I have mentioned in a few threads how many carriers have served the PDX
market at one time or another in the last 30 years or so. (21 I can count so far) It was a great way to experience different airlines and aircraft types, often times being the tail end of a long flight, for a small amount of money. Sometimes as low as $10-12, I used to fly as a teenager back and forth in a day a few times, putting my flights together a day before and flying up to 4 carriers in a day, just to take off and land, (my favorite parts of flying). So what I'd like to know is other than what I listed here, can anyone add to my list of planes and airlines that have flown this route at 1 time or another in the past 30 years or so. Also the shortest scheduled US 747 route I can find.
I am not counting OAK

(very short lived) don't know the aircraft type.
Not sure, I believe Cascade may have done it right near the end of their existence, but I'm still pretty skeptical. I know there have been a few
commuter routes to Boeing field. Anyway, this is in my opinion, was one of the most well served routes in America, and a great way to experience different carriers and aircraft, you may have never flown on otherwise. any thoughts?
