I agree with you regarding the VC-10. But, leaving aside the operating cost, its big drawback is the VC-10 only had the range for London-Chicago and therefore it couldn’t (unlike the B707) operate non-stop from London to the US West Coast.

Many years ago the US carriers operated the world’s largest and most modern aircraft. How things have changed today.
