An earlier reply to my posting quoted an "Airliners" magazine article
which mentioned that Sterling did, in fact, fly a CPH-KEF-YQX-OMA-SFO
(whew)service in 1970. It did not say how long this service lasted.
Sterling was no stranger to long, multi-stop charters with Caravelles
during this time period. Their crash in Dubai in 1972 was of a
Colombo (Sri Lanka) to CPH flight. That's (roughly) about as far
as from CPH to SFO, but with less overwater flying. Either way, that's
a long haul on a Caravelle, cheap charter fare notwithstanding.
