Wish I had been around to see them. I have been able to find a few brief details about Court Line, particularly the collapse of the company and its impact.
Both photos and information on their gorgeous pibnk and yellow Tristars is hard to find. Were only 2 L1011s ever ordered/operated? Did they fly primarily from LTN
? I know a series of charters to the Carribean was operated but were the aircraft deployed on the usual 'sun' routes? I know Malaga, Alicante, Palma, Tenerife, Gerona and in those days Rimini were the first big package holiday destinations. Were these served?
Was the interiors of Court Lines L1011s highly configured (10 abreast?) what were they like inside? did they have the downstairs galley? did the 'hosties' wear pink and yellow uniforms/mini skirts to match the aircrafts paint schemes?
A lot of questions I know, but I have long been fascinated with Court Line and suprisingly information on this, one of the UKs first holiday airlines is hard to find.
I know a little about Autair but it is Court and its charter operations I am particualrly interested in. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
