|Quoting longhauler (Reply 6):|
In 1957, the only transport aircraft capable of flying IDL-ATH non-stop with any appreciable load would have been the L1649A, or the DC-7C.
As ATH was TWA "territory" my guess too would be TWA using a L1649A. It had been introduced into passenger service during 1957.

I don't believe TWA operated IDL-ATH scheduled nonstop service with the L-1649A, unless it was a one-off special flight of some type.
