Great info Timz. What fun to read.

And to think that we complain about stopovers and no IFE!

Boy, we sure did keep YQX busy. That was the year I was given a birthday present of a round trip flight on New York Airways LGA/IDL/LGA. That was some trip. Even I had to be weighed before being assigned a seat and boarded. My LL coach was a B377 captain and come over our home town low and slow on trips out of IDL going to Europe. It was quite a sight. Needless to say the game was held up until he disappeared in the distance.
