That was dropped because it generated drag and I believe there was also a problem with the hot air being sent forward during reverse.

I was lucky enough to fly the L10 twice, SLC-JFK and SLC-LAX, both on DL. The one on SLC-LAX (which continued to HNL) still had the "disco" interior of turquoise, orange, and yellow seats.

In the mid to later-90's, SLC saw quite a few L10's, with multiple daily flights to LAX, SEA, ATL, and other cities. Other than ATL, those are all narrowbodies now.

I had the joy of flying the L-1011 on DL from PDX-SEL-TPE-BKK back in the 90's. We were the first frequent flyer redemption pax on that route....or at least that's what they told us. It was 100K miles per person for first class then.

Me, only once. Air Lanka MLE - CMB in 1999, as they had an A320 go tech. It was ex-ANA, still had remnants of the ANA branding in the pax cabin. I was lucky, as the type was already well on its way out at that time, and would never / have never had another chance.

The air con did not work on board either, it was 100 deg on the tarmac at MLE.

Nice, 2-3-2 even in coach!

No, it was 2-4-2 originally, as shown in your Eastern artwork. The 4 seats in the middle were separated by a narrow divider where coats/jackets could be hung up.

Later went to 2-5-2, and a few carriers, mainly charter/leisure carriers, were 3-4-3. Even Pan Am had cramped 3-4-3 charter-type seating in Y class on their 12 L-1011-500s. They were best avoided. After DL acquired several ex-Pan Am L15s from UA (they'd gone to UA as part of the Pacific routes purchase deal), DL converted them from 10-abreast to 9-abreast like the rest of their L-1011s.

BA's early L-1011-1s used mainly within Europe were also 3-4-3.

First bird I ever flew on as a nine year old kid. SFO-DFW-MCO on DL in 1976. Was awesome. I felt like a king. Flew it many more times on Eastern, Hawaiian and LTU. So much more elegant than the awful DC-10.

Tristar has always and will forever be my favorite plane!
There is something magical about Tri-jets, they simply look so elegant and majestic!

I recall, thirty or so years ago, how I travelled from Singapore to London via AIR CANADA with a stop over at Bombay.
I also recall at level flight, the plane seems to tilt upward a bit. Some sort of the feature of Tristar as I was being told but need some confirmation. The plane flew with its head slightly upward as I recalled.

I flew several times on TW TriStars between CDG and JFK or BOS. Even once between SFO and LAX back in the early 90s. The flights were never packed so I could enjoy the 5 middle seats as a bed on the night flights back to Paris.

Easter vacation 1983. I had it backwards though, the EWR-TPA flight was on a Pan Am DC-10, the TPA-EWR flight was on a Pan Am L1011. I've been trying to figure out for a long time why it was a DC-10 to TPA but an L1011 back to EWR (not that i'm complaining as I got a chance to fly on two unique Pan Am Widebodies).

My theory is that one, probably the L1011, was an equipment sub or my other theory is that it was scheduled that way for that day. I've seen in some timetables Pan Am from MIA, for whatever reason, would schedule different planes for a flight on different days of the week.

I agree. The most beautiful jetliner.

I first flew on an L-1011 in 1977; TWA from JFK to DEN. After clearing a tumultuous thunder storm leaving JFK, we flew into the sunset the whole way. Such a memorable flight.

I have taken the L-1011 on other occasions but this one sticks out in memory most of all.

Learned the hard way about aircraft pressurization and got a massive headache.

Cool that you can remember your first flight on such a classic aircraft, but I don't understand your comment about pressurization. What did you learn?

I agree. The most beautiful jetliner.

Indeed. Best handling airliner with the most comfortable cockpit, too.

Actually, I like the Eastern Hockey Stick among the best on the L-1011 also. I was simple and attractive.

I almost never get into preferences for color schemes here, but I agree with you on this one BoeingGuy. The wide hockey stick on white fuselage is a classic on the aircraft.

White or polished? Polished for me.

White for me!
