Quoting Lexy (Reply 1): Quoting Mirrodie (Thread starter):
What are the limitations of flying in there? Are only props allowed in there?
As far as I know, yes only props are allowed there. I think the largest airplane that flies there is the Saab 340's of Pen Air. I have seen Metro's there and Saab's, but nothing larger than that.
AS operated their 737-200C combis into DUT for years. There was an article in Airways magazine a few years ago covering an AS flight between ANC and DUT. That's probably the article the original poster is referring to.

You know, I bet it is. I haven't heard of anyone flying 737's out ot the islands in a while. That's not to say they don't, but I just haven't seen anything about it. I know "Airways" magazine did a piece on the AS 737-300 Combi (half cargo and half pax), and it's flights to places north of the Artic Circle in Alaska. Now that was an intresting read to say the least.
