Remember the days when:

Northwest had DC10's to places like Great Falls!

TWA served DAY and ABQ with L10's!

UA had DC10's to BDL and 767's to BUR!

I know BDL got DL 767s for some time, as well as AA a300s to SJU, before the service was switched to a 757, then a 737, then dropped.

PVD had DL 757s (and maybe 767s) on a scheduled basis.

EA ran a 757 PVD-ISP-ATL (I'msad this doesn't still exist as I travel to Warwick and Providence from Long Island 3-4x a year. I think at one point ISP may have had DC-8s (the airline, though, I cannot recall).

I really wish I had been around during the age of the milk-runs. Made spotting so much more interesting and flying so much more fun!!!

Northeastern International Airlines. They lived from 1982-1984.

DL had a 767 to ONT not too long ago. Further back, UA did a 762 to LGB.

AA flew 777, MD-11, DC-10s and 762s into SJC, and 763s for a very short time (CDG). The 762 did JFK. SJC still gets HA wide bodies and soon NH.

Didn't someone say that BUF got AA DC-10s? I think AUS did too.

ONT isn't a small airport, or a small market. The area's just in a bit of a slump.

Yes it did. I don't know the exact dates of BUF's AA DC-10 service but in June 1972, AA 96 (a DC-10) was heading from LAX to LGA via DTW and BUF. It had an explosive decompression shortly after departing DTW.

The *modern day* smallest US airports with scheduled passenger widebody flights are probably Fairbanks (Condor to Frankfurt in summer) and Orlando Sanford (TUI to Amsterdam).

I can't find anything to support it, but it *seems* like ALB, ELP, TUS and PVD have had scheduled widebody flights, but I might be off on that. I also didn't find anything into some places that might have, including SDF, OKC, RIC, RNO, GSO, LIT, DSM, ORF or SRQ, all of which are relative peers of some widebody cities like Omaha, Columbia, Syracuse and Daytona Beach. And I thought Northwest's Montana DC-10 service included Missoula, but I couldn't find evidence of that...just Spokane-Great Falls-Billings-MSP/ORD.

still gets HA wide bodies

I'm betting there are a few airports where HA is the only widebody service, SMF comes to mind, for PDX, HA is the only domestic widebody service. In fact if you take away International departures, there are very few widebody cities left here in the US vs. what it used to be like in the 70's, 80's & 90's.

Delta flew L10s to TYS and MEM.
AA had D10s to AUS and SAT.
UA had D10s to OMA
I'm sure National might have had DC10s to smaller cities

Living In IND in the early to mid 80's we had:

AA DC 10 on an ORD early am arrival, usually the last leg of a SFO or a LAX red-eye to ORD. It then was teh second morning departure to ORD..usually continuing on to SFO.

Then that became a 762 for a while and time of day varied.

TWA had both l-10 and 767 from STL at various times and also for a long time had a LAX-IND- DAY L10 flight. Occasionally it started in CMH-then IND to LAX..always Am westbound and evening return, usually around 9:30 PM.
On clear evenings I could see it approach from my balcony patio.

ahh. those were some good days.

Actually, I think PBI was the smallest station with DC-10 service. The milk runs were always 727s in the jet age.

I nominate DAB as the smallest city/market to ever have scheduled wide-body service - Eastern L-1011s back in the day.

OAG's Pocket Flight Guide, North American Edition, for March 1-31, 1985 shows AA Flt. #375 operatiing DFW-ELP with a DC-10. AA #436 operated ELP-DFW. Looks like a RON at ELP.

Going back a decade earlier, American Airlines' timetable eff. August 1, 1975 shows the following medium-sized city DC-10 flights:

BUF-ORD 1x daily
BUF-DTW-LAX 2x daily
BUF-LGA 1x daily

BDL-JFK 1x daily

PHX-ORD 2x daily
PHX-SFO 1x daily

There was also a daily JFK-PHX-LAX roundtrip with a 747!

(The Phoenix MSA had "only" 1.5 million residents in 1980 so I'd consider it medium-size in 1975)

SYR-ORD-LAX 2x daily
SYR-JFK 1x daily

United Air Lines' June 13, 1975 timetable shows some interesting DC-10/747 routes:

CLE-ATL-TPA 1x daily DC-10
CLE-ORD-HNL 2x daily 747
CLE-ORD 1x daily DC-10
BDL-ORD 1x daily DC-10
LAS-ORD-JFK 1x daily 747
LAS-ORD 1x daily DC-10
LAS-DEN-DTW 1x daily DC-10
LAS-LAX 1x daily DC-10
LAS-SFO 1x daily DC-10
MKE-DEN Tuesday-only DC-10 (!!!)
PIT-ORD-LAX 1x daily 747, 1x daily DC-10
PIT-DTW-SFO Monday & Tuesday-only DC-10
PDX-ORD 1x daily DC-10
PDX-SEA 1x daily DC-10

Northwest Airlines' timetable Eff. June 1, 1976 is interesting as well:

Flt. #71 operated EWR-ORD-BIL-GTF-GEG-SEA daily with a DC-10
Flt. #72 operated SEA-GEG-GTF-BIL-ORD-DTW-EWR daily with a DC-10

Flt. #220 operated MSP-MKE-JFK daily with a 747
Flt. #221 operated JFK-MKE-MSP daily with a 747

Flt. #12 operated ANC-SEA-GEG-MSP-ORD ex. Sat with a DC-10
Flt. #50 operated SEA-GEG-MSP-PHL-EWR daily with a DC-10
Flt. #125 operated ORD-MSP-GEG-SEA daily with a DC-10

88 DeltaRules : I flew at Delta Connection Academy when they had a satellite campus at DAY. Thanks to flight benefits, it wasn't uncommon for a couple instructors wh
89 steeler83 : Thanks for the info on that. I never even heard of Capital. I always thought US (Allegheny) ran the show at PIT with TWA in its shadows. I know that
90 Viscount724 : UA's CLE hub was also inherted from the merger with Capital. Before deregulation, if you wanted to fly from ORD to Florida or ATL on UA you had to co

95 gsoflyer : Shoot, and the DC-9 and stuff is recently too, there were years that it was all RJ. I think it was the late 90s. I remember being on a number of 757
96 WA707atMSP : You are correct, Mayor. The DL extension to the ONT terminal opened in 1985/86, before the WA merger. The DL gate area was at ground level, and passe
97 AVLAirlineFreq : It would almost be just as interesting to identify the largest US airports that have never had widebody service. In light of this thread, it might be

99 mayor : When I worked at ORD for DL in the 70s, the only type of a/c that GSO (and RDU, for that matter) had were DC-9s....-14s at first and then -32s. As I
