My dad has been a frequent traveler since 1969 and has flown on a lot of planes and airlines that I can never fly on, because they no longer exist. For example my dad flew on a few TWA CV
-880s back in the day. Well he and I both share the fact that we have flown with TWA, but I can't claim that I ever flew on an 880. I could travel the world over and never get the chance to fly on an 880, because there are no flying examples left.
What are some airlines or planes that your parents have flown on, but you will never will be able to?
My dad has flown on People's Express, United Arab Airlines, Pan Am, Allegeny, Hughes Air West, Braniff, BEA, BAOC, Texas International, and Piedmont. None of those airlines exist anymore and I'll never have the pleasure of flying them. Dad and I share a list of defunct airlines that we both have flown on.
Other than the CV
-880 there are not any planes that dad has flown on that I could never fly on. Dad flew on a Frontier CV580 once. I have never flown on a 580, but there some still around so I still may the the opertunity one day. I doubt I ever get a chance to fly on a 747-100, but you never know...
I am happy that I am old enough that I already have planes like the 707, DC-8 and L1011 under my belt. I would like to fly on the A380 or A340 so I can have something on my list that my dad doesn't.
