I now recall that Eastern did indeed have an Electra standing by as a dedicated backup aircraft for the Air Shuttle flights so this is very plausible.....

You call the airline and book a First Class seat. Identify the airline and aircraft you’ll be flying upon.

59. (1995) Boy, this has been one helluva rough trip to Reno. First you misplaced your cell phone at the National Automobile Museum and then you lost your socks playing poker against some wily local card sharks posing as affable if somewhat mildly brain damaged tourists from Nashville. Damn! How could this happen?! And now you don’t even have enough to buy plane fare back to Denver on United. Thankfully there’s another airline offering a single daily nonstop flight for considerably less than United’s nonstops. You book yourself a seat and then call your cousin Jimmy to see if he can give you a ride home from DIA. Identify the airline and the aircraft type if you please.
46. This sure sounds like USAir. And since we'll be in first class, of course, let's go with a B727-200.

59. Back in 1995, MarkAir was struggling to survive. Neil Bergt had decided to re-create his air carrier (which had begun life flying intrastate routes in Alaska with B737-200 combi aircraft) as a low fare airline with a Denver hub.

So I think we are talking about MarkAir here with an all-coach configured B737-300.

And BTW, also back in 1995, Consumer Reports magazine had rated MarkAir as being the worst domestic air carrier in terms of service.

How about Continental, operating 747, DC-10, and A300 service between Gatwick and Newark

No, it was not Continental. So far as I know CO acquired its A300s from Eastern and the aircraft were never configured or used for International services aside from Mexico. Additionally, I believe the model Eastern operated - the A300B2 - did not have the legs for Trans-Atlantic operations. Please, guess again!

That's the ticket, JL. Here's the schedule...

US Air US 599 New York (LGA) 830a-1125a B Bermuda (BDA) 727-200 Daily

Correct! At its peak, Markair flew coast to coast with a surprisingly diverse route network. The fleet included 737-300 and 737-400 aircraft.

Markair BF 422 Reno (RNO) 105p-400p Denver (DEN) 737-300 Daily

31. (1983) Yes!!! Your signature Blackened Tri-Tips BBQ Sandwich has earned you an invitation to compete in the American Royal World Series of Barbecue being held this year in Kansas City, MO. Better yet, your travel agent has informed you that there’s an airline that offers a direct two-stop flight from Los Angeles into Kansas City’s Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport, much more convenient than Kansas City International (MCI) which is located 20 miles out of town. Name the airline, enroute stops and aircraft type you’ll be flying upon.

32. (1982) You’re driving to work along I-70 through Kansas City when you notice a billboard. “KC’s only nonstop service to Orlando and Disney World!” it reads. Hmm… It would be nice to take the kids to Disney World this year, along with Sea World, Circus World, Baseball World and – for you and the wife – Liquor World. Maybe you can find that bottle of Chateau Neuf whatever it was out there. So, you quickly call the airline and book four seats – out and back. Identify the airline you’ll be flying upon along with the aircraft type please.

35. (1983) You’re in Rapid City, South Dakota and have just received a call from the home office that your services are required in Little Rock, Arkansas the day after tomorrow. A quick check of the schedules indicates it can be done, albeit via a 3-stop direct flight tomorrow morning. After getting over your shock that there’s actually a direct flight between these two disparate destinations, you call the travel office and arrange to book a seat on that flight. Name the airline, aircraft type and the three enroute stops please.
A N S W E R E D

36. (1995) You commute regularly between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, a market served exclusively by US Airways. Imagine then your surprise and delight to discover a new airline offering five daily flights in each direction. You quickly book a seat on the evening departure out of Pittsburgh. Identify the airline and aircraft type you’ll be flying upon.

37. (1988) Sheesh! You sure do travel out of Nassau a lot! This time you’ll need to find a flight between Nassau and Indianapolis. You envision a painful layover in Miami’s damp and outdated airport (that carpet smells really bad over on the F Concourse) but lookee here! There’s a single one-stop direct flight each day that even offers not one but two snacks enroute! Book it, Danno! And don’t forget to request the lacto-ovo vegetarian option, please. Airline, aircraft and enroute stop, please.

39. (1995) You need to fly from Washington Dulles down to Ft. Lauderdale so you call United to book a flight. What’s this? United doesn’t offer any service on this route? You’ve got to be kidding me! You’re not kidding? Hoo boy… Your next call is to a travel agent who advises you that there’s a single daily flight offered by another airline leaving Dulles each afternoon at 2:10pm. Book it, Danno! Please identify the airline and aircraft you’ll be flying upon.

40. (1982) In 1982, this domestic U.S. airline flew just one type of jet in scheduled service and operated a total of six flights – three in each direction between just one city pair. Can you identify the airline, the city pair and the aircraft type flown?
It was not Sun Country

41. (1983) You’ve got a hectic week of business travel coming up. From your home in Provincetown, MA you’ll first need to travel to Philadelphia. You’ve found a great connection through Boston (of course) that involves two aircraft built by the same manufacturer. One is the shortest model still currently flying while the other is the longest ever built by this manufacturer. Two airlines are involved. You already know the connection is via BOS. Identify both airlines and the respective equipment each flies.

