Caz Caswell Writes:
A pleasing looking jet airliner which lent itself to many colour schemes Very successful in the short to medium range airliners market, & a favourite by those charter companies that operated them Several British Independents, notably British Eagles leased 1-11's to several europan majors; SAS, Swissair. KLM.etc , but they never were never chosen as the as a fleet aircraft by those carriers.

Douglas Holland Adds:
Whilst the 200, 300 and 400 Series 1-11's were very reliable aircraft with Despatch Reliability at least equal to the competition, the 500 Series stretch was not.

Although a very safe aircraft there were flaws in the design resulting in Air Systems Failures caused by hose coupling disconnecting (which was, due its location a really difficult job to fix as a line maintenance item as it required Engineers who were both double jointed and had eyes on stalks), the other main problem being CSD Shaft Failures on Start-up. This resulted in either a very long delay, or an Aircraft Change.

These should, and indeed would have been resolved if the 1-11 had continued to be developed beyond the 500 series. Despite some detailed planning for new series it was not to be, and so it was left to the DC9 and MD successors to capture the long term market. This despite the initial DC9-10 Series being inferior to the BAC1-11 200 series equivalent and thus giving BAC a head start.
