Can't Remember What Kind Of A/C I Flew On

Wed Mar 16, 2005 3:26 am

I was not that old but I remember in the mid 80's my family and I went from PIT to PBI or MCO. The one thing I do remember is that the first row had reward facing seats. Thanks for the help.

If it was a jet I would venture you flew a Caravelle. Some carriers had rear facing seats.

Don't think there were any Caravelles flying that route but I could be wrong. Southwest used to have rear facing seats but I don't think the first row had rear facing seats, also I don't think they were flying a route like that in the 80's.

If you flew PIT to PBI or MCO non-stop, you were on USAir. You would have been on either a 727 or a 737, or remotely possible a 757. I do not believe USAir had any Airbus equipment at that time.

United was the only U.S. airline to ever fly the Caravelle, and those were gone by the very early 1970's.

If you did not fly non-stop, there are a multitude of possibilities.

Hope that helps!!

Just to nitpick, but the Caravelle was made by Sud Aviation, not Airbus.

Whoops!! Grammatical mistake!! Thank you for pointing that out, Starlionblue...  blush 

Grammatically, what I meant say was that in the 1980's, USAir's fleet was basically all Boeing and McDonnell Douglas. They did not have any Airbus airplanes in their fleet at that time...I think. 737's, 757's, maybe the 767, and a plethora of DC-9's. What did I leave out?

And me, a junior high school teacher, making a grammar mistake like that!!  eyepopping

If I'm not mistaken, back in the 80's, US still had those pudgy ovoid windowed BA 146's. And Piedmont flew plenty of Fugly tubby Fokker F100's. A side note, when I think of the BA 146 and F 100's I think of Fugly designs such as the
