Pan Am in Middle East question

Fri Jul 14, 2017 1:29 am

In AC to Beirut thread, some are ignoring PA ops to the region and only mentioned short runs by United and Delta. if I'm not mistaken PA were there for decades or weren't they?

Pan Am had sizeable operation in Beirut. Here is a thread from a long time ago discussing it:
viewtopic.php?t=147447

If you check out YouTube..there are some neat videos of Pan Am in Beirut.

I always associated TWA with Beirut, but after looking it up, now I know why--because of TW847. 1985 was not a good year for aviation.

Pan Am served Cairo briefly, if at all.
TWA on the other hand maintained a presence in CAI for many years. First with their Constellations, then Boeing 707s, then Boeing 727/737s at some point. The routing traditionally would have been something like JFK-PAR-ROM/ATH-CAI but for example TW847 was operating CAI-ATH-FCO-BOS-LAX-SAN . The 737s would Towards the end (2000-2001) they were operating JFK-CAI-RUH using the Boeing 767.
PA operated JFK-BAH/DHA nonstop using the Boeing 747SPs, and I think flew routes like FRA-RUH/FRA-DXB-KHI/BOM towards the end using A310s.

Correct. TW never operated any 737s. I am sure he means the 727, that TWA far and wide over Europe and the Mediterranean.

If I remember correctly, I saw a PA 732 at DBV apron in the early '80s, but the route was mainly operated by the 722s, as were the flights to BEG and ZAG at the time.

I think it was FCO-CAI-BEY-FCO for a few months.

It did not last long and that was the only time PA ever served Cairo, a traditional TWA city.

PA was on again, off again at Ankara IIRC. There for several years until the late 70's then left, then back in 1981, left again, back in Acker's buildup in 83' then gone like so many of those cities he added and then back under Plaskett in 88 or 89.

I worked for SAPTCO in the Eastern Provinces 1980-1982. The airplane that I flew between JFK and Dhahran was a PanAm 747 Sp. The service was non-stop, roughly 12>5 hours eastbound and either 13.5 or 13.75 hours westbound. I believe in was flights 24 and 25 and were operated jointly with Saudia. However, the plane, crew and bar service was strictly PanAm.

Exactly. Thanks for clarifying. Although was it ever with tha AA code? I believe they used the TW flight number until they cut CAI and RUH?

As noted upthread, TWA served Cairo and Riyadh until and even after the AA takeover, i.e. 2002 at least.

None of them ever served Jeddah ?


I'm fairly sure TW dropped the JFK-CAI-RUH flight in Fall 2001.

I recall TWA operating 707s into BAH briefly during the 1979/80 period (I think between the two suspensions of the Pam Am SP BAH service. The old BAH terminal layout had a great roof terrace which I used to watch the planes from and I am sure I can find a log showing a TWA 707 frame in BAH.

Correct - flight operated after AA took over TWA, but TW was still operating as a separate carrier. Last timetable with the flight was 9/5/01.

I want to say JFK-CAI-RUH ended by October 2001.

Karachi isn't in ME, it's in Sout Asia also known as Indian subcontinent.


And it's psuedo intellectual pinheads that don't thank you for the contribution & time, but instead only need to feed their need to nit pick something so insignificant, it make me wonder why I even bother with this.



Sad and True!!

What an absolute tragedy we lost all these Classic American Carriers and now we are STUCK with less than a hand full of airlines to tolerate. Our choice has been taken away my friends.
