Greater Southwest International just south of DFW. Piece of N-S runway and taxiway still there just off SH183 service road.

Re: Braniff History Question - 747 Schedule April 1969

BN did lease an AA 747 in 1978 to start DFW - LHR service. The book "Braniff Airways Flying Colors" shows a pic of the plane in AA silver with a big BI in black on the tail and titles in black near the front, plus an orange stripe over the AA tricolor.

Re: Braniff History Question - 747 Schedule April 1969

IIRC BN didn't have a 747 in 1969 (AA didn't start 747 service until March 1970). The Hawaii service was likely started w-707's.

If you don't already have it, get "A Splash of Colors" - a book about BN's history.

Re: Alaska to Keep DAL

"We're keeping both for sure" -------for the time being. Suspect AS will try to eventually consolidate at DAL, depending on other factors.

Re: Only one state for airline named...

For a short while we had "Ft Worth Airlines" operating out of FTW to HOU back in the '80s. Don't think it lasted long.

Re: jetBlue in Dallas

Just don't see B6 getting gate space at DAL. Not with the AS possibility especially, plus the current legal case.
