American, for one. In fact the first DC-3 was known as a DST (Douglas Sleeper Transport)...the Flagship Texas. There are many other carriers that had the DST version, but I believe AA was the first. Regards.

The ones I know of are American, Western, United, TWA, and Eastern. AA was the first to operate the DST, as well as the DC-3, you are 100% accurate on that one, FlagshipAZ.

Thrust, have you seen the Aeromoe website?? It'll list all the US-based operators of the DC-3/DST. Very interesting if you're into propliners history such as I am.
