Couldn't find the thread-- but a while back guys were discussing early ETOPS flights and somebody said Air France flew an A300 from JFK to the Caribbean in the late 1970s. Sure nuff, the 3/76 OAG shows a nonstop A300 from JFK to Pointe a Pitre. Of course they could stay within 60 minutes/400 nm (or whatever) of an airport with a moderate dogleg, but seems to me the guy said they did get outside the 60-minute limit. Anybody heard of such a thing at that time?
Would it have to be an A300B2 in 3/76? Would that be a longish trip for a B2?
