Chautauqua flew the ERJ-135/145 as Midwest Connect from MKE to BNA, PIT, PHL, EWR, ATL, OMA, STL, MSN, GRB, ATW, MSP, IND, CMH, CLE, DAY. I could see some of these routes coming back.Jump to post
They were a TRUE Deregulation success story. I always thought they would have made the perfect merger partner for Pan Am. Post Pacific Division sale to UA. Sandwiched between PA's JFK and MIA ops were PI's BWI and CLT hubs. Plus DAY and SYR at the time. Florida Shuttle and all that. Think of the gr...Jump to post
I flew with a former Tower Air FA. He said they had to leave CAI once in the middle of the night. Tower was behind on their bills and the plane was going to repossessed. They pushed up pick up like 6hrs and left at like 2am. A Tower Air 747 went off the runway taking off on JFK-MIA on December 20, 1...Jump to post
I'm surprised Swiss doesn't already fly IAD-ZRH. UA & LX both fly ZRH-EWR/SFO.
In October 1996, Swissair flew IAD-BOS-ZRH twice a week on the 743.
What a horrible name for an airline! Sounds like some sketchy Asian charter.Jump to post
Delta, which bought Pan Am's TATL route network in 1991 operated to IST in two different ways. In the 1990s, it flew to IST via FRA (FRA-IST was operated on a 757), and then it went nonstop for a time, then seasonal (summer), on a 767-300ER before being axed in 2015, and has not returned since. TWA...Jump to post
Crazy to think the 737NGs are already up for retirement My first 738 flight was on AA JFK-BOS in February 2001.Jump to post
46 years ago today, July 31, 1973, Delta 723, a DC-9, crashed into a seawall landing at BOS. The 89 people onboard all died. One survivor died in December 1973 in hospital. The NTSB found the failure of the flightcrew to monitor altitude and to recognize passage of the aircraft through the approach ...Jump to post

Here are three videos I took walking around the interior of one of their 747s after it was in storage. This was one that was leased from Air France and retired in 1997. https://www.instagram.com/p/BrBN8xWFcUX/ I am one of your followers on IG, and always envied your pictures and videos..

I think several L-1011s flew FLL-MIA. TWA also flew PHL-JFK on the 1011.Jump to post
How many Latin American markets has AA pulled out of so far? Not knowing anything about aircraft, I am wondering if the 321XLR would allow them to reopen LPB They have struggled with ASU. It was served via GRU on the 763 before 9/11. It came back on the 757 MIA-ASU, but that was dropped a couple ye...Jump to post
DL flew JFK-CAI from about 2008 to 2011 on the 763. TWA also flew JFK-CAI-RUH right up until 9/11 on the 763. What was performance on Delta's flights from New York JFK to Cairo like between 2008 and 2011. DL had flew the route for three years. It was only dropped because of the Arab Spring. It must...Jump to post
I'm not sure what's weirder: the fact a U.S. carrier once flew to Iran, or that the same carrier also flew to Pakistan Some of the places Pan Am flew in 1973 included Abidjan, Ankara, Beirut, Belem, Bergen, Caracas, Cotonou, Damascus, Dar Es Salaam, Douala, Jakarta, Karachi, Kinshasa, Libreville, M...Jump to post

Looks like MIA/FLL is taking a bigger schedule hit than usual this Sep/Oct. I know the MAX is part of the equation but I can't remember AA reducing the schedules down to just one flight a day on some of these routes. Hopefully this is just temporary. Was surprised by a few of these as well but it’s...Jump to post

From Airways Magazine: At the beginning of the 1970s, AS began charter services to Siberia in the Soviet Union. This was the result of three years of secret negotiations between the airline and the Soviet authorities. The US Department of State reluctantly chose not to block the plan for fear of a ...Jump to post
ATL-SLC is interesting, usually much larger planes are on that, even the 767-300 had daily flights in the past. Those flights were operated by the domestic 763. One of the flights was ATL-SLC-HNL. I think SLC-HNL is a 752 now. Correct me if I'm wrong. I was referring to flights circa 2012/2013. Yes...Jump to post

I find it interesting to learn what movies where shown on flights that crashed. Here's a list of flights I know. Anyone have any to add? United on 9/11 (UA93 & UA/175) = A Knight's Tale American on 9/11 (AA11 & AA77) = Dr. Doolittle II TWA 800 = The Birdcage Pan Am 103 = Crocodile Dundee IIJump to post

TWA and 747SP never made sense, if they were flying to Japan, Asia or Australia then yes but TWA never did fly the Pacific with 747's. Surprising they didn't switch to full size 747-200B so they could fly nonstop both ways o Israel which was a huge TWA route. TWA bought the 747SP with aspirations o...Jump to post
UAUA wrote:Then why did they allow AA to buy TW?
And after a few years, all these merges took place.
Every single TWA FA was furloughed by 2003. By then, pre merger American FAs were based in STL. The TWA FAs were recalled several years later but ended up going to junior bases like DC & LGA.
Trans States was never owned by TWA. They changed their name from Resorts Air to Trans States in 1989.
American Connection was the name used for the former Trans World Express operation. In 2001, American Eagle was only regionals owned by AMR (American Eagle Airlines & Executive Airlines). American Connection flights were operated Chautauqua Airlines, Corporate Airlines, and Trans States Airlines...Jump to post
