I know - I'd have loved to stay longer. The stopover was magic, it was an NZ 747-200, en route from PPT to AKL, we were very late leaving PPT so we got to RAR in the early morning, just after sunrise. The 747 was WAY too big for the apron, it towered over everything, we got to disembark and sit on the grass outside the terminal, and watch the Air Rarotonga EMB's departing for Aitutaki etc. It was pretty special.

We flew in the opposite direction from AKL to RAR, from RAR to PPT and from PPT to LAX but it was onboard an ANZ 763ER all the way.

I flew on that route as well but it was onboard their flagship, the Saab 340.

Back in 1981 I took a flight from Madrid to New York that stopped at the Açores Islands to refuel. We didn't leave the plane and I remember it was terribly hot. I recall as well I was 16 at the time...  spin

MIA in 1978 on an Air Jamaica replacement flight since their pilots went on strike, we had to take a chartered Air Florida DC-9 and transfer to a Texas International DC-9. I had been looking to return home on another Air Jam DC-8. The walk from to the customs area was very long as was the walk from there to the departure gate.
