Re: Craziest Airline Routes from the Past?

The Fiesta Route by Qantas. The route was SYD-NAN-PPT-ACA-MEX-NAS-BDA-LHR flown once or twice a week with B707 aircraft. It started in the 1960s and finished in the 1970s Really, really crazy but very interesting! Wow that's wild. Was the purpose of the route to serve people travelling between Lond...
