Large Aircraft Serving Small Airports

Fri Aug 22, 2003 4:11 am

Which airports do you know which get a large aircraft on a particular route when almost everything else serving the airport is small.
Examples such as a 777 service when everything else seems to be 737's/RJ's or maybe one route attracts a 320 when everything else are turboprop commuters??
Like a fine wine, one gets better with age.

Delta's daily (less during winter) 767-300ERs to Venice and Nice.

American's daily 777-200ER into Montevideo and Raleigh-Durham and daily 767-300ERs into Belo Horizonte and Asuncion.

United's daily 767-300ER into Montevideo.

I remember MLU- Monroe, LA Delta used to fly 727-200's and 737-200's in their. It was amazing to see them flop it down an brake/T. reverse to stop. Had 1 gate for DL others were commuters

On Sept 12 2001, a NW 747-400 from China landed at GRR - diverted due to the airspace chaos.

I was unable to see the a/c there, but I saw it take off.

I wonder if the jetway even reached?

GRR is not small, largest scheduled service is a A320 (or maybe a 319?), 737s (732,734,735), DC-9s, and RJs round out the rest.

Cargolux 744Fs to Luxembourg

Air France 747 to Ajaccio and Bastia, but operating only on certain days (usually around holiday time)

British 767 to Grand Cayman

Varig daily M11 to Porto Alegre (on to Sao Paulo-Paris)

Delta 767 to Lyon (not sure whether still in service)

Air France 744 to Cayenne

all those Air France 330, 340s and some 777s going to remote African airports like Ouagadougou, N'Djamena, Bangui, etc

and my favourite one, although it stopped some years ago: Garuda D10 stopping over on its way from Jakarta to the US West Coast (LAX I think, with another stop in HNL if I am not wrong).

Just love those big birds that drop you off from some faraway hub in the middle of nowhere

I have seen many many charters in BOI. For instance, I have seen...

British Airways 777(I actually think it was diverted)
Northwest 747-400(Carrying firefighters)
Delta L1011(Carrying Idaho soldiers)
World Airways MD-11(Unknown)
Air Force One(President of course)
ATA L1011(Many occasions)
Sun Country DC-10(It carried a sports team, not sure which one)

Starting November 11th, North American Airways will offer weekly flights from BOI-OGG using 757-200s. The 757-200 will then be the largest aircraft serving passenger flights. The largest passenger aircraft serving BOI is the 737-800, but we also get serviced by A319s and A320s by Northwest. The largest Aircraft(Pax and Cargo) serving BOI is an A300 from FedEx. This is for those who want to know more about BOI

I  Love BOI

B6 A320 in BTV. It clashes with the other smaller turbo props and regional jets

FedEX A300/310 in ROC. The ONLY widebody service we have an its only for cargo.

DL used to fly 757-200's into SAV before switching to 737-800's

US used to fly a F100 or DC-9 into ITH. Trust me, the DC-9 was big.

Some of the majors have seasonal services with mainline jets into ski resort areas of Colorado (Gunnison and Eagle County -- believe these are closest commercial airports to Telluride and Steamboat Springs) as well as Jackson, Wyoming. The latter may now be year-around with large jets from some airlines. These are likely among the smallest airports in the U.S. to receive 757/A320 services. When seasonal services with the large jets are not in effect the only flights to these points are turboprops and/or RJs from the nearby hubs of SLC (DL) and DEN (UA).

Airbus A319 at Oakland Pontiac Airport PTK (flies direct to Stuttgart Germany 3X a week for a Daimler Chrysler employee shuttle.)

Contract Air Cargo 727 and USA Jet DC-9 frequent there to an airport that is mostly general and corporate aviation.

Also the occasional sports charters of 727s, 757s and A320s

MAH4546, I disagree about NCE and the Delta 767...
Nice gets many big aircrafts:first some Emirates A330 200 (flight to Dubai via Rome), plus lots of BA and Britannia 767s especially in summer, along with some 747s (the king of Saudi Arabia loves to bring his 747 there  Wink/being sarcastic )
But of course, most of the aircrafts that land at NCE are not bigger than A320s.......

