Hi guys,

After starting the SJC thread, I thought it would be fun to do the same for SEA. Interesting that the list seems far shorter.

Here's what I can think of.

SVO - (SU)
HKG - (I don't recall this but others have mentioned it)
CPH - (SK)
BGO - (Done a few days a week with SK DC-8s instead of CPH)
CUN - (AS)
MEX - (AM)
YXS - (QX's short lived Prince George flight)
YKA - (QX did Kamloops in the winter season for a few years recently)
ADQ - (Kodiak, one of WA's last, if not the last, Electra route until about 1972)
OMA - (Eastern did this as part of ATL and STL flights from SEA)
RDD - (QX)
ACV - (QX)
CLM - (QX - Port Angeles)
MWH - (QX - Moses Lake)
TiW - (Hughes Airwest old milk-run - Tacoma Airport)
ITO - (NW)


Anything else?

HKG - (I don't recall this but others have mentioned it)

Correct - UA flew SEA-HKG with either a DC-10-30 or 747SP in the early-mid '80s. I remember seeing it parked at Gate N1 or N2 in June 1983.

HEL - Finnair flew this route with a DC-10-30

Bangkok (via NRT) - TG
Helsinki - Finnair
MMH (via RNO) - QX
Friday Harbor - Harbor Air/San Juan Airlines
Eastsound - San Juan Airlines
Oak Harbor - San Juan Airlines

That's all I can think of.

I was speaking of non-stop so TG and MMH don't count. I do remember the one-season RNO-MMH tag-on. I guess you know have to go through LAX or SJC.

HEL does count though. Good one.

Ahhh, San Juan Airlines doesn't exist anymore? I remember they had the AS name and logo at the Friday Harbor airport. I'd like to have seen them try to get into Roche Harbor!

I don't think so. Not that I'm aware of. That short lived airline, Sky-whatever, flew out of BLI to CMH.

Hopefully SEA-MEX will return some time soon. Now that AM and DL are relaunching their partnership, they could pool their resources and operate MEX-SEA-MEX using an AM 73W and schedules that appeal to business and leisure travelers. If this does not materialize, perhaps we might see KE doing ICN-SEA-MEX in the future... I believe they have already expressed interest.


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

I know there was an airline based out of TIW that for a while (i want to say around 98-00) operated in SEATAC B concourse. THey flew to A lot of the smaller destinations with caravans and a couple other types but I can't remember the name of the airline.

East sound, CLM, and FHR are now all served by Kenmore Air Express out of BFI with Caravans and Chieftains. I know in summer of 2007 there was service to Tofino from BFI and Also Helijet used to serve Vancouver and Victoria Heliports with S76's as well as flew to Campbell River in the 1900's.

I know NW did Non Stop IND flights for a few years s well as MEM flights they are no longer happening.

Oh, MEM is gone already? I just did that flight in March. I should have remembered US to PIT, which I've also done.

So we'll add:


IND
MEM
PIT

I think that's been more of a seasonal route for WN and/or FL, but maybe I'm mistaken.

Reeve Aleutian used to fly SEA-CDB (Cold Bay) nonstop on their 727's I think, though it may have been the Electra's.

Yeah, I thought about that later too. I remember the Simpson's plane and others.

I think QX also did IDA and BTM too.

So we'll add:


COS
IDA
BTM
CDB


SEA is catching up to SJC in the discontinued destinations number.

Did BF ever do DAL?

It's hard to keep track nowadays because some flights go "seasonal" for years.

Horizon did a seasonal OTH (North Bend/Coos Bay) flight for a while. Pro Air did a SEA-DET (Detroit City Airport) route for a very short time as well in 2000. I think Mexicana used to fly to GDL (Guadalajara) as well at one time. I know they flew to SEA but I'm not 100% confident that it was GDL.

Quoting BigGSFO (Reply 19):

They ran a TU154 via Anchorage to Vladivostok...I believe around the same time as AS was operating in the Russian Far East from ANC.

Sadly, SEA-MEM on DL is history...and it won't be coming back. As I understand the issue, the flights are quite full (95% load factor) but the yields are garbage owing to the fact that the vast majority of traffic to/from SEA is connecting somewhere. The only time that SEA does well from MEM is in the summer with the cruise traffic..but I don't see DL putting an aircraft on it....they'll force the traffic out of the secondary markets over MSP/SLC/DTW or ATL.

You can add AF to the list in March as DL will be taking over the route, with a 763.

As for SEA-MEX. it's hard to tell how that will play out. KE flying SEA-MEX might be a cool idea, but as a practical matter, since there isn't that much O&D from SEA to MEX and since AS has most of the beach resorts covered from Seattle either nonstop or via LAX...not sure that we'll see AM in Seattle. We'll just have to wait and see.

IIRC, PSA flew SFO-YKM-PSC-SFO. I think the only routes that PSA flew out of SEA were SEA-SFO, SEA-LAX, SEA-RNO, and SEA-BLI.

I was thinking about National Airlines, but looking it up it seems they flew SEA-LAX and SEA-IAH (or HOU) at one time.

Looked it up. Empire flew SEA-CDA for about 3 months in 1985, then entered the market again in 1990. Not sure when the service ended, but I don't believe anyone has flown SEA-CDA since then.
