I've done this flight on Air Koryo and the reverse on Air China.

As we wave our respective willies on this thread, is anyone actually taking notes?

Or indeed assessing significance?

Anyone flown scheduled further south than PSA?

GBZ (Great Barrier Island) - AKL on Great Barrier Airlines on a Britten-Norman Trislander! Beautiful flight, although a bit cramped

in the 1970s UA operated a mainline FAT-MCD flight (56 miles apart by car) - the flight continued on to SFO. If (fading) memory serves, it used either a B-727 or B-720.

Not open to the public, but as a non-rev I took some EWR-LGA flights on CO. The "flight" was essentially a way to ferry an aircraft over to LGA so that it could operate a revenue flight.

Did you mean Merced? (MCE)

MCD is Mackinac Island Airport

I am amazed at the short routes flown by United mainline aircraft not that long ago, before the infestation of the Barbies.

I did VER-MEX in the now defunct Mexicana de Aviacin, on a trip that went from being EZE-MEX-VER-MEX-EZE to EZE-ACA-MEX-VER-MEX-COR-EZE due to strong winds in MEX and thick fog (and no radar) in EZE. So that would add ACA-MEX and MEX-COR in the weird list.

A couple others 'strange' at least for non-Argentinians may be

REL - FTE (Trelew, Chubut - El Calafate, Santa Cruz)
AEP - CRD (Aeroparque Jorge Newbery, Buenos Aires - Comodoro Rivadavia, Chubut)
RGL - AEP (Ro Gallegos, Santa Cruz - Aeroparque Jorge Newbery, Buenos Aires)

Actually, when looking up the code for Ro Gallegos, could not find it here and had to resort to good old Google!

And maybe not many of you have flown MAD-ALG... or maybe yes.

ACA-MEX on the weird list? Is there another ACA that is not Acapulco?

Short, yes. One that no FTer has ever done? No way.

I'm trying to figure out which airport you meant here, as I'm guessing the question isn't who has been South of Pisa. USH is the obvious one (done that). There are regular tourist flights to one of the Russian air bases on Antarctica, but not sure if it's got a 3 letter code

Allegheny absorbed Mohawk in 1972 ... I flew ELM-BGM-BOS on a Mohawk BAC 1-11 that spring
