Snapshot: March 1982 North Amer OAG

Sat Dec 24, 2005 9:54 am

Another auction listing, so more extracts:

United's 737 Reno-Elko-Ely-SLC doesn't show it's to be discontinued, but it will be soon. Sky West is to begin EKO-RNO nonstop on 1 April and Air Chaparral's EKO-RNO nonstops are Pending Govt Approval; if it all pans out Elko will have eight nonstops a day to Reno. Air Chaparral also flies to WMC, HTH and TPH (but not from Elko, maybe).

Altair F28s fly ROC-BUF-PHL-RDU-GSO and BDL-PHL-DCA-JAX. Muse Air has just the one route, DAL-HOU with D98s (as they were then coded).

Braniff has a couple months to live; most of their flights touch DFW, but they also have MSP-MCI-TUL-IAH and LGA-IAH-ACA, and of course the DC-8-62s from SFO-LAX and JFK-IAD to South America. Texas International is still around too-- they disappeared (the name did, that is) later that year.

Guy-America Airways has weekly 707s JFK-SJU and JFK-MIA, and TWA has 707s too (until 1983).

Imperial has 30 nonstop Bandeirantes each weekday SAN-LAX; Mission Airlines has one Piper each weekday SEE-LAX and Airspur's Aravas MYF-LAX are Pending Govt Approval. Las Vegas Airlines has three a day VGT-GCN-- I thought that North Las Vegas service was a short-lived phenomenon, but not that short it seems.

Wien has a SaSu 727 PUO-FAI-ANC-SEA-BOI-SLC-PHX. NW has a 72S FLL-MIA-ORD-MSP-FAR-BIS-BIL-HLN-MSO-GEG-SEA and another MSP-FAR-BIS-BIL-BZN-HLN-GEG-SEA-SFO.

Dont you just love those flights????

I have a February 1974 North American OAG and there are many many multi-stop milk run flights like that with big jets even.....I would love to take that NW flight mentioned above....how fun that would be to do that...9 stops in a 727-200....
Ill have to go thru my OAG form 74 and post some of the highliights....
The local service flights like Southern, North Central, Ozark, Hughes Airwest, Piedmont are very well known for those milkrun flights. Its probably where the term puddlejumper came from...
back then you could just about get to any place without having to put yourself thru the torture of transiting a HUB. Flights might not have been as frequent but they were much more interesting....

In your March 1982 OAG take a look at how many TWA and Delta and Eastern destinations are served out of OHare. The airlines were different animals back then less dependant on the HUB and spoke crap and more into the linear operations.
