Re: US carriers flying routes totally outside the USA

As stated above, IIRC the only route that remains is the UA GUM operation. Fun fact: there is a cabotage route within the US operated by a foreign carrier! I don’t recall the specific airports, but I believe they are both in American Samoa? And the carrier is Samoan Airlines? You are very much corr...

Re: What if the US, like Canada, did not have open skies with the UAE, Qatar or Turkey?

I think my shortest widebody flight would have been GVA-ZRH (125 nmi) on a SR 743 back in the 1980s. I think it was late 1986. I don't remember how long it was (I was 9) but it was really short. We were going to ZRH but we had come from JFK. For whatever reason, SR did a "milk run" throug...
