I don't recall Lloyd operating a DC-10 these days or before and certainly not a direct route from MIA to VVI after they lost their 763's so my best guess would be its either a cargo flight or something they leased, any ideas?

Thanks for the replies. I knew that their 763's are off to Mexicana, leaving them with their 727's which route VVI-PTY-MIA-IAD-MIA-PTY-VVI on certain dates and some other flgihts inside South America I think.
I did see a flight from MIA to VVI with a 752 with the scheduled flight number (901) today and its headed directly from VVI to MIA tonight. The DC-10 is not answered yet and its flight number gives no clues.
Quoting Wjcandee (Reply 3): Given the fact that they are using NAO aircraft, and the aircraft look horribly late from the original schedule yesterday, maybe they had to call up a World DC10 to pick up the slack.
That could very well be since the DC-10 departed 6 hours after the 752 today so maybe it was just that.
Quoting Werkur767 (Reply 4): Lloyd Aereo boliviano is operating a Lockeed Tristar L1011, but i don't know if they're operating the L1011 on the route for MIA. I feel sad about the loss of their 763, operated two 763.
I think I heard about this and even saw a photo of it at Bolivia but I think that was or is being used to MAD. Besides, if this was the aircraft which operated the flight, the aircraft type wouldn't have been shown as DC-10 on Flightaware but rather L101.
