Wondering if anyone knows where United operated their fleet of DC-10's throughout the years? There doesn't seem to be many or any photo's of them on their Asian or European routes. We're they primarily used on domestic routes? Which was the direct replacement for them? 772's or the 767's?
Also, was it a bit redundant/costly to have both L1011's and DC-10's operating at the same time? Which routes were better suited for each equipment type?
I flew the DC-10 on BOS-ORD-MCO //SEA-ORD // IAD-SEA legs
the L1011's operated 1986 out of SFO to OSA with onward legs to China and other countries or only Intra-Asia flights and e.g. SFO-NRT-PEK or SHA or PEK-SHA
The L1011's joined the UA fleet after the 1986 take over of Pan Am's Transpacific routes as well the 747SP's
The DC-10's also operated Intra-Asia routes like HKG-SFO or the LAX-SEA-HKG route and back
