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.

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.

Correct! I noticed per the schedule that this LTU flight offered a "W" class. Did LTU offer a premium product back then?

LTU LT 412 Miami (MIA) 245p-400p Acapulco (ACA) 767-300 Mon only

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.

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.

Your memory serves you well, JL. Ozark it is via the routing you've provided. Here's the schedule:

Ozark Airlines OZ 617 Chicago (ORD) 700a-800a S St. Louis (STL) 900a-1100a B San Antonio (SAT) 1118a-1208p Brownsville (BRN) DC-9-30 Daily
