Auctioning the June 1988 North Amer OAG, so more trivia from the listing:
Another California Airline we never heard of: the OAG calls it Qwest (QWest?) Air. Davies calls it Quest Air and says it flew only during 1988. According to this OAG the route map was SAN
; they flew Dornier 228s supposedly.
As I recall Eastern's MCI
hub expired later in 1988; at this point they have nonstops to MCI
from ABQ ATL BOS ORD DTW IND LAS LAX MIA MKE LGA EWR OKC OMA MCO PHL PHX STL SAN SFO SEA TUL DCA
and prop flights from 18 more cities. EWR
and back, LGA
and back are A300s; the latter are flights 1-2.
Dunno if this was near the peak of CO
's Denver operation, but I count 48 airports that have nonstops to DEN
on both UA
. Not UA
-- both. UA
has two DC-8-71s OMA
SunWorld has shrunk-- they now have nine LAS
DC9 roundtrips a week, nothing else.
Lufthansa has a weekly COND STOPOVER TRAFFIC DC-10 BOS
and a twice-weekly 747 DFW
flies an Il-62 YMX
. (By the way-- in earlier years when BA
flew the Concorde IAD
it wasn't in the North Amer OAG-- couldn't it carry stopover traffic?)
MGM Grand Air has three 727 F-class-only JFK
roundtrips, two XSa and one XMoTu. Rather than call them flights 1 thru 6 they figured their emptyheaded clientele would be more impressed by flights 100-200-300-400-500-600.
has seven D9S SJC
, three D9S SJC
, three D9S SJC
and two 733 SJC
. Still no mention of Continental West, if that's what it was. I wonder if AA
Eagle really flew two Convair roundtrips BUR
-- I don't remember seeing them, and I should have.
Princeton Air Link flies Islanders ABE
and back, twice on TuWe and four times a day the rest of the week.
On the LGA
flights, PA offers U class NO RESERVATION SERVICE along with the other choices-- EA
doesn't. (Neither uses widebodies now.) U class is the only choice on Southern Jersey Airways' Twin Otter, one round trip AIY-WWD, and also on PBA's Cessnas from EWB to MVY and ACK
. They have backup Cessnas for the rush?
