First Airline flight

Fri Dec 11, 1998 1:09 pm

What was your first airline flight?

Mine was a Provincetown-Boston Airlines (PBA) Cessna 402 flight from MHT>BOS when I was about 9 months old.

Mine was an Eastern DC-3 from LGA to RIC on 3/6/47. I don't remember this flight. I found it in my baby book in my parents' attic.

Mine was on Pan AM from Gatwick to LAX. It was on an old 747. I remember my mother cutting her finger while closing the overhead. I did not sleep the whole flight but when we landed at LAX after 12 hours of flying I crashed out. I was fast asleep. So mother woke me up. Then while deplaning we were almost at the fropnt of our cabin and I turned my head and ouked all of the seat. A gave it a new cover!! Mum never flew with me without dad again. She sends me on my own now.

My first flight was also when I was too young to remember it. It was on a Bristol Freighter on a short hop across the English Channel. Our car was on board as well! I don't remember the airline, it may have been British Air Ferries, but it's long gone now.

My first airline flight was on good old Eastern from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to Philadelphia,with a stop in Allentown.It was on a B727-100.I flew EAL many times and never had a bad flight or bad service.Of course this was before deregulation and all the stringent security measures.

My first flight was from Washington National Airport to Winnepeg. We had to land in Toronto and wait several hours because of harsh weather. I was 6 months old.
