ATL In 1990

Tue Nov 06, 2007 9:46 pm

Can someone please tell me the following information:

1. How many international destinations were there from ATL nonstop in 1990 and by carrier
2. How many daily departures did EA and EA* have in 1990 from ATL

Quoting EXAAUADL (Thread starter):
2. How many daily departures did EA and EA* have in 1990 from ATL

I think I can get some of this.

On the March 2,1989 timetable, EA had about 290 mainline. On March 4, they had one departure. By 1990, they had built back ATL pretty good with about 270 mainline. I think FL has passed this, but with smaller aircraft, probably less total seats.

Hope that helps. And YES, I did count all the flights in the timetables!  Smile

In 1990, Delta had nonstop service from ATL to:
BDA, daily L1011
DUB via SNN, 6x weekly L15
FRA, daily L15
HAM via LGW, daily L15
LGW also had a second daily flight, L15 as well
MEX, daily 757
MUC, daily L15
NAS, daily 757 and 727
ORY, daily 763
STR daily via AMS, L15

Lufthansa had daily FRA service, 742 IIRC
Swissair had daily ZRH service, 743
JAL also served ATL back then 2x weekly, but had a stop enroute, ANC I believe, 742
KLM should have also been at ATL back then, 742 as well.

Swiss ended in September 2001, IIRC, but it was not a result of 9/11. The route was discontinued before that.

What about LT? I recall flying through ATL sometime in 1991 or late 1990, and we were flying to DUS-SJO on a charter flight, and ATL was the stopover point for LT at the time.

I remember flying EA in May 1990....EWR-ATL-DAB,
(ARNK) MCO-ATL-EWR....The strike was still going on
and they had strikers manning the informational picketing
tables set up in the EA concourse with tape around it on
the floor showing the border....anyone remember this?
I also remember the female ticket and gate agents
wearing hats with their new uniforms.
