In the 70's they served at one point:
SFO, LAX, OAK, DEN, LAS, PHX, TUS, ABQ, MCI, ICT, BOS, BDL, LGA, JFK, EWR, CMH, DAY, PIT, PHL, DCA, BAL, MDT, LHR, CDG. They had hourly service to LGA, in competition with AA (UA was third in the market then with less frequent service), the LHR flight was daily on a 747, CDG operated on and off, sometimes with a 747, sometimes with a 707. L10's were on routes to LAS, LAX, PHX, ABQ, SFO, DEN, LGA, PIT, PHL, BOS. The only gate on G they didn't operate from was G1, which was AC's lone gate for flights to YYZ, YUL and YWG.

I remember taking ORD-LHR several times in the late 70's, early 80's. Flts. 730/731 IIRC. Back then, there were only two Chicago-London flights: One on TWA the other on BA.
|Quoting Chase (Reply 17):|
Wasn't there a fire onboard an L-1011 at ORD, which was either a TZ aircraft with a TW crew, or vice-versa? I seem to remember hearing that the crew did an excellent job getting the pax off.
|Quoting TheFlyGuy2 (Reply 23):|
Did TWA ever fly any international routes from ORD and when?
|Quoting UnitedTristar (Reply 22):|
The only major TZ fire at ORD was on a DC-10-40 that they leased from NW. That fire is one of the reasons that TZ droped the 10 for the Tristar.
