All of your responses are much appreciated, I was told by my Dad, he thought it was PA, buit with PA not having domestic rights in 1970, I questioned it, which is why I was suspecting TW
, you know globe on the tail, white fuselage etc..
But I know PA didd fly JFK
as a connection from Intl flights, the question remains, was PA able to carry passengers, connecting off of other carriers Intl flights, if part of the original Intl ticket, like a mileage fare?
We flew DL
on a DC-8 on the way over in June 1970, Dad says it was the milk run, with stops in at least DFW
and possibly CVG
, Dad mentioned all 3 cities, leaving late at night from LAX
stop was middle of the night and dawn arriving into ATL
But he swears the return leg JFK
was non-stop, and the biggest plane we had been on ever, definatly a widebody. I used to have an SAA timetable still from 1970 when we took the trip, just can't find it, I'm guessing that arrival time, may help figure that JFK
leg out a bit more.
If anyone has an OAG or timetables from Aug 1970 and can help any more I'd surely appreciate it. It's the one and only in question flight I have left from my entire life long travels, at this time I was 4 years old, and don't recall much about the flights, other than I was so excited I threw up, but had enough room in Y to sleep on the floor of the SAA 707's still with enough leg room for my folks and older sister.
As a uninformed member, I guess, but reasonably smart about the industry, I need help understanding how to get a RR, at least one would be nice. Am I missing something? I post often and am polite and have had several repeaat members talk via the many threads, I'm wanting to upgrade to first class membership, but wanted help with this subject before doing so. I know not the best way to ask this, but you seasoned members may have some friendly tips, Thanks. I don't know why, but it's kind of important to me, seems to me, I may be taken more seriously. A private msg reply may be the best way to explain this to me. Sorry if this question offends anyone in this forum, but I'm sure some of you helpful folks wouldn't mind helping me understand this, given my posts, I'd like to beleive someone thinks I'm half smart about the industry, having been in it for more than half my life. Thanks fellow A.netters
