All Your Airline History Flight Log

Sat Sep 24, 2005 2:38 pm

Just curious to see A.netters flight logs which are now history. We will categorize your flights as follows exemplifying my own sample flight logs: data include name of airline, type of aircraft, routing, year or decade of service and
(optional) comments about the flight, any memorable experiences. If you have too many of them, just post the "exotic" or memorable ones here and post the others in our next thread (hopefully):

Category A: Airlines not flying anymore

Pan Am PA 747-100 MNL-SGN-MNL 1975. My first flight ever, 3 weeks before
the fall of SGN. On the way back, we boarded the aircraft at the
busiest hour at Tan Son Nhut Airport around 10:30 AM. There were
no air bridge connectors, buses transported passengers from the
terminal to the aircrafts, but passed through all the aircrafts parked
in SGN: SQ 737-100 from SIN, TG DC-8-33 from BKK, VN 707-320C
used for SGN-HKG-TPE-ITM-HND (the livery of this aircraft is
the yellow and 3 red lines signifying the South Vietnamese flag but
the lines form a letter "V" at the end with the fuselage marking as
"Hang Khong Vietnam"), VN DC6 (used for domestic), CX 707-320C
from HKG, (2) Dc-8-63F of Flying Tigers used on relief flights
to Phnom Penh, AF 747-100 from ORY that had multi-stops
including BKK on its way to MNL and then the PA 747-100 sitting
close to the runway.

Category B: Airline is still flying but the route is not anymore operating

Royal Air Maroc AT 747-400 winter 2000 JFK-YUL-JFK very cheap flight
around $200 RT. Both flights are almost empty, on the JFK-YUL
flight, the FA served a very small can of Coke (canned in Casablanca)
with no ice, no plastic cup and she went to kneel on the empty
seat in front of me when she handed me the Coke! On the YUL-JFK
segment, the FAs gave the same small can of Coke but this time with
plastic cup and ice PLUS a gourmet carrot cake which was very
delicious! I sent a letter to the AT office in CMN about the "no food"
on the JFK-YUL segment and I got a positive response but few
months later, the JFK-YUL segment was axed!!

Category C: Airline is still operating but the aircraft type had been made
history in that particular airline fleet

Philippine Airlines PR BAC 111-500 1984 Legazpi-MNL, aircraft semicircled
Mayon Volcano shortly after take-off from Legazpi, very short flight
but the FAs offered newspapers, a sandwich, a cake and a soda

For Catagory C:

GRR-DTW
NW 727-200
January 1997

My first flight; I remember taxiing out to the runway and seeing a NW 747 parked out there (or maybe I was seeing things?), and after takeoff we rose above the clouds and I was ecstatic, looking at the fluffiness, and thinking how cool it would be to fly for a living. Oh and before the flight, we got a tour of the cockpit. I have a photo of my sister and I with the flight crew (of 3, how old school!) and I got a 727 collector's card (I wish they still did that!), but I lost it over the years. Well anyways, it was a very good flight, as was my next one (on a DC-10, my first widebody!), and from then on I loved flying, although I had to endure a 6-year hiatus because we never went anywhere during that time.
