Azerbaijan Airlines flies two 727-235s (4K-AZ1/AZ2) in a Y145
configuration.  I think the main reason the 727 (esp the -200) is not
being seen overseas in passenger service more is that the airframes are
very valuable as freighters.  Many have been, and are being, converted
for that use.  In fact, fully 1/2 of the two airplanes I saw during a
two week stay in the Far East was a freighter...
