Did TWA get the STL-Tokyo route?

Thu Mar 11, 1999 1:17 am

Did they? I think they did, but are delaying the start-up due to the economy. At least their website would have you think that way.

Do they have aircraft that can operate that route non-stop? Is the 767
capable of doing that route?
I've flown on 9V-SPK.

if they did what sort of aircraft will they use? The only long range aircraft they have is the 767, and i don't even know if its the ER.....Hmmm would you want to fly all that way on a 767?

I would like to fly a 767 that far. They are a very comfortable widebody. Don't forget they have one fewer seat width wise as the fuselage is a smaller cross section. I have found a seat on a 767 to be as comfortable as any other. I think the most important detail is how the individual airline outfits the aircraft.
By the way, TWA has a bunch of 767-200ER's and all of their 767-300's are ER's.

Will the flight stop on the west coast or in Honolulu? Most flights to asia are flown by larger aircraft such as the A340 or 747-400's. I dont think a TW 767 could handle that route, but I may be wrong.

767 Transpacific

Fri Mar 12, 1999 4:23 am

It is true that most airlines operate larger, longer-range aircraft on transpacific routes. But Air Canada did operate the Vancouver-Seoul route with a 767-300ER and Canadian still operates the Vancouver-Beijing route with a 767-300ER (5300 miles). Air Canada's longest 767 flight is Toronto-Tel Aviv (5800 miles), but St. Louis-Tokyo would be close to 6400 miles. Would the 767 suffice?
Next flights: YQM-YOW-YOW / YQM-YYZ-CPH-YYZ-YQM / YQM-YUL-LYS-BRU-YUL-YQM / YQM-PUJ-YQM