42. (1983) Following a meeting with your client at the airport lounge in Philadelphia, you’ll continue on down to Raleigh, NC. Three airlines offer nonstop flights on this route but you’ll be traveling on the least expensive one – the only one to operate its aircraft in an all-Economy Class configuration while also still serving its cheapskate passengers a luncheon enroute. By now you surely know the drill – airline, aircraft, rank and serial number. Now drop and give me twenty! Or a correct answer!

43. (1983) Right! After a productive two days in Raleigh, it’s time to head west to Kansas City, Mo. You fully expect to have to connect in Chicago on this segment but are pleased to discover that the RDU-MCI market is served by a single almost daily (X6) 2-stop direct flight. Well blow me down! Book it, Danno! Identify the airline, the aircraft and of course the two enroute stops…

44. (1983) From Kansas City, you’re going to fly upon the only MD-80 operating in any direction other than east out of Kansas City. To make this even easier, it’s a one-stop flight direct to California – operating to an airport south of SFO, no less. How much simpler can I make this?!! A bit more, I suppose, but let’s stop here. After all, you guys are supposed to be good at this stuff. I’m assuming you’re all guys, by the way. If there are any members of the fairer sex out there amongst our participants, please contact me. I’ll buy you dinner and a bottle of mid-range wine while we discuss airline schedules and aircraft configurations in the candlelight. Or something else if you like. Oh yeah – the question… Please answer it with the usual qualifications.

45. (1983) With a successful conclusion to your business in Southern California, why not join some friends for a weekend of skiing at Jackson Hole, Wyoming? The deal is sealed upon discovering that there’s a once weekly nonstop from LAX straight to Jackson, Wyoming. Identify the airline and aircraft you’ll be flying upon.

47. (1982) This airline offers the only one-stop no-change-of-plane direct flight between Oklahoma City and Mexico City. Identify the airline, the single enroute stop and the aircraft type flown.

48. (1987) Only one airline operates between North America and London utilizing three different types of wide bodied aircraft on the same route – each built by a different manufacturer. Identify the airline and the city it serves London from with its three different types of widebodies. And what the heck - you might as well identify the aircraft types as well.
Wardair has been correctly identified with 747, DC-10 and A300 flights out of YYZ. This question remains open to other selections if you wish.

49. (1983) Between Honolulu and Los Angeles, there are just two airlines operating all-economy configured aircraft. Can you guess which two airlines they are? And while you’re at it, go ahead and have a try at which aircraft type each airline operates.

50. (1995) Business calls in the form of a marketing seminar down in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. From your home in Mt. Kisco, New York you imagine the best way to get to Baton Rouge will by departing out of either LaGuardia or Newark with a probable connection in Atlanta or New Orleans. Imagine then your surprise and delight to discover a two-stop direct flight departing nearby Westchester County Airport in White Plains each afternoon at 4:00pm. You quickly book a seat. Please identify the airline, aircraft and the two enroute stops.
A N S W E R E D

51. (1982) From your home in Rockford, Illinois, flying to your vacation home in Southern California means either driving to Chicago and flying to LAX from there or utilizing an interline connection through a variety of Midwestern cities. Recently however, Rockford became the beneficiary of a direct flight all the way through to Los Angeles. Okay, so it makes four stops but what the heck – let’s give it a try. Identify the airline, the aircraft and the four enroute stops in order.

52. (1988) Normally you prefer to fly out of Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport, but since business this afternoon has you only two miles from Houston’s Intercontinental Airport, it makes sense to catch a flight from there to Albuquerque. As luck would have it, there’s a daily one-stop departure that afternoon that will put you into Albuquerque just in time for dinner at your favorite Mexican restaurant. Identify the airline, the one intermediate stop and the aircraft type, please.

53. (1988) You need to fly from your company headquarters in Sioux City, Iowa down to your westernmost field office in El Paso, Texas. You were sure you’d have to make a connection somewhere but lo and behold, the SUX-ELP market is served with a single 2-stop direct flight departing SUX every evening except Saturday at 625p. Please identify the airline, the two enroute stops and the aircraft type to be flown.

54. (1983) It wasn’t so long ago that you remember flyin’ Central Airlines between Dallas and most anywhere in Nebraska. Most all of them flights was aboard Convair 600s or some such airplanes. How times have changed! These days there’s still a direct flight between Dallas and Lincoln, but it’s operated with a jet! The flight makes two stops enroute and a snack is served along the way. Identify the airline, the aircraft type and the two enroute stops please.
See post 16114 & 16117

55. (1995) You’ve had a wonderful week enjoying the sand and surf (not to mention the rum and reefers) in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Now it’s time to return home to West Elsdon, Illinois – a Chicago suburb located just one mile east of Chicago’s Midway International Airport. Unfortunately there was no direct or even convenient connecting service from Midway Airport and so you had to fly out of O’Hare where a jetway malfunction caused you to miss your connection in Miami and thus a full day of your vacation. Thankfully, one airline offers a single daily two-stop direct flight between Montego Bay and Chicago Midway. You’ve booked a pair of seats and look forward to a hassle-free return home. Please identify the airline, the two intermediate stops and the aircraft type.

