I flew LTU DUS/LAX as well, but I recall the flight
landed in SFO first for customs clearance and then
flew to LAX. The flight then returned LAX/DUS
non-stop. If it can fly DUS/SFO nonstop, I dont
think DUS/LAX is that much farther. I must say
that even though LTU's flights were Charters at the
time...the service was great

Can't find a photo of my favourite Tristar livery. Anyone remember Court Line (British charter airline of the 70s) The first TriStar I ever saw was at Luton and was painted in an amazing all pink colour scheme

Re BWIA - The L15s in its new livery is referred to in-house as the Great Grapefruit!
I was on the jumpseat of a BW L15 about a year ago when we were taxiing out at MIA - the ground controller came on and said (in an incredulous tone):
"Ah, West Indian ... are you going to be painting all your aircraft like that?"
BW Captain: "Affirmative!"
MIA Ground: "Er - wow!"
The original plan was to paint them a bronze/gold colour. It looked even worse than the current scheme! The interiors of the aircraft are also pretty awful - the side walls, ceilings, bins, toilets, galleys etc are all painted gunmetal grey; and the seats are upholdstered in a lime green (for J) and salmon pink (for Y) vinyl.

The new BWIA scheme with the steelband sported on the tail and forward fuselage is just great! The scheme looks very attractive and stands out in a crowd. The sight of their 2 flying TriStars parked next to one another at the new terminal at POS is a really spectacular sight indeed.
