Was Delta the first airline to operate Trans-Atlantic service out of CVG? If so what year did it start and what was the first route?

They were the first and started service to LGW in 1987. Seems like only yesterday.  Big grin

According to CVG's website, there is no actual date/airline, but I did find that the first commercial flight landed in 1947 from CLE operated by Boone County Airline. International arrivals terminal was built in 1978 and Delta made it a hub in 1981.

While it's not the answer to your question, I would venture to say that it probably was Delta in the early 80's.
