Depends on how far you want to go back in time...Medford and Eugene are cities from the ORIGINAL Pacific Air Transport system....1926 is when they began flying from Los Angeles to Seattle on Air Mail Route 8, with MANY intermediate stops along the way.
P.A.T. Merged With BOEING AIR TRANSPORT to form United Aircraft and Transport Company, finally changing to United Air Lines in 1934.
Flights have with few exceptions, been on the North-South route along the Pacific Coast; Medford and Eugene were stops along the important corridor.
In the late 70's, MFR
to SFO 3X
a day. 1X to Salem on to Portland.
Eugene had 1X to PDX
, and 3X
. All B737-200, All the time.
In the 80's route rationalization period, where service ended at smaller stations like Muskegon, Elko, Pendleton, and CharlestonWV, the PDX
flights were dropped altogether, with SLM
closing soon after.
At various points in the decade, both Eugene and Medford had a nonstop to Denver. When there wasn't a nonstop MFR
, there at least was a MFR
. Both cities maintained between 3X
. It fluctuated a lot in the early 80's as did much of the economy in the NW
, as reflected by the service levels provided by United.
Then it went Shuttle to SFO
, and then nothing....I guess, I'm not sure, haven't been paying attention lately.
