Does anyone know how the PA-BN service between LHR-DAL worked back in the late 60 and early 70s. I know the routing was LHR-ORD-DAL. I think PA operated the service, but I don’t know what BNs role was in the deal. I would also like to know if it was the same aircraft through to DAL and what type. I think a 707-320B, but not sure. Anyone know where I could find a 1969 PA timetable? Are there any Pan Am or Braniff old timers out there that can help?

7/69 OAG shows PA/BN flights 58 and 59 daily Houston-DAL-ORD-LHR-FRA-- just says 707, no indication of whose. Far as we can see it was a thru aircraft with BN crews south of ORD. Maybe Cearley's DAL book has a pic.
BN and PA both operated 707-320B/Cs, so no problem here. But I wonder if AA really had DC-8 pilots when they operated NA (or was it DL?) DC-8s to the West Coast from Florida or wherever it was.

According to the Cearly book it shows photos of PA 707 N759PA making the 1st flight on 7/1/62. The printed schedules also show as PA 707's daily HOU-DAL-ORD-LHR-FRA. I couldn't find the dates the flights ended.
