Re: UA Expands California->Florida (LAX-TPA/RSW, SFO-RSW)

The early 1990s United hub at MCO is one of my favorite topics of discussion on A-net, If I recall correctly they also had the McDonalds Happy Meal promotion around the same time period.[/quote]

I still have a couple of the small United/McD hangers .. with a little 747 and Ronald McDonald .. cute!

Regal Imperial service wasn't just on flights to Asia. Routes that NW deemed "important" carried that as well. I'm looking at a timetable from 1968 and it's featured on flights to Florida as an example. It was another name for their best first class service.
