Who Can Fly To Each State The Fastest?

Ok, here's the game for those who have time:

This is based on a UA promo for 1984, when they flew their jets into each of the 50 states and had a promotion: those who flew UA to all 50 got a prize (I think it was free F class for a year).

Anyway, this is similar: Who can create an itinerary on either UA or AA (but not both) that would have you fly into or out of each state they serve, on actual metal (not affiliates)?

Guidelines:

1) You don't have to fly both into and out of the state on the airline. You can drive into the state and fly out. You can fly in on one airline as long as you fly out of your chosen airline.

2) Backtracking is allowed

3) Cost is not an issue

Have fun!

I take it you mean to say that you could fly in by, say, Southwest, but you'll have to depart by either UA or AA. Or you could do it the other way round.

This reminds me of a challenge a UK magazine ran a few years ago where you had to visit every cathedral in our country by train in the quickest time! (There are some cathedrals in England that are not in large towns or cities)

FYI it is Delaware.

UA's First to Fifty was a promotion based on the fact that UA was the first, and only airline to fly to all fifty states.

UA flew into Wilmington DE, which is about twenty five miles from PHL. The airports are about 35 miles apart.

If I understand what Zrs70 wants to do is fly into PHL and it would be permisable to drive to Delaware and back to PHL.

Think UA still flies to 49 states. I may be wrong about Mississippi though. But you could fly to MSY and drive to MS under Zrs70s rules.

AFAIK, it might be quicker to drive from MEM
