For a breif period in 95/96, Continental's SFO-HNL was flown with 747-200s(perhaps it was an Air Mike route, but some 747s had "Micronesia" titles and some didn't) The way I remember it, after Bethune decided to retire the 747s from mainline service, some were either transferred or reacti...Jump to post

Alright, to sume it up, before the merger CO only flew IAH-LGW, then they inherited from PE flights from EWR to BRU and LGW, and everything else happened afterwards. Thanks to all.Jump to post
While browing in the pictures database, I've seen this very first Continental DC-10 service to ORY... 4552931 ...and this one from the following day. 4453841 They were used to replace former PE 747s operated on the route.

What I find interesting is that Continental began Down Under service with DC-10-10s which might explain the stop in Pago Pago. Pago Pago was then dropped in 1980, which also coincided with the delivery of two DC-10-30s. The -30s were in fact acquired for that purpose as well as increase the payload...Jump to post

The airline will dump 15% more seats into Europe this summer – and do so with widebody aircraft that executives concede are not ideal for the job.

It seems SS is resuming the route today, per F24, with an A332 before upgrading to an A343 next week. Same schedule as last year.

When SA, BA and VS fly direct from LHR to JNB, they leave LHR and just point the nose south to JNB.

Perhaps because it's a domestic flight.
