Boeing 727, DC-10, L-1011, MD-11, TU-154, Yak-40, and Yak-42 | The Trijet Fan Thread

Im sure there are some fans of this plane. According to Wikipedia 176 of 200 MD-11 are still in commercial service. Most of them the are freighters:

FedEx MD-11 bearing Special Panda Livery

Hi,

We were airside at DEL airport over the last weekend for 3 days. There was a FedEx MD11 with the Special Panda livery applied on it.

Here is my shot of the aircraft with the Panda decals applied. Click the thumbnail to view the high resolution of the shot.

Overtaking a Lufthansa Cargo MD11!!!



Quote:
Description

Crossing the North Atlantic on NAT tracks has aircraft in the same direction separated by 1000' instead of the usual 2000' which makes for some great views. We were at Flight Level 310 and travelling at mach 0.84 only about 10-15kts faster than the MD11 which I guess was flying at 0.82. Unfortunately they didn't have cameras.

My second favorite plane after the MD-80. Flew on a KLM MD-11 back in 1994 from AMS-LOS. Great flight.

KLM still uses 8 MD-11's on intercontinental routes. From 2014 the MD-11's will replace by new Airbus and Boeings.

From the 10 MD-11s that the KLM used to have 4 have already been retired from July last year. This means that they only operate 6 right now and from those 3 more will be retired this summer. In the summer 2013 schedule there are currently only MD-11 flights to Los Angeles (3 flights per week in June and September) and Toronto where it will fly mixed with the A332. This last route is the latest service reduction that was announced last week.

I won't be surprised if the winter 2013 schedule won't have any scheduled MD-11 flights anymore. The last 3 will probably be used as reserve before they will leave the fleet in 2014.

So anyone that still wants to fly the MD-11 on a scheduled passenger flight should do so this year, otherwise it might be too late.

it seems that flights to Toronto will be mixed with B744, and sooner there were A332 and B744 mixed services

The newest trijet is Falcon 7X. It is true that it is brand new, selling like hot cakes, and what Dassault is doing is upgrading their smaller planes - Falcon 2000 versions, and Falcon SMS. But what would the next big Falcon be?

KLM has loaded the winter 2013 schedule (starting 17 October 2013), there are still 2 routes that are operated by the MD-11.
http://airlineroute.net/2013/04/04/kl-w13update3/

Amsterdam – Montreal: Daily
Amsterdam – San Francisco: 5 weekly


These schedules are always subject to change, so keep an eye on any updates if you want to fly on a MD-11 in the last year of operation.
