Lifting Line analysis is not suitable for low aspect ratio wing, highly swept wing or a wing undergoing large sideslip, because each of these would have significant spanwise flow gradient. To see why, it's worth revisiting the central equation of the Lifting Line, applicable to a planar wing: $$c_l(y)=a_0 \left[ \alpha - \frac{w(y)}{V_\infty} - \alpha_{L=0} +...
