He/she means what about the return schedule? If it seems that it's a flight arriving at AMS on Thurs at 7am, stay for a few hrs and turn around, it would be GA equipment. In contrast, if the Indonesia-bound flight leaves AMS on Tues, and arrives at Bali on say Wednesday morning, then it is most lik...Jump to post
What are the timings and days of week that the flight operated? That will probably give you a hint. But unless my memory serves me wrong, it was a GA flight. Departed Denpasar Bali 5:15pm on Wednesday, arrived (3 stops later) in Amsterdam at 7:15am on Thursday. :roll: :roll: Obviously you didn't ge...Jump to post

Looking for some help from the experts on a.net...... I am looking at an old OAG from the late 1980s. There is a flight that operates: Denpasar Bali-Medan-Abu Dhabi-Vienna-Amstedam with a Boeing 747 aircraft. It is listed as both KLM flight 804 and Garuda flight 804. I am trying to figure our which ...Jump to post
Some of the comments on this thread are the reason so many respected users of yesteryear no longer participate. It's enough to make me stop reading. You don't like an airline, don't fly it. No one else on here cares what airline you prefer and/or why. That's not what this discussion (or so many othe...Jump to post
I was recently looking at an OAG from 1989 and I noticed a flight supposedly operated by Scandinavian Airlines System between Rio de Janeiro and Montevideo with 727 equipment. The flight was SK 955 Copenhagen-Rio on a SAS DC-10 and then onto Montevideo with a 727 and SK 956 operating the reverse. I ...Jump to post
For anyone interested, here is the Hawaiian Air timetable from April 1987:
You'll notice that the L-1011 flights are designated with a triangle and the DC-8 flights are designated by a snowflake.
This schedule is from 1988 and says that it is operated in co-operation with QF except the Tokyo-Osaka portion which leads me to believe that QF was the operating carrier.
Looking at an old schedule from 1989. There is a twice-weekly nonstop 747 flight between Cairns and Tokyo Narita.
It is listed as both a Japan Air Lines flight (JL 069) and a Qantas flight (QF 69).
Can anyone tell me which carrier would have actually operated that flight?
Thanks in advance.
Looking at a 1989 OAG and seeing that Qantas and Air Zimbabwe are both showing a similar schedule between Sydney and Harare.... Same equipment, same days, same exact schedule and all flights via Perth. I am assuming that it is Qantas service since I don't believe Air Zimbabwe ever operated 747s. Can...Jump to post
Looking at an OAG from 1989..... Both Qantas and Aerolineas Argentinas are showing an identical schedule from Buenos Aires and Sydney....

I once read a story that back in the 1970s, Allegheny Airlines surveyed their passengers.

QX had DC-9's? I thought so...but (1) I have not seen any pics, and (2) many have said they never existed. But I thought at one time QX flew the DC-9 to SMF from SEA.

WN has shown time and time again that they have modest interest in expanding in CLE at best.

Looks like nothing new for CMH, though CMH-OAK remains on the map, so I'm guessing it was just a temporary victim of the Winter pulldown like STL was.

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.Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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.

I wonder how many total flights WN has had since inception? I suspect they have more than any other airline as well.

AA also served SYD and AKL IIRC in the early 90s with M11s or DC10s via HNL. He must be thinking of the Qantas flights that began appearing in AA's timetable in 1994.

RDU never had a dominate carrier after AA hub lost. What about the second incarnation of Midway Airlines? Did their hub operation not make them the dominant carrier for at least a few years?
