Yes, but you will have to be enrolled in the UK or Pakistan military and be assigned to an international mission. Other than that unfortunately there are no more pax configured L-1011 flying.

Euro Atlantic from Portugal discontinued the L-1011 in 2010 as the last commercial pax operator.

IIRC, the last service that you could hope to fly on as a civilian was the RAF to Ascension Island and the Falklands. But that is now operated by a chartered A330.

A contributor to this site flew on a civil L1011 in Pakistan a few weeks ago. So far he has kept remarkably silent on the details but it definitely happened. So it is possible...
