I know, that they planned to replace them since 2001. But they are still flying. Anyone knows?
I flew on HS-TME back in February from BKK to ZRH and it was a nice flight. I asked the flight attendant for permission to visit the cockpit.
I could visit the cockpit and meet the 4 person strong crew. I asked about the replacement, but they just laughed and said, they will be flying the MD-11 for the next 10 years. Nobody knows.