56. (1982) You’ve just won big on the craps tables at Las Vegas! You’d love to ride your winning streak a bit longer but duty calls in the form of your job at Amalgamated Anti-Matter, Inc. located just outside Des Moines, Iowa. You need to be back in time for your noon shift tomorrow. Based upon past experience, you feel it’s a bit risky to take a connecting flight so you’re thrilled to discover that the LAS-DSM market is served by a single direct 2-stop flight each day. Unfortunately you won’t be able to splurge some of your newfound wealth as the airline doesn’t offer First Class but at least it arrives Des Moines in time for you to easily make it to work on time. Identify the airline, the two enroute stops and the aircraft type you’ll be flying upon.
A N S W E R E D

57. (1988) Boy, you sure do miss Western Airlines and its convenient direct flight from Vancouver, BC down to your winter home down in Palm Springs, California. Imagine then your surprise and delight to discover that the YVR-PSP market is currently served via a single two-stop direct flight departing Vancouver every afternoon except Saturday. Why, there’s even a snack served enroute! Please identify the usual triumvirate of qualifiers.

60. (1982) Back in 1982, twin engine jets were not widely used on long predominantly over-water flights. Indeed, from the east coast of the United States, only one airline operated 737 flights to destinations in the Caribbean over 1000 miles away. Identify that airline, the U.S. gateway airport from which its 737 flights departed and the two Caribbean destinations so served.

Here's a picture from a postcard of the aft lounge in PSA's Electra ...



I'm curious about the Asian artwork on the rear bulkhead. Did PSA acquire any of its L-188s from Cathay Pacific?

Surprised me too. All PSA's Electras were either brand new or ex-Lockheed stock which had just been used for odd demos. None had been anywhere near Asia as far as I can see.

As the "Bay Bridge" outside the window is quite obviously a 1959 equivalent of Photoshop, I wonder if the picture on the back bulkhead was the same.

British Airways took over British Caledonian on Christmas Eve 1987. So I'll guess BA from JFK with the Boeing 747 and Lockheed Tristar to Heathrow (and Concorde, but not a widebody), and the former B Cal route to Gatwick with a McDonnell Douglas DC-10.

35- I will open the bidding with a Frontier Airlines 737 stopping at Casper (CPR), Denver (DEN), and Memphis (MEM)

56- my first thought was the America West “midnight specials” that left LAS in the wee hours; eastbound would have first gone to Phoenix and thence most likely Omaha ... but the absence of F ruled out HP

therefore I am guessing this flight was actually a Braniff 727 operating via Dallas (DFW) and Kansas City (MCI)

An interesting artistic rendition, to be sure.....

And, of course, San Francisco did (and I believe still does) have a very vibrant Chinatown with the City having close links with Asia over the years.

BTW, I've had the opportunity to enjoy some superb Chinese food in S.F. on many, many different occasions including when I lived in the Bay Area.

And that means I'll now have to mention the outstanding Italian cuisine at several establishments in North Beach as well as other areas in the City, too......

I apologize for the delay, everyone. We had a power outage last night followed by connectivity problems. Life in Alaska. On occasion...

48. (1987) Only one airline operates between North America and London utilizing three different types of wide bodied aircraft on the same route – each built by a different manufacturer. Identify the airline and the city it serves London from with its three different types of widebodies. And what the heck - you might as well identify the aircraft types as well.

Per WHBM:

Per Toshbaf: TWA, Boeing 747, Boeing 767, Lockheed L-1011,JFK

You know, I'm pretty confident I checked through all the flights into London when I formulated this question, but as we all know, history has shown that occasionally I occasionally miss one. I am currently outside of Fairbanks while the 1987 OAG I used to research this question is 120 miles down the road at Denali. As such, I'd like to hold off on responding to your responses to this question until I return to Denali tomorrow. In the meantime, please feel free to continue to submit your thoughts on this question and I will provide answers to all tomorrow evening.

Toshbaf, keep in mind we're looking for three different aircraft manufacturers.

I'm with you on this one, J - my first thought would've been Frontier as well. But NO! We're looking for a different airline operating a different type of equipment. However, you are indeed correct on the first two legs of the itinerary. We're looking at RAP-CPR-DEN-____-LIT. Please finish this one off!

Dang! You are good! I was hoping this one might prove to be a bit more difficult but I underestimated the sheer volume of data stored away in your hippocampus. Braniff is correct! Here's the schedule...

Braniff International BN 334 Las Vegas (LAS) 140a-600a Dallas (DFW) 640a-758a B Kansas City (MCI) 825a-903a Des Moines (DSM) 727-200 X7

Sun Country ~ Boeing 727-200 ~ MSP-MKE

Although Sun Country was founded in 1982, it didn't commence flight operations until early 1983. Please, guess again!
