I have long been a fan of tri-jets. Especially the DC-10. I also like the L 10 11 and the 727. Are any still in service where I could buy a ticket and fly on one of these birds. I think ATAs DC10 will be charter only, so that is out. Any others?

Biman Bangladesh still flies DC-10's, but I think you'd have to like risks to do that. I haven't heard good things about Biman's maintenance practices.

Also I believe the latest incarnation of "Pan Am" operates 727's along the East Coast of the US, so that may be worth looking into.

Once again: KLM and Finnair operate a fleet of MD-11's. Please search existing threads.  Smile

At least Finnair operates them into New York so it is easy to book a flight from there.

Depending on where you fly from... Champion flys chartered 722's from DFW to Mexico destinations and LAS. I think from other locations as well. Most can be booked from www.worryfreevacations.com

What about the MD-11? There are several airlines flying these trijet aircraft, won't you fly them? If not the MD-11, then why not?

Air Namibia flies (or did fly until recently) a MD-11. Iran Air still flies the 727, they cycle thru Dubai (DXB) fairly often. Also, don't forget World Airways - they fly the MD-11 and DC-10 - mostly a charter outfit but if you're affiliated with the U.S. military there's always the chance you could get a ride on one of the rotater flights from the U.S. to Europe and points farther eastward.

It appears from TZTristar500's comments in this thread: New ATA DC-10 Picture (by MD90fan Jun 3 2007 in Civil Aviation)

that TZ will use the L1011-500 (rather than their new-and-not-ready DC10s) for the first week (i.e. first two flights) of the public charter that they are providing to the Adriatic for Adriatic Eagle Air www.adriaticeagleair.com It's a public charter, meaning you can call and buy a ticket, on an L1011, on two flights, on an American carrier. Pretty darn cool.

I saw a couple World Airways MD-11s when I was in ATL last week. It's good to see that at least they're still alive and kicking around the world.

At the moment, only BG still fly regular pax flights with DC-10s, and for the MD-11, unless a last minute change, only AY, KL and JJ still use it for regular services as RG has just done it's last ever (??) MD-11 flight.

What is recently for you ? SW retired the last of two MD-11s last September.

Last FRA-GRU-GIG (RG 8741) is scheduled for June 8th. However, I have heard that PP-VTI is staying with RG until June 23rd, so it might not be be the last flight.

You would expect some more 727 operators in Africa, but I can only think of:

Chanchangi Airlines (Nigeria)
Hewa Bora Airlines (RDC)


25 N1120A : Charters are still revenue service. I think you wanted to know about scheduled service.
26 Post contains links and images YZFOO7F : Just one for passenger service at this point. C-GXFA should be retired soon along with its cargo counterpart C-FUFA. View Large View MediumPhoto &cop
27 727Tiger : Saw a Champion Air 727 taxiing between Terminals A and B at DEN last Friday evening.
28 XXMHxLHx5LXx : Try going down to South America... well, LAB is not flying anymore... maybe still some charter flights, but AeroSur still flies the 727-200... been on
29 Yow : The 727 C-GXFA, is pretty much used on ad-hoc passenger charters and on the YOW-YFB and YUL-YFB/YVP runs when the usual 732s are in for maintenance o
30 Cchan : These are all charter airlines, so one can't really book a seat on them. White replaced the L1011 with A310? All 3 were grounded due to lack of spare
31 Transair737 : KML still runs MD-11's AMS-YVR
32 YZFOO7F : The latest I've heard is that they plan to go with a 762, but I've yet to see anything concrete. With the 2nd Herc online now, it seems like 7F is si
33 RIXrat : KLM still runs a daily service from AMS to DAR on an MD-11. My wife was on it no longer than three months ago.
34 Dalavia : Do something really exotic and fly to Pyongyang on an Air Koryo Tu-154!
35 Coleplane : Omni Air International is still flying DC10's and I think occasionally fly non-military charters/flights.
36 Post contains images PlymSpotter : SyrianAir/Syrian Arab Airways still operates the B722 - they are going to have them for a while too I am told. They also operate the Yak40, although t
37 Post contains images CirrusDriver : Ship yourself as freight and come fly the 727, MD-10 or MD11 with us at FedEx!
38 Levg79 : Does anyone know why KL stopped sending MD-11s to JFK? They were regulars in New York a couple of years ago. Leo.
39 Post contains images MrFord : Oh so no more 722 at YVO? Sad I saw C-FUFA a couple time there, impressive ! (When you're in a Dash-8...) C-FFAL (Raglan 732Adv) sounds almost quiet
40 DesertAir : Until their recent shut down, LAB was flying 727s. It looks like they should begin flying again. Also, I have noticed a CAT 727 landing frequently in
41 777law : If you're lucky you can also sometimes find a Tu-154 from Vladivostok to ICN on Vladivostok Air. . .

48 Yfbflyer : It would be interesting to see them operating a 762 at YFB but isn't that a little too big for them. Can YRT at 6000ft even handle a 762? Wouldn't th
49 YOW : YRT rarely ever sees the 722. The 762's main purpose would be to replace to 722F on the food-mail run. The YVP food-mail stop would be the main issue
