727 PAX Operators In US

Thu Jan 08, 2004 8:41 pm

I am taking a trip to the US next month and I'd like to travel on some 727s. I know that PAN AM fly some on the east coast, but could anyone let me know where else I can expect to be able to fly in a 727 on the east coast?

Try TransMeridian (http://www.tmair.com), they fly some up-state NY to Florida trips with 727s. Laker Air flies some trips to the Bahamas, but their schedule changes frequently so I don't know if they fly up to the Northeast now or not.

Best of luck!

Laker offers 2Xweekly service from PVD to FPO (Freeport Bahamas) on Mondays and Thursdays. 3-day packages for air+hotel start at $299.00 US.
Most of the other 72S operators are charters.

Yep, and they just, apparently, gave new life to one from the desert the other day. While on FBOweb, I noticed a Champion 727-200 heading from VCV (Victorville, CA) to MSP. That said "rebirth" of a three-holer to me!  Smile

The Champion flights out of VCV are probably Military charters...

Hi!

Sunworld was operating 2 727-200 advanced with winglets. Just charter ops. Apple Vacations uses them quite a bit. Not sure if their still flying. You'll see them mainly around PIT and points SE of PIT.

ChampionAir plans on flying the 727 till 2006 before switching to the 757.
