Which Airline Flies To The Most States With Jets

Wed Oct 19, 2005 8:49 am

I was wondering. Which airline flies to the most states using some type of jet aircraft. No propellers attached.

I want to say either DL or NW, but im not sure.

Gotta be DL since they're anti-prop. Now if the question was "The most Midwestern states" then of course it was NW. They'll fly a DC-9 to a dirt strip as long as it's west of I-75 and east of the Rockies.

DL flies to 48 states and 2 US Territories with jets. Leaving out North Dakota and Delaware.
DL flies to 47 states and 2 US Territories with jets from ATL. With the South Dakota service going to CVG (from FSD) and SLC (from RAP).
It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

I dont think anyone can beat Delta in this. Northwest could tie. I know they dont fly any jets to Deleware or West Virginia (surprise, surprise). Im not sure if NW flies to every other state, but if they do they have a jet there.

Is that one exception state ex-ATL VT? If it is, Delta is sending CRJs BTV-ATL soon.
What now?

But if you're 400 miles east of I-75, you get your DC9 downgraded to a Saab 340, like here in ABE.

NW/Airlink flies to every state but Delaware, but they don't fly jets to every state. I believe the exception is WV, which XJ serves with the SAAB.

OR you never have anything more than saabs to begin with, and still, somehow, take service reductions.

Hey, a SAAB to the Chuck Yeager field in Charleston, WV is pretty appropriate - a good plane, to an airport honoring a real airplane hero - don't fuss about it, enjoy it

You mean Yeager Airport. And why shouldn't I fuss again?

Not to be critical, but why fuss about it? The guys in Airlink Planning aren't going to change a 340 to a CRJ just because you think it is a good idea. Why worry about things you cannot control?

If I remember correctly, United used to advertise "first to fly to all 50 states" on the cover of their system timetable many years ago (1980s). Of course, I know the question was asking about today, but back then, UA did all 50.

Well you seem to mention it a lot, which led me to believe that it was a wish of yours.

But the fact you think this is based on a wish or dream of mine...simply preposterous.

I wouldn't talk this much about a silly dream anyway.
