TW was 1984 sometime, the Feb 15th, 1985 OAG shows the M80 from STL, While in July 1983 it was 727 or 72S services. AA was likely later in the 1980's as the longer 727 routes were the first converted to the MD-80's as they arrived in many carriers fleets for the better fuel savings.

Frontier's MD-81/82 service touched Omaha starting in 1984 and continued until their shutdown in 1986.

I know for BOI, FL on 12/10/83, and I was there. However, I thought (incorrectly)it was supposed to be the 15th....
Not that this has anything to do with OMA.....
