SFO: eastward to Idlewild in 1954, westward in 1955. In Dec 1955 TWA's 1049G was scheduled 9-55 westward; in Jan 1958 BOAC's DC-7C was 10-00.
DCA in 1956, Baltimore in 1960, BOS in 1962 and presumably IAD-- the Nov OAG says TWA was to start IAD in Nov. PHL in 1963, ATL presumably in 1964-- it's not in the 12/63. EWR presumably in 1965-- it's not in the 12/64.
NA started SFO-TPA eastward in 1965, but who ever flew that westward? Only one I've found is a weekly PA DC-10, leaving TPA at 2330 Friday in Feb 1981.
PIT started 1967, an 880 both ways-- longest-ever 880 nonstop? UA started CLE Jan 1968, NA started MIA in 1968, then Charlotte in 1984 (at least the 10/84 OAG says it was to start Nov).
MCO in 1990, BDL in 1997, then FLL and RDU sometime 2005-2012.
San Jose: JFK start 1968, and Baltimore believe it or not-- it's not in the 15 Jan 1969, tho. ATL in 1985, EWR in 1987, BOS in 1991, MIA in 1992-93, PIT 1993-94, IAD 1997-98, RDU start 11/00.
Oakland: JFK eastward start 1964, westward 1967. World to/from Newark in 1980, then they did BWI to OAK in 1984, but nobody did it eastward-- until I guess Southwest has? ATL start 2001, IAD 2001-02, BOS 2003-04.
Sacramento: PIT start 1991, ATL 1997, JFK and IAD in 2003-04, EWR 2004, PHL and CLT in 2012-2013, then JetBlue to BOS sometime after that.

I don't believe that SFO-IDL began until 1 Nov 1959 on a 707.
