Remember when cities like Worcester and New Haven had daily 737's?

Remember when the majors "connected the dots" between smaller cities (EA flights from BOS-PVD-BDL-EWR) on 727's and DC-9's?

I suppose those days are long gone!

UA used to fly into ILG(Wilmington, DE) with 737s to ORD. That's been discontinued, and now Deleware is the only state in the US without scheduled commercial air service.

LNK Lincoln Nebraska used to get UAL A320 757 727 737 B146 service from DEN and ORD....Overnight it was dropped to D328!!!

BFF Scottsbluff Nebraska also used to see Frontier 737's (back before I was even alive) to DEN (about 200 miles).

In my neck of the woods, It would be Yuma and Grand Canyon, both served with Hughes AirWest DC-9s.

I also remember RW DC-9s serving Klamath Falls, OR.

TOL will only have CRJ 700s as the biggest airplane that will fly regularly scheduled airplanes when AirTran pulls out in 2 weeks. The funny thing is...we haven't seen any jump in the amount of flights to TOL to replace these mainliners....airport just sux I guess.

As JonPaulGeoRngo said...ELM and ITH had US Airways F-100 serve to PIT. BGM is the same way. Now ELM and BGM have ERJs serving the route (with some Dash-8s in there also) and ITH just gets Dash-8s and D328s.

Eastern flew to Key West with DC-9s and 727-100s, aswell as US Air who flew F-28s to Key West.

What about Trenton, US Air used to fly DC-9s to PIT and EastWind flew to Florida and Greensboro.

I remember when HVN had United 737's about 3 times a day into Tweeds small runway... It was great to have 2 mainline cities in a small state like Connecticut. I could see US or UA bring RJ's into HVN once the runway is extended, but I doubt minline will ever come back. Airports like BDL and HPN are just too close.... I think ORH could get some mainline Delta or AA however, that isnt out of the question.

Melbourne, FL still has 4 mainline Delta Md-88's a day to ATL, the Comair flight to CVG is only operated on Sat. There are also 4 ASA flights a day to ATL. Mainline is not going anywhere in MLB. Since it survived 9/11 cuts, it will most likely stay. Loads are usually very heavy. Continental pulled its flights from both MLB and DAB, but they are coming back soon, if they are not already back (there was a press release a few months back announcing the return). A few years ago there were rumors of mainline leaving either DAB or MLB, but they were then reduced and ASA was added to suppliment the existing service. It is too bad that their is not more service from these airports because they are small, no long lines, and very convenient.

Delta flew to Beaumont/Port Arthur;Presque Isle/Caribou/Brunswick/Paducha/Meridian/and Alexandria up to 1979.

Eastern had jets at Key West in 1984, Piedmont had 727s flying from Kinston to Washington National in 79, Braniff flew jets out of Fort Smith, Ar until 79, and Jamestown, North Dakota had Northwest 727s until 79.
1979 was not a good year for small communities.

Columbia, SC has been reduced to Delta MD80s to ATL. In 1977 Delta flew 2 L-1011 flights from ATL to CAE. US Airways pulled its jets, American stopped Jets and Eagle in 94' Air South collapsed in 97' United ended jets in the 90's so the remaining service is regional jets.

I am surprised at the fact that ORH has jets yet HVN doe not. ORH is actually a bit closer to BDL then HVN and also has BOS within a close driving distance. Oh well, I bet we will see RJs into HVN once the runway is extended, IF the runway is extended.

You are correct, I thought ITH had 328s fly in there. They are now just served with ERJ, Dash-8 and B1900
