The offer is somewhat bittersweet in that you’ve always wanted to fly in First Class aboard a 747 and since Braniff no longer operates its bright orange 747s on this route, you’re stuck with a DC-10 via the other airline(s) that fly LGW to DFW. Not so fast says the company travel agent. There is one airline that operates a single once weekly 747 between LGW and DFW. First Class is available. Book it, Danno! Identify the airline you’ll be flying, please.

16. (1988) It’s not often that business calls for you to travel from your home office outside Atlanta, Georgia to the far-flung regional office in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. When it did recently, you were pleased to discover a two-stop direct flight from Atlanta that would put you into Sioux Falls early in the afternoon. You quickly book it and make a note to pack a sandwich since no meals will be offered enroute. Name the airline, the two intermediate stops and the aircraft type you’ll be flying.
10. Wild guess time: Air New Zealand operating AKL-HNL-DFW-LGW with a B747-200.

16. A DC-9-30, you say. Well, I was ready to jump in with Ozark....but I then noticed the year. And I'm reasonably sure OZ had been merged with another airline by 1988.

So let's go with TWA operating a D9S with a routing of Atlanta - St. Louis - Sioux City - Sioux Falls.
