727 Out Of SFO

Thu Jul 18, 2002 7:20 am

What airlines operate 727s out of SFO besides Delta and Allegro?
I don't think Northwest sends those here.

Neither do I. Because now Northwest operates its last few 727's only out of DTW on routes to destinations flown direct within three hours. I haven't been in SFO for six years but I do believe Northwest no longer flies 727's there, they used to do so 10 years ago probably from MSP.
Delta is the only other US major carrier still operating the 727 on US domestic routes, I don't think they are assigned on the SFO-ATL flight but probably on the SFO-DFW, SFO-LAX and SFO-SLC routing. I'm not even sure if 727's are still flown on all three of those routes I mentioned. A year ago, my parents flew on a Delta 727 from SFO to SLC. DeltaSFO must know if there are still Delta 727's in SFO and on which routes.
United used to operate a lot of them on most US domestic routes to and from SFO. SFO is one of United's major hubs. Ten years ago, I was having breakfast in the Marriot Hotel at SFO just on the bay area, I could see all aircrafts landing on RWY 28L and 28R and most of those were United 727's still in old colours. I remember seeing also an Alaska 727. I'm talking about 1992.

So to answer your question, I don't think that any passenger airline besides Delta still operates the Boeing 727 out of SFO. I'm not talking about Fed Ex and UPS because those are cargo carriers which are likely to fly the 727 for years to come. Next year the 727 will be history in passenger hauling among major carriers.

Allegro no longer flies to SFO....The SunTrips flights moved to Oakland and starting a few weeks ago, North American Airlines replaced SunTrips on those flights. As for NW 727, they do show up at SFO occasionally on sports charters.

As far as I know, there are no more DL 727 operations at SFO.
It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.

I haven't seen any 727s in pasenger service at SFO this year. I've seen Fed Ex operate 727s, but I only watch in the afternoons. I haven't seen a Delta 727 for along time, and UA junked theirs a while ago.

I remember years ago when DL 727-200's flew the SFO-CVG route. Gawd, those planes when they revved the engines up to full power at the end of Runway 1R were L-O-U-D.  Wow!

Because of the tight noise abatement rules at SFO they're pretty much gone now.  Sad
