On the original question...there are perhaps 12 or 13 operators of the Tristar left. And out of 169 ships still in existence...maybe 65 to 70 are still flying. The rest are parked, unlikely to ever fly again. Sad situation indeed. I truly hope that at least one Tristar is saved for prosperity. Regards.
