Why so many airlines claim that their particular fleet is the "youngest" or "most modern" of the world??? To cite some, Mexicana, Taca among others??
How can they claim something if its possibly not true?? Isn´t that illegal?
Thanks for your answers.

Basucally they do that for Advertisding purposes fro the average public if you feel that you would fly on a "new" plane or a "modern" fleet will make you feel more 2secure2 so mpost of the people here in a.net can claim that is not true of at least that it's not "completely" true. But for average joe they will feel more secure, and on other hands don'0t forget that usually the "modren" words has some type of atractive to people, like when a car manufacturer says that it's product it's the most modern at the time, same aplies for aircraft and passengers.
Just put me on any modern airliner and i will be happy, give me more star alliance miles and i will be a lot more happy.

Quoting MD90fan (Reply 4): B6, FL, F9, SQ, Air Deccan, I would like to say WN because of the vast numbers of 73G's, and WJ,FR when the last 732's are gone. JetStar and Air Arabia are some of my guesses.
Not Air Deccan,as their Aircraft are mostly leased & older.In Fact Kingfisher has a very young Fleet of A320s.

Unless you're SQ, I think it's hard for any airline with a really large fleet to have a young fleet age without spending a huge amount of capital to constantly replace your aircraft. For example, think about AA with 300+ MD-80s. It's hard to fathom how much they would have to spend to replace all of them.
CO comes to mind as an airline whose fleet is pretty new across the board for an airline of their size.
