NW only had authority to fly LAX
3x/week...this may have hurt high fare business traffic against the daily (or more) UA
skeds. Also, as mentioned NW
faced restrictions on the 4x weekly SYD
-OSA route making it unprofitable. NW
pulled out of both routes simultaneously in April 1994.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.
