Who Was WH?

Mon Jul 16, 2007 9:08 pm

Hi everyone. I'm new here at a.net.
Have enjoyed the site tremendously the last few months and decided to finally join.

I need some help in finding out who "WH" was.
Back in Nov.'87 I flew a small airline from MIA to FLL. I don't remember the airline's name, but I do know the airline code was "WH". I flew on an Embraer 110 Bandeirante.

If anyone can dig up an old Nov.'87 OAG and find out for me I'd be very grateful.

Thanks and have a great day everyone!

Hi NA747,

welcome onboard!!

I think you are talking about Comair, which had the MIA-FLL route operated with EMB equipment.

Hi RAFVC10....
It could've been, I'm not sure. Was Comair still unafilliated with DL back in '87?
I remember it wasn't a codeshare flight or anything like that. Thanks, Gerard

Quoting NA747 (Thread starter):

ComAir's code was "OH", not "WH", before they started code sharing with DL. The code was for their home state, OHio.

According to the book "Airlines Coding & Airports Decoding" from EPS Aviation Productions, WH is the code for China Northwest Airlines.

Can't picture them flying MIA-FLL with Bandairates.  rotfl

they had 3 EMB-110 flights between FLL-MIA ea day.

Hi Chrisjake....
Thanks very much!  thumbsup 
That sounds about right.
I'll do a history search on Caribbean Express. I wasn't sure if it was Caribbean Express or Dolphin.
Really appreciate it!
