Last Flight

Jet America began operating on November 16,
1981, with a flight from its base at Long
Beach Airport to Chicago O'Hare Int Airport.
The airline later added service to five other
destinations. The airline operated a modern
fleet of eight McDonnell Douglas MD-82
aircraft. In 1985 Jet America joined with
Disney to advertise a direct route from
Dallas-Fort Worth Int Airport to Long Beach
Airport for people to visit Disneyland in
its 30th anniversary year. Late in 1986,
the airline received buyout offers from
Delta Air Lines and Alaska Air Group.
The airline accepted Alaska's bid and by
the end of the year the acquisition had
been completed. After initially attempting
to operate the two airlines separately but
finding it costly to do so, Jet America
was merged into Alaska Airlines on October 1,
1987. Ironically, Alaska eventually cut its
service out of Long Beach leaving LGB a
virtual ghost town until Jet Blue’s arrival
in September, 2001.


CAPTAIN
PETE GUGLIELMINI

AIRLINE PILOT / FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR



I flew for ONA till the end in 1978.
I started as a First officer on the
DC-8 and ended as a DC-9 Captain.

I flew for Jet America as an MD-80 Captain.
Loved Jet America, great company and
very nice people, made lots of friends.

Porter Pierce was one of my co-workers.
Alaska Airlines bought us, mid eighties,
I flew as an MD-80 Captain until I retired
early 2000.

I flew the Russia Far East which was
interesting, but I spent most of my
time in a lot of south of the border
vacation destinations.


Great to see everybody on the website!
