1979 OAG Schedules

Sat Feb 04, 2006 3:18 am

Hello all...

Hope it is okay to post this message.

Many of you were kind enough to check out my website in the past pertaining to 1983 OAG schedules.

If you have not checked it out lately, I have added many new 1983 schedules and now started adding schedules from a 1979 OAG.

There are also many new route maps.

Again, I hope it is okay to post this message. I just thought it would be of interest to many of you.

Very nice.
Too bad that thee aren't complete listings for each city. But that would take A LOT longer to put in.

Wow.. pretty darn cool.. I never realized Ozark served RDU. AND I didn't realize how many airlines served RDu-ORF.. pretty bizarre that only 2 USExpress DH8 serve it now..
Aiming High and going far..

My memory isn't what it used to be and perhaps someone could help me find an old flight I was on in October of 1978. I was flying TLV-BOM. The flight made a stop in Tehran. I'm thinking it was an El Al flight but may be mistaken. All I know is that after we landed the airport was closed for three days. I was able to catch a flight to Kabul and then on to DEL after they reopened the airport. Any help would be appreciated. (at the time I didn't know there was a revolution starting)

Thanks for the link ... Used to take many of those flights on United (dad was a UA pilot) out of Denver Stapleton, particularly to New York JFK to visit the grandparents and #114 from HNL to LAX to DEN (and its sister flight #193 DEN to LAX to HNL) for our yearly family vacation - the only 747 service to Denver in the 1970s. I had forgotten how they posted the widebody flights in RED. Nice trip down memory lane.

Nice site.

But not to knitpick, it's Manhattan, Kansas, not Manhatten.
Ahh, the power of SABRE...

I just love your website! Hope you put in some more cities, years and internationally. Keep updates coming!! Thanks again.

TO: DFWMzuri--- the only airline that I can think of that flies a TLV-THR-BOM routing is Air France as part of its Far East routes in 1978.

TWAAF9,

Would you mind letting me know where you saw that error at so I can correct it? I appreciate it!

Thanks for the trip report  Smile

Here's something interesting: NW flight 7 in 1983 is as follows: PHL-DTW-MSP/DC10, MSP-SEA/747. If memory serves me correctly, the 747 continues to Tokyo and beyond. In August 1982, NW flight 7 was: PHL-DTW-MSP-SEA-ANC/DC10. I flew the entire segment as a "um" (I was 16 yrs old then). A breakfast and two lunches were served  Smile.

I miss those days...

Good day to all  Smile

Thanks for the memories...confirmed a bunch of stuff and raised my eyebrows at some interesting facts (most pertaining to BOS, area in which I grew up):

1. I've always thought my first flight on an L10 was BOS-MCO-BOS in late Jan/early Feb `80. This confirmed that...neat memory, 6 years old at the time and ohhh...the plane was so big compared to the others I'd been on previous.

2. There was actually scheduled service between BOS and MHT...not just with the Precision propjets, but with DL mainline 722s. Looks like this went away by `83....and service between BOS and ASH (Nashua)! I went to HS/college in the area, learned to fly out of ASH, never knew there was ever commercial service there.

3. Sheer #s of heavies on short routes to/from BOS....from BDL/YUL/all three NYC/PHL...and only service to IAD was an NW D10!

4. Some flight numbers have been on the same route at approx. the same times for a LONG time. I flew TW754 BOS-LHR and TW753 LHR-BOS in Apr `90 both ways on an L10. Flight continued onto and came from SFO, as it had back in `79. Another sad irony....AA11 was the morning BOS-LAX run as early as `79, then as a D10, not sure when it switched permanently to a 762. Very sad a 20+yr service had to meet such a tragic end.

5. By `83 BOS-DTW was all NW/republic. Believe it's still that way today.

and non-BOS related...

6. What's up with CLE? TONS of service there in `79 with the mainlines, and big airplanes to boot. Has the population of Cleveland decreased that significantly in the last 20+ years?
