Well, at one point, there were four cities in Nevada that had scheduled jet service operated by the same airline: Las Vegas and Reno, of course, and also Elko (EKO) and Ely (ELY). The airline was United operating the Boeing 737-200 into both Elko and Ely. So I'll guess UA had dropped their Ely service by this time but was still serving Elko in addition to LAS and RNO.
A good guess but no - United had stopped jet service to EKO and ELY by 1987. So - we're looking for a different airline and the correct combination of three cities, and of course we already know LAS and RNO are two of them. Hmm... EKO or ELY?
