How about some modern day Milk Runs?

Interesting post. Were there more 'Fifth Freedom' segments then than now? For instance, let us consider the quoted TWA routing LAX-JFK-ORY-FCO-ATH-TLV-BOM-BKK-HKG-TPE-OKA-GUM-HNL-LAX. Did all the PAX either originate or finish in the US? Could a French passenger do ORY.../...BOM?
|Quoting PanHAM (Reply 23):|
That was the "Fiesta" route and IIRC it was LHR-BDA-NAS-MEX-ACA-PPT-SYD
|Quoting ClassicLover (Reply 29):|
In addition to the Fiesta Route, there was the Wallaby Route to South Africa -

There was also QF2307 (not sure what the corresponding northbound flight number is) that was CNS-TSV-MKY-ROK-GLT-BNE, typically on a DH8-300.

Back in the day, BWIA (old BW) did many milk run services in the Caribbean. Their KIN and MIA routes popularly served many islands. For example, on the Jamaica run BW at one time did POS - BGI - ANU - SJU - KIN. Interestingly, when they started the Jamaica ops in the 1940s the plane would call at SDQ (then Ciudad Trujillo) on request! Later on the destination mix changed several times, with MIA tagged on beyond KIN (done on behalf of JM), then later SXM added as an alternative to ANU and some flights stopping in PAP (again on behalf of JM). In the 1990s BW dropped PAP and SJU and the flights became 5 weekly POS - BGI - ANU - KIN and 2 weekly POS - BGI - SXM - KIN. Later that decade some flights continued beyond POS to either TAB or GEO. I flew on the routes in the 1990s configuration several times and notably did KIN - SXM - ANU - BGI - POS in 2000 as BW combined 2 POS - KIN flights scheduled for that day and JM, on whom I was originally booked, cancelled their at that time daily KIN - BGI - POS service. Nowadays new BW, Caribbean Airlines, fly KIN via one or other of BGI, SXM and ANU and occasionally nonstop from POS.
The MIA runs circa late 1980s included POS - TAB - GND - UVF - ANU - MIA! I flew from POS to UVF on these services in 1988. By the following year TAB did not feature on the run but the others did - I went to MIA that year. BW had other MIA flights with one stop, the stop being either AUA or BGI. Nowadays all services by new BW to MIA run nonstop from POS - there are also daily flights to FLL, also nonstop.
