DC10 Vs MD11

Fri Nov 03, 2000 7:52 pm

I have just return after a trip to Malaysia and Indonesia. One of my flights was a Garuda Indonesia DC-10-30 flight. In the inflight magasine, I could see, that their fleet was B737, B747, A330 and DC10. No MD-11.

In 1995 I was on a Garuda MD-11 flight to Frankfurt. Can anybody please tell me why some airliners like Garuda out phase out the MD-11's, but keep on flying the much older DC10's.

Any comments ?

Hi,
if I'm not wrong Garuda leased some MD-11 but had to withdraw them due to high costs of leasing, maybe after the financial crisis of 1997 in Indonesia.
DC10 are probably owned.

Garuda was very unhappy with the performance of MD-11. They were returned to the lessor. But, DC-10's have been performing very well.
