they did have one dated three months earlier and did have several IAH-SAT flights.
