2. This airline was the world’s largest operator of Convair 990s
I'll say American, who had 20 of them. Spantax was the largest operator for the latter part of their service, but they didn't have 20 overall.

6. What was the first local service airline in the U.S. to operate turboprops?
I'll say West Coast, with the Fairchild F-27 in 1958. Fairchild actually beat the Fokker F-27, from which it was derived, into service.

18. Can you name an airline named after its founder that also operated 747s?
Well it certainly wasn't Richard Branson's airline, was it ...