What about Barbados?? I have never seen that airport but seems the BA 777 in the photos seem fairly large for that airport. Another one is Freeport, Bahamas. Years ago, I used to fly there on a Laker 727, when most aircraft were Beech 1900's, Gulfstreams, or ATR's. Also, at my home airport, Southwest used to fly 737's and the rest were commuters.

SAN usually has narrow-body traffic, but gets some Delta 767s (and L1011s when they had them), the BA 777 (which at one time was a 744, and a DC-10 back in the day), American 767s (and DC-10s a few years back), Fedex DC-10/MD-11, and a couple of times the An 124 was there.

I remember watching a news report when i was younger about a Pan Am A310 en route from vienna to new york. The aircraft had engine trouble and had to do an emergency landing at Stornoway,a remote scottish island. The funny thing was because the airport was tiny they had to attach a basket to a crane to take the passengers off!
next flights : LHR-SOF BA, SOF-DOH-KAT QR, KAT-HKG KA, HKG-LHR VS, LHR-ATH-LHR BA, LHR-CDG-LHR AF, LHR-MAD-LHR IB/BA

LOL i was landing into Rockford, IL 3 days ago and saw a UPS DC-8/757/767 slitting on the ramp. Rockford=RFD i think is about 70 miles west of O'hare the only other traffic that airport sees is people like me (PA28 piper warrior) and American Eagle RJ-135/145 so the DC-8/757/767 are abite of a HUGE jump for that little airport.

Also, saw and E-4 (miliary 747) land at TUL (tulsa, Ok) the only other wide bodys that fly in there are the UPS 767 (very rare) FedEx A310 and AA has a flight to DFW on a 757 every morning. Other then that the only other traffic TUL sees is rj's, 737s, and heavy C check stuff for AA since TUL is one of there maitnance hubs.

This is not the best example, since a 320 is not a wide body, but NW flies 320s into Madison. The rest of the traffic is typical RJ fare, but I'm sure that there are sports charters into Madison that might even be a wide body, especially if they ever play Nebraska.
Speaking of which, there are pictures of UA744 in Lincoln for sports charters.
ATW (Appleton) gets sports charters as well, when teams play the Packers.

we have had the following land...

732
733
DC-9
727-200
747(President and United Airliens chartered)
MD-80

Those are the big jets that have landed and taken off at those airports.

at MWA all we get are the J-32's
KMDH gets NO COMMERCIAL SERVICE!

B4real: the jet bridge was not brought up to the plane, sat on tarmac while trying to figure out customs. Pax finally bussed to DTW and plane taxied to FED EX building. However they do bridge the DC-10's that would come in. (A6) is the only gate that can suport it out of the three gates theyown in GRR

Also NW & UA have substituted 752's into GRR before.

LPL: CO does not fly 767's to Kosrae, Pohnpei, TKK, this is down by the 738.

I'd add KLM's MD-11's at BON and CUR, TACA's flights to RTB (used to be a 737, but may well be an Airbus these days), Southwest's 737's at AMA, LBB, AF / KMAF), USA - Texas">MAF, HRL, CRP (all of which mostly get RJ's and/or turboprops from AA Eagle, CO Express, or DL Connection), Delta's 757's to SAV, and AF 744's at SXM.

In Hawaii,

Lanai and Molokai get 1 or 2 daily HA 717s among the many Island Air Dash 8s and Pacific Wings Cessnas.

Kona not only gets UA 767-300s but they usually get a JAL 747 a few times a week--quite impressive surrounded by AQ 737s and HA 717s.

