Just curious if any DL gurus know which routes were common L1011 routes back in its prime.

The only one I really remember for sure is:

--ATL-LAX

And I'm willing to bet these were L1011 routes as well:

--ATL-SFO
--ATL-SEA
--LAX-HNL
--LAX-LGA?

What about overseas routes?

--JFK-CDG??
--JFK-LGW/LHR??

I think you hit the nail on the head on every one of those....I think thats just the tip of the iceberg too. I know back then (long before I was here) they used to have them ATL-MEM and ATL-MCI in the heyday.....

Delta have never served London from New York, and have never flown under their own certificate to Heathrow.

However, a great deal of European ops in the 1980s and early 1990s were performed primarily by the L-1011s. Gradually, as the 767-300ERs came online, they supplemented L-1011-250s and -500s on international routes, but the L-1011 was still the backbone until the early mid '90s. Once they had enough MD-11s and they started dropping some Pacific ops, such as Hong Kong and Seoul, etc., the MD-11 then appeared on the Transatlantic routes, eventually relegating the L-1011s to domestic-only operations.

Transatlantic L-1011 routes included routes such as Detroit-London Gatwick, Orlando-Miami-London and Atlanta-London-Copenhagen/Frankfurt, and most Atlanta / JFK transatlantic service.

L-1011s flew all Pacific services until MD-11s came online in late '91/'92. They flew, for example, from LAX to Hong Kong via Anchorage.

L-1011s also a predominant number of routes both transcontinental and North-South in the US, including the majority of services to major Florida cities such as Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Orlando and Tampa. The last commercial L-1011 service was from Orlando to Atlanta, on July 31, 2001.

Hope this helps.

You're just skimming the surface. I won't get very detailed with my bit of info:

DEN-ATL
DEN-SLC

Don't forget about all the other L1011 flights in/out of DFW and SLC.

Do a photo search on DL L1011. More than 500 hits there. Should cover most locations I'd have thought.

Yea, I actually wanted to avoid that. Not only looking for specific route info, but any other supplemental info people can provide.

ATL-SLC
ATL-SFO
ATL-MCO
ATL-SAN
LAX-SAN
LAX-HNL
LAX-SFO
at some point they flew ATL-IAH in the late 70s early 80s with the Tristar. These are the routes I can remember off the top of my head. The L1011 was my favorite aircraft and the only reason why I became a Delta Skymiles member--now I have the last 10,000 miles that I will probably donate to charity.

They even had the L10s going from ATL-DTW and ORD-ATL. I got to go on 63 L-1011s since 1998-2001. I use to buy a ticket just to fly on the L-1011s. I flew a few times from San-Atl and back same day to go on a L-1011. I don't do that any more because all the planes suck except for the 747.
