I know this topic has been addressed in the past, but I'm fascinated with the history of Dallas' Love Field (being from the area) and would love to hear from some of the members who visited the airport before it was replaced by DFW in 1974. What was it like? I have a few specific questions too:
- from glancing over old timetables, it looks as though both American and Braniff had very busy schedules at DAL. Who was busier?
- were the facilities very crowded? They look like they were considered very modern for their day.
- I've heard the main baggage claim hall used a 'shelf' system for incoming luggage. How did this work?
I hope you all can share your memories of DAL with me, as I'm too young to know what it was like. Sorry for bringing up an old topic, and hopefully we can stay out of the Wright Amendment debate.
