Along the lines of the DC10, is the MD-11 acceptable as well in that line?

Yes in the appropriate category. The ones you listed are authorized, we just don't have them in the fleet so I didn't include them.

Is the MD-11 a suitable replacement for the 767 or for the 777? Can we use planes from the retro fleet to fly award flights?

As far as Retro aircraft for awards at this time no. In the near future we will have awards for some of the retro aircraft.

So, Steve. As a clarification because my mind isn't straight right now,
MD-11 for 767
MD-11 for 777
MD-11 for DC-10

Just want to double check before I botch a flight.

I deleted my previous comment. Okay, the MD11 is a suitable substitute for the DC10, guys wanted to fly the PMDG MD11 in place of the DC10. There really isn't much of a difference except the MD11 has a longer range and is a little longer in length.
So, any aircraft that you sub with a DC10 you may sub with MD11.

Thanks Peter
