Quoting FlySSC (Reply 4): Could you please cite a major airline still operating a DC3 ?
Let me see.
KLM has one (PH-ALR), CSA has one (OK-XDM), SAS has one (SE-CFP of Flygande Veteraner), Icelandair has one (TF-NPK), Air Atlantic has one (G-AMRA), Finnair has one (OH-LCH of Airveteran),...
Pretty much major all this.
Ok, still kidding
Yea, Delta annouced they were trying to get rid of their 762s, selling 11 of them (they only had around 13-14 to begin with from what I've read). They were supposed to totally get rid of them by December this year.

AS will is in the process of phasing out thier 732 combi's of which I believe there are 9 used for passenger/cargo service to rural Alaska. They will be replaced with 734s that are converted into the combi role. That is one less airlines that will be flying that model.

I don't thnik DL will be getting rid of the MD80's by 2010. The last I've heard is to start retiring them in 2012. they will most likely be replaced with a mix of 738 or 737-700 and a 100 pax aircraft.

AC will not be getting rid of the 762's for quite a while as the piolits said no to new planes. I was looking forward to the new planes. So expect to see the Gimli Glider flying in 2010. The 762's are possibly the oldest plane in the fleet
