PE was flying EWR-OAK but only because SFO didn't have any gates available for PE to use. Unless of course you had an international flight, in which case you could use the International Terminal and get SFO access.
Interesting bit of trivia. I didn't realize gate space was so tight at SFO
at the time. Although OAK
had international facilities that could handle a 747 at the time as well. PE
never used jetbridges, though, even at LAX
they would park the 747 away from the terminal at T-2 (I believe it was), and you'd walk up the stairs to the plane.

Actually, the route operated to the Denver new airport a few times before flight #34 got shifted to IAH for another frequency there.
I remember quite clearly (I was there!), the final scheduled flight from the old Stapleton was CO flight 34 to LGW. The airport was closed that night after that flight departed. Then the next day the flight operated back to DEN and landing into the new airport.
Interesting, I didn't realize it had ever flown into the new DEN
. I used to take the flight all the time, and a few days a week it would originate at LAX
with the same plane.

I don't understand why this is an "odd" routing, as per the threads topic. Hub flight back to hub airport doesn't seem that odd to me.
In my mind it's always fallen into the "odd" category because at LGW
you could pick up Transavia's scheduled service to AMS
, that would operate as CO34/35. CO
called it a codeshare, even though it acted like an interline.
