For more informations about MD-11, I suggest to check Boeings website as well as websites of Swissair and other operators.
BTW, by 2006 the last MD-11 will leave Swissair's fleet. They will replace it with A330-200 and A340-600. This will be good for Swissair from the economical side and a little bit sad for spotters at ZRH.

The MD-11 failed to meet its performance specifications. Delta currently has 15 aircraft. They fly LAX-NRT and next year, they'll fly LAX-NGO and JFK-NRT. Delta also uses them on European routes like ATL-LGW and ATL-FRA. However, Delta will eventually replace them all with the 777. American used to have more MD-11s, but they are gradually being sold to FedEx.
