Re: American Airlines Adds 7 New Summertime Routes to Montana and Alaska

IIRC AA did ORD-ANC at some point or another. Between 2002-2005, AA operated up to 3 flights a day to Anchorage. I believe AA kept the DFW-STL route alive until the end of the 2003 season. When the STL-ANC route was nixed, the additional flight shifted to ORD, leaving 2x ORD-ANC, and 1x DFW-ANC dai...

Re: United Airlines Paper Tickets & Boarding Passes (1990s)

Since my last post, I discovered one additional bit of interest. It appears that at some point Rand McNally acquired a group called DocuSystems. DocuSystems' various lines of business in the 1980's were described in this write-up: Rand McNally's DocuSystems unit specialized in supplying airline and ...

Re: United Airlines Paper Tickets & Boarding Passes (1990s)

I apologize in my delay getting back to this thread. I have been using what free time I have had to research United's historical timeline, press releases, annual reports, Google's patent search engine, and using the Internet Archive to locate information on this subject. While I have made some progr...

Re: City of Denver threatens to pull Ferrovial-led contract to redevelop DEN terminal

I live now on what was Runway 35L. I would love to see an overlay map of Stapleton with the airport versus Stapleton of today. It would be so interesting to see what now resides on where the concourses were, etc. Of course only the Control Tower remains, now the Punch Bowl Social Club. A great tool...

Re: United Airlines Paper Tickets & Boarding Passes (1990s)

I was able to speak with a former United Airlines CSR who stated that the magnetic ticket readers were already installed at their station in 1999. I had originally thought that these readers were confined to hubs; but, apparently they were installed at numerous stations across the system. The magnet...

Re: United Airlines Paper Tickets & Boarding Passes (1990s)

My other mystery was what differentiated blue boarding pass stock from gold? I wonder if anyone still has any... Howdy, I’ll work on trying to get a little more detail and answer some of your questions here soon. However, I wanted to quickly answer this question for you. The blue boarding passes we...

Does United still sell paper tickets through the mail?


I am honestly not certain if they still do. I found this article about United's 'goal' to be 100% E-Ticket by 2004.

Re: United Airlines Paper Tickets & Boarding Passes (1990s)

That sounds interesting. If you can, can you send a link to the eBay listing for the poster? I'll attach some photos and links to what I have been able to find in my search thus far. Again, if anyone has any old United Airlines tickets, itineraries, and/or boarding passes (from the late 1980's-mid/...

United Airlines Paper Tickets & Boarding Passes (1990s)

I am wondering if anyone has any old United Airlines tickets, boarding passes, or itinerary documents from the late 1980's through the late 1990's. I grew up flying United frequently during this period; however, it wasn't until 2002 that I began keeping all of my boarding passes. If I recall correct...

Re: United Denver hub 1990s?

Sorry brother, read what was written again. I never said United wasn't at E Concourse. Like there is reading comprehension problems in this age. My point was and is they were never at C Concourse, especially not C 2. Mexicana used it for their flights, we did some of their maintenance. Never ever s...

Re: AA and FAI

At one point before current day codesharing, American Airlines did serve FAI thru an interchange with Alaska Airlines. Alaska and American would share metal on the routes and the local crews would fly the trips. Both Alaska and American 727-200's would be operated by AS crews from FAI-ANC-SEA and an...
