I don't remember it. Apparently, it was Tarom, Frankfurt-Sibiu

The first I remember was Wardair Canada, Frankfurt-Toronto-Calgary-Edmonton-Frankfurt.

I was so excited... Hamburg to Milan-Linate in a Canadair Jet back in 1995... loved aviation ever since! Great flight with a *rough* landing!

LOT in the summer of 1986.
WAW-KWI via Larnaca or Varna, I can't remember.

Anyways, we had a 6 hour delay because of "technical" problems with the good old Il-62M. I miss those jets.

How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

It was in a Swissair Convair 440 Metropolitan in 1966. Flying GVA-MUC and GVA-MUC. It took time, but at that time it was not a problem.

NW SNA-MSP. I was not into aviation at the time (or too young to care). Though I remember the flight I dont remember the equipment. Does any body know what NWA switched the MD-80s over to the A320s between SNA and MSP?

I was 10 years old. Summer of 1971. Unaccompanied minor.

Old Frontier Airlines - Convair 580

RKS to ABQ with stops in LAR, CYS, DEN, COS, PUB and SAF. Pretty exciting for a 10 year old with all those takeoffs and landings.

I cant really say exactly because I was but a mere 9 months old flying from Detroit, USA to Brisbane, Australia so my grandparents could see me. We either drove to Toronto, where my first flight would have been on some kind of Canadian Pacific aircraft, whatever they used in 1980 to fly to Vancouver, or we flew from Detroit on a Republic DC-9 to Toronto and then changed to CPA. After that it was one of those big orange CPA DC-10s across the Pacific to Oz.

Jan 1988 PBI-EWR Continental, only 6 months old! We took Amtrak down b/c I had an ear infection. That was hell! The toilet pipes froze, and I had a stomach virus! EWWW!

I still have a picture of me at EWR in May 1990 at Terminal B where a DL 757 was parked to take us to Atlanta. In B-2 an Eastern 757 was at the gate. I was staring out the window.
