Can anyone tell me why the L1011 TRISTAR where favored more for ordering then the DC10'S back in the seventies and eighties. Eastern TWA PAN AM DELTA UNITED had them all but what was it that these carriers loved these jetliners. I mean RR or rolls royce nearly went bankrupt and left the L1011 project in limbo. I would have preferred the DC10 over the Trisater yet they did'nt last as long for passenger service compared with the DC10 aircraft any coments I would be interested in them Thank you

Possibly Hughes' Lockeed connections??

Most pilots loved both the Connie and the TriStar.

The Tristars or L1011'S were the first jetliner to introduce INS CAT111 which the DC10-30 became the most advanced jetliner in that era
