IAHWorldflyer, as you alluded to, San Juan service evolved over time. Based on the references provided by lx2iah, SJU service went from SJU-MSY/LAX with DC-8 equipment; later MSY and LAX were dropped and MIA/ATL nonstops were added operated with L-1011 aircraft. There are even timetables that show a SJU - MCO service operated by L-1011 equipment.

Don't forget that DL put the 764s in a domestic F config when they got them nearly 20 years ago.
