This is cool to see. In the summer of 1973, I flew a DL 747 from LHR to IAD under the Pan Am interchange. The aircraft continued on to ATL, but everyone had to disembark and go through customs at IAD, which called into question the advantage of having an interchange service. I remember being annoyed because DL was too cheap to equip its aircraft with inflight entertainment systems for the seven-hour flight!
