there is one question though that I have about these retro airlines and livery when we make a schedule with them how do put the airline at the terminal that they would have originally been at the airport

Assuming their original terminal still exists, you'd add them to the terminal file like you would any other airline.

Here ya go. Three minutes of duckduckgo (it would have been less than one minute but I had to let the dog out)

The entire thread is quite interesting. but for those that suffer from TL;DR, I believe the original Terminal 1 is the terminal you're looking for.

Post #12 is very informative.

@ATC AlaskaGuy & others, have a look ath these sites 

http://timetableimages.com/ttimages/complete/complete.htm

http://www.departedflights.com/

Note that    http://timetableimages.com/ttimages/complete/complete.htm site. has a link to http://www.departedflights.com/  

I am thinking about making a schedule around late 70's early 80's that can use most of the retro liveries although some poetic license will be required, depanding on the airport selected, 

e.g. Ansett 744's in SFO, LAX. in 1980

Great selection of aircraft and airlines. The late 70's to early 80's is a perfect time for your aircraft. Will this be using existing airports? I'm really looking forward to seeing this new retro package. Thanks to all that made it happen!

Yeah Eligrim does a great job detailing the different airlines that he shows. He doesn't show all of them but does show a majority of them. Great Job! Can't wait for it's release!

And when will we get a retro airport, like Idlewild, for example? 😏

Likely won't happen, for a multitude of reasons.

Could be, but only with a different game engine. Kai Tak would not be Kai Tak with a 20 mile straight in final.

Most of the early airports released are already retro 😉

Sadly, several were released retro - including 2 of the 3 base airports..b

He has already stated the plan and I am sure it has not changed in the week since you last asked the question!
