Final DC-10 Scheduled Passenger Flight is December 1st

HOLY CRAP THEY EXTENDED THE 60,000 POINT CHASE INK OFFER FOR AN EXTRA DAY!!!!!!!! OH MY!!!!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??????

Oh wait, that’s not what I was about to write. Hard not to get up in the excitement of 241 articles about that. I was writing for you plane geeks who might want to grab a seat on the last scheduled DC-10 flight.

Biman Bangladesh, the last DC-10 passenger flight operator, will be retiring their final 3-engine bird when they receive 777-300ERs to replace their DC-10s.

The last flight will depart Abu Dhabi on December 1st at 1am, make an intermediate stop in Sylhet, Bangladesh, before touching down a little after 9am in Dhaka. You can purchase that Abu Dhabi – Dhaka flight for just $200, which seems like a bargain until you consider you’ll be flying a 30-year old plane in coach in the middle of the night. Whatever. It’s a chance to be a part of history, unless they don’t take delivery of the 777s, and they just continue flying the DC-10s for a while.

Who’s in for the trip? You could use some of those 60,000 POINTS YOU GOT FROM SIGNING UP FOR THE CHASE INK!!!!! AND STILL HAVE SOME LEFT OVER TO TRANSFER TO ONE OF THEIR MANY PARTNERS!!!!!!!

  1. Nostalgia. I remember taking the DC-10 coming to NY for the first time. The routing was Dhaka-Kolkata-Brussels-NY.

  2. Wait, what are you saying? There is an Ink CC with 60k sign up bonus?

    • Dang, I must have missed it too. How come there were no blog posts about the bigger sign up bonus?

      • Say wha? Are you guys actually trying to tell us there was a deal out there offering a whole 10,000 extra points above the usual 50,000? Not very realistic. You do realize how lives could be changed with an extra TEN THOUSAND points? How gullible do you think we are?

  3. I am actually very seriously considering going on the trip.

  4. Flights are booked. Hard to believe that I’m doing this, but it probably isn’t the stupidest thing I’ve done. :D

    • I can’t believe you actually BOUGHT the Biman flight — is that refundable? Why don’t I believe that they’re actually going to take delivery of that 777 and retire the DC-10 on that date?
