Those routes made TW an Around-the-World carrier
|Quoting SkyyMaster (Reply 5):|
the trans-Pacific routes were indeed always a drain on profits and maintained solely for the bragging rights of being an around-the-world airline, ala Pan Am.

Interestingly, Morroco and the Azores were served until around 1979.

And before that; Algiers, Tripoli, Tunis, Nairobi, Dhahran, Entebbe, and Dar Es Salaam!

IIRC, TW operated a 747 service from STL to HNL at one point. This was after the closure of the Trans-Pacific routes operated by the 707 puddle jumpers from HNL to HKG. I think the STL/HNL service closed out the Pacific operations for TW. Maybe they used the L10's, but I always thought they were 747s.