Oh yes, some more spring to mind:

Lufthansa 340 to PDX

LAN Chile to Easter Island/Isla de Pasqua in the middle of the South Pacific

Lufthansa 744 to Chennai/Madras in India

Austrian 340 to Kathmandu as of October; not sure, but I think KTM also gets some big TG jets (used to be M11)

Also, two that no longer exist:

South African 747s on Sal Island, on their way to Europe when they were not allowed to fly over Africa

Aerolineas Argentinas 747 to Rio Gallegos in Patagonia (Southern Argentina) on its way from Buenos Aires across the South Pole to Auckland


Actually, with the advent of really long range planes, we have "lost" a number of interesting small spots with big planes that needed to stop there because of range constraints. I think going back in time you would find many more surprising places being connected to the wide world (just think of those postal services to South America from Europe)

SAA still land 744's at Sal Island (SID) - enroute to SA - New York">JFK and SA - Georgia">ATL (and a couple of times a week on the way back)- still can't make it nonstop from JNB with a full load, owing the the altitude at JNB. Still, they got their money's worth from SID - the SA government paid to have it built in the 70's (I think) when SAA was banned from overflying Africa).

Another good one..

NZ 747 landing at Rarotonga (Cook Islands) en route to and from PPT/SA - Hawaii">HNL. Monster plane, teeny tiny airport - the waiting room is a stretch of grass. Take off is pretty exciting, the captain stands on the brakes, winds it up and lets go - maximum g's !

Barbados - not the best example as the tarmac there is often carpeted with biggies and widebodies - BWIA TriStars and A340, BA 777 and 747-400 (and Concorde right now), AC 767, AA A300, JMC A330, Britannia, Airtours, Thomas Cook - far too many to mention. Back in 2000 when I was last there I drove past the airport and saw no fewer than 4 Britannia 767s side-by-side!

TAB - now there's a good example - the terminal is shorter than the BA 777s and VS 747s that park next to it. Of late it too has had a boom in the number of widebodies coming in. In fact it suffers a penalty in that its terminal is too close to the runway so the widebodies penetrate the ICAO recommended obstacle-free zone around the runway when they are parked. The trouble was, when they built the present terminal in the mid 1980s they probably did not envision so many widebodies coming in - they thought primarily about the domestic services as well as developing regional links (which it now has several of).

My first post!

And, it brings up my 'home' airport... BGI (Barbados) has a large number of large aircraft scheduled and non-scheduled: AA 767s/A300s in addition to 757s, BA 747-400s/777/and Concorde (!), VS 747s, BW A340s, AC 767s. Plus all the 'little' ones too: US 319s, JM 320s, BW 737-800s, AC 319s and many charters like Thomas Cook etc... In fact, the only scheduled non-jet airlines are LIAT and Caribbean Star w/ Dash-8s and American Eagle ATRs.
When I worked at BGI, I remember seeing Martinair MD-11s, Finnair DC-10s, Condor DC-10s, Caledonian L-1011s, Wardair 747s/DC-10s/A300s/A310s, AC 747s/L-1011s, PA 747s/DC-10s/A300s/727s, Scanair DC-10s, Ghana Airways (!) DC-10s (operating for Caribbean Airways), Air Transat L-1011s, AF Concorde.
BGI was and still is a great airport for spotting - I remember jumping over the fence and standing within 100 yds. of the runway watching AC DC-8s take off... Great place for parking at the end of Runway 09 too...
Plus, huge renovation project going on now - may even get jetbridges.

Another smal airport that had big jets is CMI (Champaign, Illinois). Used to have PI 737s and OZ DC-9s... Now just the tiny ones - can't seem to attract many airlines either; just has American Eagle and Northwest Airlink now...

RE: Large Aircraft Serving Small Airports

Iquitos Peru in the middle of the Amazon used to get Faucett DC-8s and later L-1011s. It may be the major center of the Peruvian Amazon, but it isn't a large place. The Miami-Lima flight used to stop in Iquitos 1x/week, I believe. Quite a site. Still remember the flight from Lima over the Andes and then the lushest green carpet.

I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.
