10. (1987) You’ve got business in Dallas, Texas and because you successfully negotiated a multi-million dollar contract for the company last month, the boss has opted to reward you with – amongst other things – a First Class ticket from London to Dallas and back. 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.

This is an excellent answer. I agree! I think it is nearly correct. I do know for a fact that they did DFW-LGW for 2-3 years in the late 1980's.

Since the answer has not been announced, I propose a wrong answer and a corrected answer.

Wrong answer:
British Caledonian in conjunction with Sabena. That was an odd combination but they did it on another flight to the US.

Corrected answer:
I believe it was AKL-PPT-DFW-LGW, later changed to HNL instead of PPT but not in 1987.
