Airports That Used To Have Widebodies

Fri Oct 04, 2002 11:27 am

Looking through my old OAG's, it amazing to see the large planes is smaller cities where there are no longer many widebodies.

Examples:

TW L1011 DAY-STL

UA DC10 OMA-DEN

TW L1011 Freeport-JFK

AA/ UA DC10 BDL-ORD

DL L1011 BDL-BOS/ATL (yes, I know DL still has 767's into BDL)

WA DC10 GRF-SLC

DL L1011 BDL-BOS/ATL (yes, I know DL still has 767's into BDL)

DL also used to run L1011's BDL-BOS-BDA.

Prosa, yes, the L10 BDL-BOS continued to BDA!

EA also has L10's BDL-EWR

I believe BIL used to get NW DC-10s.

They still get occasional UPS 767-300s when a 757 is outta service... Closest to scheduled widebody nowadays for passenger is UA 757s on saturday nights/sunday mornings to DEN. Also, NW 747s do touch and goes occasionally....

Didn't COS get the UA D10s a long time ago?

I believe BUF, ROC, and possibly SYR had widebodies back then.

PSE used to get the Carnival A300's and after they were bought out by PA 2- they also sent in their A300's to JFK and EWR. As of now PSE is only served by Cessna 402's of Cape Air.

Lowfareair,

COS used to get United DC-10s just about 3 years ago.

Sadly, seeing a widebody in a small city wasn't unusual in the past. Nearly all cities in the US used to recieve widebodies at one time or another.

Oh those were the good days.........

Daily DC-10 service vs. 6 a day RJ service. Sure the daily DC-10 would be great, but the 6 frequencies make much more sense from an economic standpoint.

TWA used to send L-1011's and 767's in Columbus. I believe that stopped sometime in the mid 80's. Eastern Airlines also used to fly A300's into CMH.

Oh yes Serge, BIL had daily NW DC-10 service in the 70s. My mind is a bit foggy but I think the routing was MSP-BIL-BUT-GEG-SEA and reverse. So add BUT (Butte Montana) and GEG (Spokane) to the list.

I'll add PSP (AA DC-10), TUS (AA DC-10 and 767) and DAB (EA L-1011 and LT MD-11) to the list.

AA DFW-AUS-DFW.

And that was into the old Austin (Meuller) airport, not Bergstrom.

Quite a lot of plane for the size field, and most unexpected for a 200-mile flight.

Anyone know if GRR or TVC used to get anything like that? I don't know too much about their histories and am interested.

IMissPiedmont:

Wow, so much for a "direct" flight Big grin. That musta been pretty cool....

All I could remember is that I saw a photo in a part of the terminal in Billings, I wasn't even close to being around back then..

Heres a list of what Billings currently receives just because I'm bored:

Passenger
United to DEN: A320, 757, 737-300/500 (switches off a lot)
United Express/AWAC to DEN: BAe 146
Northwest to MSP: DC-9-30 (there used to be nonstop DC-9 service to GTF and FCA but it was cut shortly after 9-11  Sad)
Horizon to SEA: Fokker F-28-4000 (soon to be CRJ-700 in December)
America West Express to PHX (beginning 10-27-02): CRJ-200
Delta Airlines to SLC: MD-90-30
Delta Connection/Skywest to SLC: CRJ-200
Big Sky HUB: Metro IIIs and 23s

Cargo:
Fedex to GTF: Fokker F-27
Great Lakes Airlines Cargo to DEN, MSO: B1900C and B1900D
UPS to DEN and SDF: 757-200 (occasional 767-300)

Theres lots of cargo stuff I missed like Ameriflight, Corporate Air, Alpine Aviation, etc... as well as occasional scheduled charters such as: Sun Country 737-800, Casino Express 737-200, Sierra Pacific 737-200, Allegiant Air MD-87s.......

Can anyone with an older issue of OAG find out what used to fly to Wichita(ICT)? Definitely no widebodies, but probably some larger narrowbodies like the 727s.

Dont forget Delta use to fly 767's and L1011's from BDL to Florida cities before Delta express. Also, UA in the early 70's flew 741's into BDL to ORD, and all the Eastern widebodies BDL use to get. A300's to MIA and L1011's to BOS and MIA i think.

I stand to be corrected if this information is incorrect, but a few years ago when living in Albuquerque, the only widebody service was TWA L-1011 service STL-ABQ-STL. Unless new widebody service has been introduced, which I greatly doubt, that airport no longer sees widebody service by any carrier.

