TWA-Trans World Airlines October 27, 1974

This is a 47 page timetable from when TWA was offering round the world service. TWA was purchased by American Airlines in 2001 prior to 9/11.

TWA would later give up it's Asia service which included Guam, Okinawa, Taipei, Bangkok and Hong Kong. They would continue to operate to Bombay even while I was working for them.

The timetable shows which flights were operated by 747's and L1011's and includes fares in all their markets. One way New York - Los Angeles was USD243.00 (USD1131.00 in todays dollars) in First Class and New York - London was USD578.00 (USD2689.00 in todays dollars) oneway in First Class.

TWA also had cargo only aircraft across the Atlantic, Pacific, and within the USA.

This was an era when widebody aircraft, mainly the L10's were flying to such cities as Dayton, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Kansas City. Today you are lucky to see mainline jets in cities that used to have widebody aircraft.
