Inagural Flights

Fri Apr 18, 2003 6:41 am

 Smile Hi everyone!  Smile

The word came up twice now, once in the trip report section and I saw the word in a photo caption. What's an Inagural flight?

Thanks for your replies.

An inagural flight is the first flight of a given airline.
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

It is also the first flight on a route never flown by a particular carrier. If you flew the first Continental flight from Newark to Geneva, or the first flight to Tokyo from Los Angeles on American (that flight has been postponed), you would be on the inaugural flight.
