I have flown on our DC-10s over 150 times (seriously) either deadheading or nonrevving and have no problems with them. The 282 seat DC-10-30 is not that bad, as there is one block less of BusinessFirst and one block more of Coach. Not to worry, though, those are mainly used on the high-demand Air Mike flights to Japan and Hawaii. You can put money on the fact that the DC-10 you will be on is a 242 seater, unless they pull one out of Micronesia for maintenance, which is unlikely since CO has a widebody overhaul facility in HNL. The good thing about that plane is the fact that there are usually a good 15-20 empty seats in BF on those routes. The only time you see that entire cabin full is when you are on the DC-10 to LGW. Even in coach, the entertainment is good, and I do enjoy the food.
I miss those DC-10-10's with the First Class Pub. Anyone remember those?
