UA's Orlando-Miami-Caracas-Port of Spain flight is now O'Hare-Miami-Caracas. Does not go to POS anymore. Lauada's VIE-MUC-MIA flight was a codeshare with LH, which brought in the MUC passengers. Flight suspended for winter. In the spring, they will either re-start it or LH will takeover MIA-MUC. Some more routes:

Lima-Guayquil-Miami AeroContinente 762

Santiago-Punta Cana-Miami LanChile 763

Vienna-Orlando-Puerto Plata Lauda 763 (discontinued)

Amsterdam-Miami-San Jose Martinair 763

Miami-London Gatwick Delta L1011 (disc)

Miami-Frankfurt Delta L1011 (disc)

Miami-Port Au Prince-Pointe Pitre-Fort de France-Cayenne Air France A320 and ERJ

Caracas-Fort de France Air France A320

Miami-San Pedro Sula-San Salvador Iberia A319

Cape Town-Ft. Lauderdale-Atlanta SAA 744

Wasn't there a LHR-YUL-PIT route by British Airways using 747-100s?

BA never repeat never operated MAN-JFK-YYZ using 757s. Primarily because (a) operated only a few long-haul flights - arround 10 a year - from MAN used 757s and (b) they stopped serving YYZ from MAN in 1980.

The regional long-haul flights from BA in the mid-1990s were:

GLA-JFK-BOS using 757s
BHX-JFK-YYZ using 757s
MAN-YYZ using 767s
MAN-LAX using 767s

They marketed a through route to BOS from JFK to MAN passengers.

But if you want an odd flight from MAN, try Air Seychelles 767s in 1994/5 to Seychelles.

David/MAN: 228 and counting

Kelowna-Kamloops-Reno Canadian 737-200 was way cool, I still remember seeing CP 737s then. I think they should bring that route back.

When DL took over Pan Am's north atlantic routes, we got all kinds of screwball PAA leftovers. Initally the CLE-DTW-LGW route was with A310-300's then Delta transitioned it to L-1011's. We had some Miami routes leftover, to FRA and LGW but those didn't last too long. I am kind of curious how a DL A310 would look in the wavy-gravy colors arent you? Big grin
