Airlines Operating Tristars On Scheduled Flights

Mon Nov 21, 2005 6:51 pm

Hey folks,

do you know of any airline around the globe that still operates L1011 Tristars on scheduled flights?

I know some charter airlines that fly them, but I was wondering of these great birds are still being used on scheduled flights....

Thanks for your help.

Hewa Bora?
Thai Sky Airlines?

Those are the only L1011 operators with scheduled services I can think of...

I think I saw some Orient Thai TriStars this summer in BKK but I cannot confirm these are used on scheduled flights.

Me too, seen them on a remote stand beside a 747-200 ex KLM I think.

Orient Thai don't have TriStars - could you have muddled them up with Thai Sky?

I believe Greece Airways/Air Scotland had a couple of them going to be crossing the atlantic, but not until next year, and maybe this is looking doubtful as the airline is taking a break for the christmas period and not operating flights, from what I gather.
