Who Is Still Flying The L-1011 For Pax?

Sun Aug 05, 2007 4:16 am

Does anyone have concise information about what airlines if any still operate the L-1011 on regularly scheduled passenger routes? The only airline I can think of is Globejet Airlines but they offer charter service only I believe.

Check out these L-1011 bathrooms...

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

I am not sure if they are still flying, but Air Rum operates (operated) the L-1011.

Hi!

LIS is probably one of the "last heavens" for the L1011-500 Tristar, there those 2 that are shown above ( Luzair and EuroAtlantic ) but the other Luzair L1011-500, CS-TMR, just came back after some years stored in AMS.

There's also ANOTHER L1011-500 in LIS, this one used to be a YES Air one but is now wfu.

Hewa Bora Airways used to fly the L1011 weekly to Brussels from the Congo, however this has been replaced by a 767-200ER. Now supposedly the Tristar was then going to be moved onto a route to Dubai where less stringent noise regulations are in force, but I'm not sure if this has occurred.

SkyGate also operate several on a charter basis from Jordan, as do Starjet - but I think they are basically the same company. They don't exactly go anywhere very often though! I'd say the most likely routes flown today aside of the remaining ATA flights (if any?) are occasional or one off charters out of LIS with either Luzair or EuroAtlantic Airways.

And the B767 is now also WFU (stored at BRU). Now HBA flies with an A330-300 (from Brussels Airlines).

Thai Sky Airlines stopped flying the L1011 in august 2006 due to lack of parts. That was the easiest option to get on an L1011. Me and some other Airliners.netters flew them to Hong Kong in 2005 and 2006.
Mahan Air only leased it in 2005 as well but it's not currently in service.

ATA still has 3 L15s left with two remaining through 2008. They fly almost daily for the US military.

Check out this shot showing all three together at their main base of DFW:
