Summer time in Portugal, hot weather, nice warm sea, nice food..... I remember many years ago ( maybe 30 years already.... ) to be at LIS
airport and waiting for those US charter airlines arriving in the morning with planes full of tourists or portuguese emigrants that came to pass their vacations. Charter airlines line CAPITOL, TIA
, EVERGREEN, ONA
will fly mostly with their long Super Sixty DC-8's, but also some other not that usual like INTERCONTINENTAL AIRWAYS, PERFECT TOURS, SATURN, SEABOARD WORLD, WORLD AIRWAYS, ARROW AIR,.... all I want to say that in those times we anxiously expected the summer to see what airlines would be doing the charters to Portugal. Those times seems that ended, last time I remember seeing one was NORTH AMERICAN and they were flying the 757. Now my point is, are there any US charter airlines that still fly around the world tourists or emigrants? Looks not!
