Any chance for a range bump?
TPA operation was downsized dramatically after the merger with Republic. Prior to that NW really competed with DL & EA for traffic from the midwest to TPA and also flew TPA-LAX-NRT IIRC at one point. DCA was short-lived after EA went under and NW acquired a number of DCA slots. BOS lasted longe...Jump to post
You might find what you're looking for here. I see a few complete TWA timetables from the time frame you mention:
Based purely on the evidence so far, not a lot. Hard to see that the US did anything wrong. Is there any evidence that evasive manoeuvring was required. Unless the USAF jet caused TCAS to go off in the A300. Which is most likely the case, and would explain the sudden manoeuvring the Mahan Air A300 ...Jump to post

Very poorly written article. But question: is this new T1 intended to have FIS, or at least the physical capability to add such? I'm about 95% sure it won't have FIS..... No FIS initially, but may be included in a future expansion. "The full concept for the terminal expansion remains under dev...Jump to post

Not trying to argue the precedent, but it just doesn't seem likely that any of the major airlines are going to be running international service to GRR and the LCCs are seasonal, at best.
