UA, PA, TW and DL all had 727s based in Europe at some point in the 80s or 90s.

DL had a hub in frankfurt which they offered connecting service to various destinations from FRA. The 727s did not fly transatlantic routes.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

It wasn't  Smile But it probably had the legs to ferry across the Atlantic nonstop with no passengers aboard...

They were especially used for Berlin TXL. Only allied airlines, that means Air France, US airlines and BA were allowed to fly to Berlin, therefore some were stationed in Germany. They also flew other sectors, but the Berlin route was especially important.

PA had 727s based in Europe starting in the 1960s mainly for their intra-German routes to/from Berlin Tempelhof, and other 5th freedom tag-on sectors. The 727-100s replaced DC-6Bs on those routes.

Better than ferry. Take a few seats out, put some extra tanks in, and it will cross no problems. I flew on 4 East Harford, CT to BRU roundtrips, non-stop both ways in such a configured 727-100.

When I was at Reeve we where doing charters to the russian far east with 727-100's. About half the time they could make the eastbound trip non-stop depending on the wind gods.

Westbound wasn't an issue.

I was a refueller at BNA in late 2000 and refueled DL 727-200's. A few of these had auxiliary fuel tanks. Maybe they were the ones ferried across the Atlantic Ocean (possibly with a stop in Newfoundland) and operated within Western Europe.

Good Day  Smile
