This is only a listing of flights that would be realistic to you since you have limited funds – NOT a comprehensive listing:

DC10 - NW has scheduled flights to Europe, Asia and Hawaii... sometimes they'll use them for repositioning / aircraft substitute for high loads (but this is only done a few days out) within the domestic system...

B727 - Your best bet would be to purchase a one-way DEN-LAS ticket via MLT Vacations -- they sell them as low as $50 inclusive. TMA and PanAm 3 also operate the B727 and offer affordable fares.

B732 - HP and DL use them on a variety of routes. WN has them as well, but they're getting difficult to seek out.

L1011 - You're probably out of luck here, unless you spot an equipment change for TZ.

MD-11 - Again, probably not feasible for you.

MD11 - Varig Brazilian Airlines still uses these, I think. From LAX-Japan, or LAX-Brazil.

Maybe I'm wrong, don't know.

AS also uses 737-200 for some of their alaskan routes. They're Combi's, really cool aircraft.

MD-11 ATL-MCO on DL...At least 1 a day...
727 a few charter companies out of SFB fly them...Namely Pan Am...But that's mostly east coast and Caribbean routes...Don't know how feasible they are for you...

For the Boeing 737-200: Aloha Airlines uses them for their inter-island-service


Born to fly! It's more than a passion - it's a yearning!! At home in DUS(Dusseldorf)!

KLM, Swiss and Finnair use the MD-11 as well on pax services from the US to Europe. Delta has withdrawn the MD-11 though.
Air Transat uses the L-1011 on flights from Canada to Florida and the Caribbean but they will phase them out soon. From then on, flying Orient Thai from Thailand is about the only possibility.
You can also still fly the 727 in Mexico, with Aviacsa from Tijuana to MEX.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Hi United4everDEN,
At Soekarno-Hatta Airport (WIII), you could spot:
B727's operated by Jatayu, CKG Jakarta to MES Medan
B737-200's operated by Bouraq, Mandala, Batavia Air ,Merpati and Bali Air to almost every busy airports in Indonesia
L-1011 , Lockheed Tristar Whisperliner, ...um, never seen one these days, the last operator know to fly this beautiful a/c to Jakarta was Cathay Pacific.

If you take a trip to Europe, you can fly Ryanair 737-200s, although they are starting to gradually phase them out - this is likely to take a few years, all the same.

L1011s are a rarity anywhere in the world now - speaking for Europe the only examples I have seen in the last couple of years have been Air Luxor & Euro Atlantic (both portugese charter carriers), so the likelihood of ever flying one of these is pretty remote. Air Transat still fly at least one - but tou'll have to be quick!

As someone said earlier, Northwest is the easiest way to fly the DC-10 these days.

727s - now there's a challenge! Gotto be Pan Am, I suppose....

MD11s - a bit easier - SWISS, KLM etc....

------------

Still - you're 'wanna fly' list is a damn sight easier than mine - I would kill to fly the following aircraft:

Boeing 707; Boeing 720; Boeing 727-100; Boeing 737-100; DC-8 50/60/70; Convair 880/990; Vickers VC-10/Super VC-10; Trident 1/2/3; Vickers Viscount; HS-748..... No, how do you think I feel??!  Nuts

I do not believe TZ uses the L-1011 for any of its scheduled routes. TZ may still use them for their charters; military and otherwise.

HELLO? DL retired the MD-11 on Jan. 1.

Martinair doesn't fly to TPA anymore, and they never operated scheduled MD-11 in here.

Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.