American used a 767 Nashville-London when they used to have a hub at BNA. I'm not sure about cargo, but to my knowledge the largest passenger aircraft operated into BNA is a 757 on Delta.

Actually the NW DC-10 flight went SEA-GTF-BIL-MSP. (There might have been a stop at GEG but I'd have to check that) There was also a NW DC-10 flight from BIL-ORD nonstop as late as mid 80's. GTF still gets a few oddball flights like an OAI DC-10 or Sierra Pacific B737-200, but is still basically stuck with Northwest, Delta, Horizon, and Big Sky..er..Mesaba?  Smile

Early 80's, UAL flew 762's BUR-ORD. We still get the widebodys twice a day from FedEx but in terms of passenger service, like others mentioned above, those days are gone!

In the early eighties, when Hilo was being touted as "The Second Gateway to Hawaii", they received DC-10s and 747s from United and other carriers. Even the ill fated 747-122 N4713U was a frequent visitor.

While growing up in Omaha, I can remember these widebody flights:

Eastern L-1011/A300 ATL-OMA
United DC-8, DC-10, 763, 762 DEN/ORD-OMA
Northwest DC-10 MSP-OMA

I remember seeing Western DC-10s, CO A300s, and TWA L-1011s/762s, but I don't know if they were scheduled aircraft...But, I saw them frequently enough to suggest that they probably were.

ROC used to get A^A DC-10's from LGA in the 70's . What a change,now we get ERJ's. The only time we get a heavy is Fed Ex's A310 and the occasional A300. Near Christmas we get some oddballs (Kalitta L1011)

TVC had an Evergreen DC8-63 taking high school students to Washington DC. It departed in the morning and returned either that day at night or the next day back in the 70's.

GRR has had L1011's from ATA and also had a DC10 (Cant remember the airline) charter to Europe... There is a photo of it at the airport. GRR also sees many NW diversions.

The largest planes TVC will see is 757's in the future. Then, it will be only peak season (Summer) if it happens. The new terminal is being made to handle 757's.

This is kind of close to the topic...
A Beluga once landed at LGA when an Air Canada plane broke down.

Usairways85
AA use to fly 747 -100, -200 (I think), -SP to LHR. (They currently use 767s and 777s, not sure about A300s.)

I remember being by Toledo Airport when I was a little kid and seeing a Northwest DC-10 take off from there. This was sometime in the early 1980s.

DTW used to have a lot more widebody service from the other majors.

The only majors that offer widebody service to DTW now

Northwest DC-10-30 and 747-200, 747-400
Delta 767-200

Other companies that used to fly widebodies into DTW

American- DC-10-10 (service ended mid 90s)767-200 (service ended early 90s) 767-300 (service ended mid 90s)

Delta- L1011 (service ended mid 90s) 767-300 (service just prior to 9/11 to CVG and ATL, 762- only to ATL now)

Eastern- A300, L1011 - early 80s

Pan Am- 747s, L1011s, DC-10s, A300s, A310s- all service ended in the late 80s

TWA- L1011s, 767-200s - service ended mid 80s

United- 767-200s- service ended early 90s, 767-300s (service prior to 9/11) DC-10s-service ended 2000


International former widebody service

Sabena- 747, DC-10 ended late 80s
British Airways- 747, 777 (service prior 9/11- BA only uses a 767-300 now)
Alitalia- 747
LOT- 767-300
JAT- DC-10

NW with MKE-MSP service was mentioned with 742 service.

In recent (2 years) time, the D14 was the trunkliner vehicle, efforting a competitive nature with YX by serving direct service to SFO after the MSP stop.

This has since been downgraded to the 753...

OK, SierraAir, I will not dispute the eastboud NW SEA-MSP routing. I just do not remember for sure and am just not in the mood to check through a walk in closet full of OAGs at theis time. I'm still researching another question that I thought would take 2 weeks. I'ts now going on 4.

Anyway. The westbound flight did fly from Butte-Spokane-SEA. I rode the GEG-SEA segment and very well remember it arriving from Butte.

Not everyone believes me when I say this, but a few years ago AA was using DC-10's for N/S TUL-DFW service.

In the early to mid 70's, during the DC-10's infancy, AA had 1-stop DC-10 service from TUL to LAX. Stop was in OKC.

I vividly remember watching a brand new (I presumed) AA 747 depart TUL one afternoon back in the early 70's. I don't know what it was doing there, but it gave me a real thrill! As I recall AA used TUL for training pilots on the 747 in the late 60's.

TUL still sees widebodies, as AA has a big maintenance base there and 76's (77's too?) come in for work on occasion.
