So who would you give this award to? Hardest working aircraft of the year (2004)


My nominee would be the NWA's DC-9's...after close to 40 years, still going strong!!!!!

yes, the DC-9 would be at the top...
a few others would be US 737's, and AA MD-80's

American's oldest MD-80s are 21 years of age, barely half that of NW's DC-9s.
Let not forget that Bolivia's 727-100 (LAB?) which is 39 yrs of age, and then there is the FedEx & UPS fleet of 727s are up there in years as well. Regards.

If its ok to answer this thread with my opinion of the hardest working aircraft in general i would have to say the DC10 and md11 for cargo carriers.
They still doing the job non stop

I have always viewed 737s as very hard working aircraft. An d I think that they probably take it out again this year. Also I feel that NZs 744s are very highly utilised

Maybe i missed the point here are we talking about a hard working work horse or a pax carrying airliner regardless of the amount of flights it makes?
As far as hard working is concerned I'd give it to the cargo carrying aircraft.

WN's 737s should be considered near the top of this list considering all the cycles they put on per day, week, month, etc. I'd call that hard-working, wouldn't you?
