Re: Original Republic airlines question

According to both the February 1, 1982 and June 1, 1982 OAGs, All Republic flights between Pasco and Seattle were on DC-9-30s and all Republic flights between Seattle and Minneapolis were on 727-200s. I would assume the March schedule would have been the same.

Trying to date this ORD terminal map. Help please.

Hello all.... I am trying to find a date for this terminal diagram of O'Hare Airport. I see that Lake Central is listed as one of the carriers, so it must be from 1968 or sooner. Is there anyone who can help further pinpoint the date? Thanks in advance. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4239/3486962927...

American was more affected than most by the MD-11 debacle, having bought the plane specifically to fly Dallas to Tokyo and Dallas to Hong Kong, which even after the PIP (performance improvement programme), the MD-11 never operated. AA had to keep the pair of 747SPs they acquired from TWA as an inte...
