In fact, I propose that we start TriJet Airlines using these great planes. We could give the 727s the BR715 and the others those sweet RR Trent 550s on the A346s. We could have great service and low fares.

Speaking of which, Does anyone know the plans for Delta's last 727 flight is? I know it is supposed to be the beginning of April (April 3) but I dunno. Does anyone know which route it is supposed to take. I imagine it will be Hub-Hub flight. CVG-ATL, SLC-ATL, MCO-ATL, ATL-MCO.... ETC....

you are entitled to your dislike for a certain aircraft type or a certain category of airliners . . . but as this is a rather civilised forum, "cursing something to a horrible grave" is perhaps considered rather extreme. This is especially so when considering your very tender age!
The TriStar is probably older than you by many years, it was here first and if you didn't like it, too bad. Many (both old and young) have love the TriJets, enjoyed flying the TriJets, ogling at them, photographing them, listening to them take-off etc
Bangkok . . . where Orient Thai has just painted her L-1011-1 in full livery! Long Live the TriStar and other TriJets.

I wholeheartedly agree with you, Aviasian.
Unless Apollo13 would care to enlighten us with some objective reasons for this "hatred" (I still don't quite understand how you can "hate" an object), I have to consider that particular post to be a little on the immature side.

I propose we should start a 'Tri-jet Museum', or at least a webpage devoted to the three-holers. Let see, we have to have the Trident, 727, DC-10, L-1011, MD-11, Falcon 900, Tu-154 and of course the Yak-40/42. Did I leave anything out? If so, feel free to add it. Regards.

As look would have it I am travelling on the LAST L1011 500 that is being operated by its original owner BWIA....
As for Appolo 13 your comment is uncalled for. Airlines sugh as BWIA Delta etc would tell you that the L1011 served them well and I am sure that if Lockheed was still in the business of civil jet aircrafts that L1011ng if built with teh same quality and excellence would be bought by the L1011 operators.
The L1011 was technologically advance in the era it was produced. It served with BWIA for 22 years actually when it is retired from BWIA it would have served for 23 years 1980-2003 and has help to keep BWIA one of the safest airlines in the World. So dispite your un educated and paltry comment the L1011 although not a financial success is respected for the quality with which it was build.

Since teijets are pretty much few and far between nowadays, I really miss them as well. It kinda makes me regret not having appreciated them more when they were around back in the day. Actually, even as early as three years ago!
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

There have been no fatal accidents of any L-1011, for any reason, for as long as you have been alive. According to your profile, you've only been alive for the past 13-15 years. Or have you been re-incarnated, and this happened in your previous life? That would explain it. So please give us the details of this accident that occured to your mother in your previous life.
Or quit while you're behind.
