Route Map Returns With UA/DL Domestic Map

Mon Jul 16, 2007 10:56 am

Uploaded 28 new route maps. Main highlights are probably UNITED and DELTA's domestic route map. As a result, a larger and better resolution was applied.

Other ones includes QANTAS, revised Air New Zealand (reflecting the cancellation of European codeshare routes by TG/SQ), and few 1977s, including Iran Air (747SP nonstop to New York).

Those are really good. Especially the UAL one.

I enjoyed the NZ one too.

Take care,

Jimyvr,

How come your Delta route map shows Delta Connection flying Tucson-McAllen?


Great route maps though!

This is pretty cool. You can really see the evolution of different airlines. How long did it take you to get all this info?

It's in fact LAX-MFE by XJet, just happens to be overlapping through TUS.

Route Map drawing began in 2001. of course the addition of OAG and old timetables helped.

Incredible work, man. Incredible. I can't even draw a straight line and you do this

I love the hand-drawn Continental logo...

It would be really cool if one these showed up in an airline's in flight magazine...

A couple of queries about the QF route map of 1/11/1977 - 31/3/1978 included in this batch:

1) No South African service? I was not aware of break in this service.
2) Had both the Feista Route and SFO-JFK-LHR finished by this date?
3) No PPT service at all?

Thanks

1) only SAA was operating South African service

2) Fiesta and the SFO-JFK-LHR leg of Southern cross route dropped in early 70s

3) No PPT service in 1977/78.

Not to forget DELTA's, but only selected codeshares are shown.
