The German holiday airline LTU was one of the major Lockheed TriStar operators in Europe. It was founded in Oktober 1955 as Lufttransport Union, later it was renamed Lufttransport Unternehmen. The red roofs of its aircraft fleet were a common sight at LTU's homebase Düsseldorf International. The airline flew eleven TriStars, mostly L-1011-1s, but also some TriStar 500s. The first TriStar, D-AERA, entered the fleet in May 1973.

TriStar 1 MSN 193A-1152 was originally delivered to Eastern Airlines in July 1978 as N337EA. LTU was the second user of the aircraft as D-AERP from April 1982. In May 2001, it was taken over by Liberia World Airlines. In April 2004 it became a private jet. The aircraft was broken up in 2004 at Miami Opa Locka Airport.

LTU replaced its Lockheed TriStars with Boeing 767s and McDonnell Douglas MD-11s.
