I have a note that says ABQ-SLC started June 1, 1981. Maybe the others did, too. That summer schedule for Eastern was quite radical.

I have the June 1st schedule too, and same showed routes but no flights.

I bought a Eastern may 1 1981 Timetable, the route map showed flights to Sea, Abq, Den, and Stl, but in the Schedule it showed 3 flights to Den and 1 to Atl. A few other schedules for that year were exactly the same, different route map than Schedule. Can anyone help with than? Many thanks
