in the conversation about South American D8S operators into MIA upthread, it was revealed that both VIASA and VARIG had retired their Stretch 8 fleets by 1987, and I have to think that the smaller carriers that represent the answer to that question wouldn't have had a presence at MCO in addition to their MIA operation

then I thought about Aeronaves de Mexico, but I'm pretty sure they only flew the -51 and -62 series

I was composing this reply yesterday and apparently lost connectivity from my phone during upload ... I was going to guess that we were looking at Air Canada service from Toronto, but given the hint that wasn't yet posted, that's obviously incorrect

so it's wild guess time ... Icelandair, from Reykjavik

It’s a long story… Imagine then your surprise and delight upon discovering an airline that flies nonstop between Washington Dulles and Montego Bay twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays. The southbound flight on Thursday is operated in an all economy configuration while the northbound flight on Sunday uses a different aircraft type and offers both First Class and Coach. Identify the airline and the respective aircraft it employs on each flight.
HINT: One aircraft was a 727-100, the other a 737-200.
I believe United had some all-coach 737s ... I think they're too obvious a candidate, but I'll stick with this guess for now
