TriStar Appreciation Page

Wed Apr 09, 2008 12:29 am

Hi, everyone. I just wanted to add a post with your views and experiences involving the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar (or is it Tristar?) I never had the fortune of flying on one, but my uncle flew on DL 1949, the last Delta L-1011 flight. Anything you have to share about this awesome jet is welcome. Thanks for any input.

Oh man you missed it!
It was a thrill!


I flew on a Delta L1011 from Los Angeles to Atlanta back in 1989.
Sat just two rows from the very back. It was a very comfortable flight from what I remember.

I think Rum Air still uses the L1011 so you may want to take a trip to the Middle-East to fly on one.

By far the L-1011 is the best aircraft I have ever flown. Returning to the 767 was a depressing step down when the Tristar left the fleet.

hmm, I wonder if the parents of UltimaDelta ( in the 13-15 age bracket) can be warmed up to the idea of Erik to go to the Mid East, and possibly have to convert to Islam first to be able to get on a Rum Air hadj flight. Silly
Unfortunately there are no safe scheduled Tristar flights left, but LuzAir of Portugal might be the best possibility.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

You don't need to convert to Islam to convert to Islam. Leaving the airport may be a different story.  Smile
What's absurd is that Rum Air doesn't serve rum on their flight!  Silly
