Were You Ever On An Aircrafts First Revenue Flight

Tue Jan 01, 2008 6:43 pm

Just wondering if anyone here was on an aircrafts first revenue flight, for me I only know of one, and that was N228WN on Southwest's first flight ever out of Denver.

I'm not 100% sure it was its first revenue flight, however I know it was its first revenue day.

Yes - on a Dash 8-300 operated by SA Express, on 19 July 1994; for some reason, I've got ZS-NMA listed as the registration in my database, but at the moment, I think it was something else...

The flight was JNB-BFN-UTN.
Smile - it confuses people!

I was on the first revenue flight of the following QF 747-400 in August 1990.

They oprated the delivery flight of several 744s as an extra-section revenue flight nonstop YVR-SYD and sold about half the capacity at special fares. I was able to arrange a nonrev ticket on the first of those YVR-SYD flights.

I have a printed certificate signed by the captain and purser which was distributed to passengers during the flight confirming that they had travelled on the very first nonstop flight between Canada and Australia.
