I'm pretty sure that Eastern L1011 Omaha served what I saw timetable or OAG in the past. I have a good memory. It may be a short time Eastern may found seats filled wasn't profit so they switch 72S. That's why.

I moved to Omaha in 1975, and I saw the Tristar at Eppley in either 1976 and/or 1977. My aunt flew one ATL-STL-OMA and I saw it one other time. It had that largish yellow decal on the side that was Eastern's way of commemorating the US Bicentennial.

I've always been amazed at wide bodied flights that are under an hour. Probably doesn't even get above 20,000 feet.
I've flown twice on a US A 318 from PHL to BWI and we barely got above 10,000 feet before it was time to make our descent. How high could an L1011 get on such a short flight?

EA 952/953 flew the DTW/MIA route for years with the L-1011 before switching over to an A300

As of the fall of 1973 Eastern offered L-1011 service on these city pairs

JFK-ATL
JFK-TPA
JFK-MEX
JFK-SJU
JFK-MIA
JFK-FLL
CLE-MIA
DTW-MIA
ORD-MIA
ATL-MCO

The ATL-PacNW service was initially a milk run, ATL-STL-OMA-SEA-PDX, and I know that for a while an L-1011 did an all-stop, along with 727s. As time went on, the various intermediary stops went away, and with the 757s, it was just ATL-SEA.

I do recall seeing an EA L-1011 at STL in the 70's a couple of times. I'm guessing it was part of the SEA/PDX route but don't know for sure.

It was for sure. ATL-STL-SEA-PDX and return, and would park on the north side of Concourse A at STL (although not sure of the actual gate number, they are UA gates now). SEA-STL leg was a red-eye..

OMA was part of that milk run in the early 70s as well, here check this out:

http://www.departedflights.com/EA090672.html

By 1981 OMA was no longer part of the run, STL only, but there were also ATL-SEA non-stops on AB3 & L10 aircraft, this was also the year we saw EA try their hands at west coast flying with SEA-SLC with proposed continuation SLC-ABQ.

When EA finally came to Denver in the early 80s after deregulation, I remember at least one of their Atl-Den-Atl frequencies was operated with an L1011 because I had gone to the airport to meet my grandmother's flight and that's what she came in on. I also seem to recall that EA operated the A300 into Denver at some point because I can remember seeing it come in during my various visits to the airport as a teenager and having no idea what it was.
Yes, I'd like to see airbus go under so Boeing can have their customers!

OMA-SEA-OMA on Eastertn existed for awhile too. I cant remember the time frame.I cant remember if it was on a widebody or not.


It is really interesting about the capacity that OMA once had.There are a few active threads that touch upon this subject .In some ways i the capacity till there and in other ways it probably lacking. After all OMA is even much larger now than it was back in the 70s.There are a few discussions going on about this subject in other threads.

OMA also had ORD-OMA-ORD on a UA DC-10 for quite awhile

Kind of a sidenote; I notice that both maps have ST. LOUIS in bold type, along with ATL,NYC area,ORD,MIA,WAS area and CLT. Were STL and CLT considered hubs/focus cities?? I know they had a somewhat large operation in CLT before PI set up shop there.

Yes, that's right. Also UA flew DEN-OMA-DEN DC-10 later changed to 767-200.

EA flew to LIM via MIA back in the 80s. Remember those flights, it was so awesome to debark in LIM with the mobile stairs (LIM didn't have jetways until the 2000s). I was just a kid and seeing the turbine so close to you leaves you with a lifelong impression. Miss the L1011-1s
