BDL To Washington DC In 1989

Tue Mar 28, 2006 9:04 am

Hi, im trying to figure out what my first flight was in 1989. I was two so its rather hard... All I know is the year and it was june. It was direct. So if someone has some old OAG's id really appreciate it.

no idea sry, i figured thats where id get hung up. My guess was US into DCA or did UA operate 737's from BDL as my mom said it was a twin so I thought 737 and US

If it's out of DCA, it's USAir, if it's out of IAD, it's UA. US ran about five flights a day from DCA to BDL and UA ran about four from IAD.

I wonder if Eastern would have had a couple BDL-DCA flights at that time; they did operate that route at various times.

If it's June of 1989, EA may have already pulled out of that route. EA filed for Chapter 11 in July of 1989, I believe, and was flying a drastically paired-down schedule at the time. I know that by early 1990, most of the DCA flying was to Florida and ATL. The Shuttle had already been sold off.

Didn't Pilgim fly F-28s from BDL to DCA or was it flown through HVN?

Eastern stopped flying DCA-BDL and DCA-PVD in March 1989 when the strike began. (As well as DCA to several other points) The routes never reappeared. At the end EA only flew from DCA to ATL, BOS, FLL, MIA, MCO, TPA, and PBI
