Despite what someone above said, the first operator of the 767-300 was Japan Air Lines. But anyways, I flew a noontime 767-200 from Miami to Atlanta on Delta, it was my first 767 flight, and let me tell you, missing your flight in the early 90's was a dream comet true. I was supposed to be on a non-stop 727 from Miami back to Boston, but in the end, I was in charge of reading the time on the tickets. I read them wrong
. We get to the airport and get told that the plane had left. Not only did I get to spend I an extra day in Florida, I got to fly home on a 767 to the Kingdom of Delta, and then a 727 to Boston.
In Boston they often fly smaller planes more often. For instance, Continental's EWR-BOS is the most travelled route in their network, par flights, not passengers. The Boston-New York Region (LGA, JFK, HPN, EWR) is the second most travelled route in the country, by pax, yet on those routes, bo plane larger than a 737-800 is used. United flys 737's, and A320's to IAD. AA flys around 15 daily flights to ORD, I think one of those flights is on a 757, the rest are on 737's, F100's, and MD-80's. I don't know why it matters if a larger plane flys a route less often, than a smaller plane more often.
