BDR had BAe 146 jets into ORD via HVN, something like ORD-HVN-BDR, and ORD-BDR-HVN-ORD. Not sure if they ever did the BDR-ORD leg nonstop. This was early/mid 80s.
Wow - I didnt think too many people remembered that service even existed!
Tcttx: You were right, to my recollection, the BDR
flights always passed thru HVN, then to ORD
. The plane RON'd at BDR
. One interesting facet to this operation was that for a short while before they pulled out, Air Wisconsin had secured some LGA
slots and had to keep them open. So they ran an oddly timed HVN-BDR
routing too - in a 146! Shortly after that, they pulled out of both BDR
and HVN altogether.

Unless DL dropped it (can't keep track of what DL does anymore/not sure I care anymore) - New Haven has CRJs to CVG...
Yea, unfortunately, HVN lost that service this past January. It was a shock, as the loads, from what I understand, were good. I dropped a relative off at HVN for the 1:20pm departure on a Tuesday one day, and they were soliciting for volunteers! We hope they'll come back, as the staff there told us they believed it was more due to Delta's BK and that the DL
Connection RJs were going to pick up more DL
flying .... but then we see them announcing new routes like ATL
-ILG and ATL
-SOP and nothing about a reinstatement to HVN. I think we've seen the last of DL
Connection , unfortunately. Maybe US will finally throw us a bone and make one of their PHL
fllights an RJ
-or better yet, do a HVN-CLT
run in one.
Some other 'jet' facts that I remember in New England's past:
- Pilgrim ran a once weekly (Sun) service for a few months in their single F-28
. This was mainly a positioning flight to get the F28
down to JFK
for the evening YOW
flight after it spent the weekend at the
- Northeast flew DC-9's in and out of not only ACK
and MVY, but HYA
in a few different combinations of routings.
- Both Northeast (and later DL
) ran DC9s into PQI
(Presque Isle, ME) from
- Allegheny ran DC9-30s and BAC1-11s into HVN on BOS
and vv in
- Eastern ran 727-100s on JFK
and DC9s on HVN-DCA
in the early 70s
I'll stop now .. LOL
I turn Tops into Bottoms.
