'^EKLY TRAFFIC MEMORANDUM #19 November 29, 1948_
1. BABY CHICKS - Do not load baby chicks in rear compartment any more.
2. AIR TRIP INSURANCE POLICIES - These policies will now be requisitioned from the Accounting
Department in the same manner in which tickets are requisitioned,
3“ LOG BOOKS - Now that the log book is to be handled as outlined to you fellows in terminating
stations in Mr, Nickerson's letter of November 23, I do hope that we will not have any more
cases of a trip having to return to the ramp to pick up log book. Let's all watch this and
definitely eliminate this type of delay,
4„ DAMGED RUDDER CABT.F3 - Aircraft 029 arrived in INT recently and it was found that the rudder
balance cable in the tail of the aircraft was badly stretched. It seems apparent that this
could only be caused by the leaving off of the rudder board at times when the crew was not^
in the cockpit, All concerned are urgently requested to please pay strict attention to this
and to do everything possible to insure against damage of any kind to our aircraft,
FAMLY PLAN - For your additional information on the Family Plan, I wish to give the follow
ing example;
Our Flight 21 on Wednesday is delayed account weather or mechanical and arrives
CVG after American's last flight has departed for Chicago. (Or any other point.)
Should the pa ssengersdecide to stay over in order to take advantage of the Family
Plan rates, they may go out on American the following day.
Should there be any questions, please let me have them,
LOST OR MSPLACED ARTICT.F.’^ - There have been several instances recently which indicate that
s^e of our stations are not forwarding lost or misplaced items to our central Lost and
Found Department here at INT as promptly as they should. All station managers are requested
to check your stations and forward these items, along iidth all available information per
taining to where and when found, to INT immediately,
7c DELTA DC-6 - As of December 1, Delta's Flight 442 will be discontinued; however, their
Flxght”T48 will depart CVG 2127, arrive Chicago 2136. This is DC-6 equipment—remember the
Extra—Service Charge, (incidentally, all of Delta's DC-6 flight numbers will begin with the
numerai" ""6'' lj~
8, DECEMBER 10 SCHEDULE CHANGE - All stations have been forwarded copies of 1st Revised Page
No, 1 of General Schedule No. 7 which shows the inauguration of Flights 24 and 25 operating
between SDF and LEX. There are also a nmber of smalL changes in the schedule. For ex
ample ^ Trips 11 and 15 depart IMN 10 minutes earlier--«3 minutes allowed between IMN and
SOP—=then 5 minutes flying time has been added to TRI-LEX. All stations are requested to
make a very careful study of these schedules. It is most important to advise all passengers
concerned of the earlier departures and arrivals as shown on this schedule change. It is
felt that the imuguration of Flights 24 and 25 will be of considerable help to SDF and
that Flight 16 vri.ll run a very high load factor out of LEX. I laiow you boys can make it
worko
9„ DECEI^IBER 1 FARES - Practically all fares will change. Watch them carefully.
