Default All L1011 experts...

I posted this in 1:1 forum but figured this area gets more looks 🙂

Which airline flew the final revenue flight and when was it. This is the very final L1011 passenger jet in the world.
Thanks

ATA was the last in the US in 2008.
EuroAtlantic was the last in Europe in 2010.


Wikipedia claims the last commercial flight was in January 2019. No citation, though.


It looks like there is some airline in Jordan called Barq that did have L-1011's beyond 2010 but I can't find any other info as to when they got rid of them.

Let’s see if someone can shed some light 🙂

Forget about Barq Aviation. I understand Barq is kind of an obscure company that tried or is sill trying to sell L-1011 flights (with or for whatever those flight would be) in the Arab world (Afghanistan, Iraq etc.). Someone reported that the company owner and manager also tried to get one or two of his TriStars (which are in desert-storage for years) into the American register several years ago - reservation application was filed - but they never made it into it. This could imply that he wanted to sell the aircraft at the time, even it was only for selling spare parts.

All in all: Barq doesn’t count when you are looking for an airline with L-1011 revenue services.

Didn't Sands (Casinos) operate some L-1011 until not that long ago?

Sands is not an airline. I’m looking for final commercial airline not cargo or private 🙂

Revenue flight = commercial flight = final scheduled or inclusive-tour flight by an operator (not leased aircraft).

So, as per Homer‘s original request, we are in 2010 and with EuroAtlantic Airways. Any other suggestions?

They haven’t done any -500 model yet, I’d opt for JC Wings (if at all)...
