You’d expected to have to make a connection somewhere along the way, but to your great surprise there’s a nonstop flight departing Miami for Acapulco each Monday afternoon. Identify the airline and aircraft type you’ll be flying upon.

58. (1983) You need to travel from Chicago to Brownsville, TX. Jeez – no way this ain’t gonna involve a connection in Dallas or Houston. But NO! Turns out there’s a 2-stop direct flight from Chicago all the way down to Brownsville, and as an added bonus there’s even a breakfast and a snack served enroute. Well alrighty then. Identify the airline, the enroute stops and the aircraft type.
33. Hmmmm.....the frequency of the flight in question was once a week on Mondays. And that leads me to think this service may have originated in Europe. So let's go with LTU operating a B767-300 with the flight originating somewhere in Germany.

58. I do recall that Ozark began serving Brownsville back in the early 1980's. So let's try OZ operating a DC-9-30 with a routing of Chicago O'Hare - St. Louis - San Antonio - Brownsville.
