Sorry this may have been posted previosly, but I would like to know which airlines still maintain an active fleet of DC-10s for schedule flights apart from the JAL group and Biman Bangladesh? Thanks.

My Travel Airways have one DC 10-30 left in their fleet. They have recently retired the three DC 10-10's that they had in their fleet and they are now sitting at Exeter airport I think.

NW does NOT have any DC-10-40s, international or otherwise. The last one was retired at the beginning of 2003. All NW DC-10s are -30s, which are flying both international and domestic routes.

Fed Ex has both DC-10s & MD-11s actively flying freight today. Northwest has 22 DC-10-30s still in revenue service. World Airways also has both the DC-10 & MD-11 in service. And Gemini is another cargo carrier still employing the DC-10. All I can think of at the moment. Regards.

Ghana Airways DC10, and JAT use them too still. Apart from Garuda, JAL, NW, My Travel, and a whole slew of cargo operators (fed-ex, DAS, Gemini, etc), i think Iberia still has a couple of DC10's stored but ready to use if need be. Cant think of any more.

Well I just saw a Fed Ex DC-10 (or was it an MD-10) take off over my apartment a minute ago, so yeah Fed Ex still has them, plenty of them.

Emery had 5 or 6 DC-10-10Fs...all ex-Continental. They were returned to the leasing companies. Now sitting in the desert, these birds are 30+ yrs old and most likely won't return to service again. Regards.

World Airways and Omni Air International (OAI) both have DC-10s in their fleets. World has 2 DC-10-30s and 4 DC-10-30Fs. OAI has 5 DC-10-30s, and 2 DC-10-30Fs. Ryan Int'l has operated 2 DC-10-10s in the past, one is supposedly being b/u, and the latest photo of the other in the db is August of 2003.
