No, NA and EA didnt serve GSW in 1960 if ever.


The clue is EA is pretty big there with multiple flights including an Electra. Does look too tropical like Florida. It could be ORL perhaps.

Higher fuel, higher wages and fewer pilots are making 50 seaters obsolete. And of course SCOPE limits. If an airline is limited on regional jets it can operate, then having 50 seaters and less 76 seaters is not a good revenue strategy. Remember in 1992-93 when Comair launched the CRJ-200, oil was $2...
