Delta L1011

I have noticed that Delta is not painting their L1011s in their new colour scheme. Are they getting rid of them soon?

Yes they are. They've already been removed from transatlantic service, and in a year or two they will likely be out of Delta service completely. Some of Delta's older L1011s have also been retired, I believe. TWA has already retired all of their L1011s.

All Delta L-1011s will be gone by early 2002 if not sooner. The have retired about 12 in the past 4 months.

yep, they're on their way out, the last ones to go will be the L1011-500s, but no plans are in the works for new paint
