My real answer would be "any of them", but if I had to narrow it down I think I would pick an early 707 or DC-8 with the original turbojets as opposed to the turbofans that were used later. Runners up would be the Concorde, Comet (If, as someone else mentioned, I could be guaranteed a saf...Jump to post
A few miles further north on I-25, Cheyenne is also currently without commercial service.Jump to post
Fort Collins/Loveland suffers from proximity to Denver but the airport serves a growing, affluent, population and large universities (CSU and UNC) And could support some commercial flights again.Jump to post
Leicester UK has no airport. Population over 500K. EMA is less than 20 miles away, and most of that is motorway. I know EMA's closer to Notts and Derby than it is to Leicester, but that's not too bad of a distance. It's as close or closer than many airports are to the cities they allegedly do serve...Jump to post

What site did you use to find the details of the London - Amsterdam flights (BA423 and BA430)?
That site mentioned has no European airports as far as I can see ? I have a lot of flights I am still missing but maybe the nice ones are some you guys can help me with ?

If anyone wants to fly 5th freedom between Denver and Manchester (Turkish connecting into United’s network here in Denver would work nicely), I would be delighted. No U.S. or British carrier shows interest in the route. Not least because without a direct option, I And many others just fly to Heathro...Jump to post

A fun side item - the straight-line path from LAX to SEA goes directly over Reno, NV.
Do you realize that Reno is more western than Los Angeles?
How is the purchasing power of Americans “limited”. Average incomes here are significantly higher than most of the world. Certainly considerably more than the UK.Jump to post
How did Patrickz80 completely miss that joke?
mine was on a BA320-100 BRU-LHR. was going for a job interview and the company booked it for me in C back in 1996. was 21 at the time, most people get their flirt flight much earlier these days! I was thinking the same. My daughter is only 6 but has flown many times including numerous trans-Atlanti...Jump to post
Dan Air 727.
School trip to Greece in 1986.
Vast, vast majority of my flights have been non-stop. Even single connections are few and far between.
Only made two stops a couple of times - and one of those trips only involved a second connecting airport due to a bus trip.
Not quite as close as some of those mentioned above, but: Mayaa-Maya (Brazzaville) is about 2 miles from the river border between the two Congos. The end of the runway at N'Djamena International is less than half a mile from the river border between Chad and Cameroon. Foz do Iguacu airport (Brazil) ...Jump to post
Flew Frontier in April. DEN-SNA round trip. Even including the extra cost of "the works" package, the flights were considerably cheaper than those offered by United. The works package gave us carry on bags, checked luggage, and seats at the front of the plane with extra legroom. The only d...Jump to post
Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) serves a number of metropolitan boroughs including the City of Leeds and the City of Bradford. Leeds and Bradford are both in the same metro area (conurbation) though.

Intriguing post, and I hope you find the reg numbers, mikedelta720. Love to know how to access ACARS to find the reg number for some of my own NW 742/744 flights, including my first one, NW45 LGW-MSP on 12 February 1989. Does ACARS go that far back? FAA has all that information for at least domesti...Jump to post

Very recently back from a DEN-LHR return. Miserable conditions in Economy. Ancient 744's. Horribly uncomfortable seats and the seat pitch was the worst I've ever experienced. And check in at Denver was incredibly slow. I honestly thought they were on a 1970's style work to rule in support of their s...Jump to post
Two potential star alliance destinations stand out:
Lisbon - would love easier connections to Iberia
Istanbul - could latch onto all those Turkish routes to the ME

First and only airport ever to serve the UK's 5th largest city and 9th largest metro area. That's actually not true, there's Doncaster-Sheffield airport.

Sheffield City. Opened in '97. Closed less than a decade later. First and only airport ever to serve the UK's 5th largest city and 9th largest metro area.
