I flew PE quite a lot in early and mid-1980's. The experience was different from other airlines of the era in that you paid for everything from snacks to checked baggage. You could even pay for your ticket onboard. They flew 737-100/200 and 727-200s. The planes were generally fairly comfortable, certainly not the crippling sardine-can coach seating of typical economy today. PE was based at Newark Airport and flew frequent service to airports most other carriers shunned. For example, there were 5-6 daily 727/737 flights between EWR and BTV and a similar number between EWR and PWM, BUF, ORF, etc. In many respects, PE was 25 years ahead of its time because what other carriers such as AA and NW used to mock, they're now doing themselves and touting it as being fiscally responsible. I miss PE, but am comforted they became part of a 1st class airline, Continental.
I know they also flew 747 into LAX. I used to realy like that giant drawing of the out line of people faces.
