I believe it's just because they haven't hit the D check....aside from the -700's, they are some of the newest airplanes in the fleet.
I'd be surprised if there's any plans to get rid of them, mainly because the market is so soft right now. Eventually, they might go when Stage IV becomes a reality and demand is higher, but that could easily be a decade from now.

SJCguy or 737doctor - I flew MCI-LAS a few months ago on a 300 that had the new paint. I was kind of hoping to see what the new interiors were like, but this one still had the "old" configuration with the club seats...I thought they were painting and installing seats at the D check...has that changed?
