Does anyone know what ATA's plans are for its L-1011's? I've seen one source indicating they will be replaced by 757-300's, but it seems the 757 is too small to directly replace the 3star, particularly for military charters...

Flashmeister is right, The L1011s will be around for a while now. The rumors change daily. I did hear about the new MX bases though, and I can't say where they will be at this time. I heard from a ATA supervisor that the L1011s, believe it or not, have a higher dispatch rate this past month or two than the 727s.

I don't think the comment about the 1011s having a a better dispatch rate than the 727s says much, I figure it is relativly low for both. It seems the 753 will replace the 722s and the 1011s will be replaced later on with perchance, simply based on fleet commonality, 764ERX.
