KLM-They've got MD11, B733, B734, F50, F70, F100.. all out of production.

FEDEX- MD10, MD11, A310, 727 (??)

Which are the other big operators of out of production planes?

I think probably AA:


A300's (almost)
767-200ER's (I think)
MD-80's
Saab 340

Everyone seems to forget AA's 153 757s. Out of production.

DL similarly has 121 752s, all of which are P&W powered. They will increase in number as they pick up many of the former TWA birds from AA.

FI has to be in there, with only one of their A/C, 767-300, still in production at Boeing (the rest are 757-200's).

Heck no... as long as the 767 line is open they are available for sale. And don't forget that the KC767 is based off of a 767-200ER so there is more to come off the line still.  Wink

That would make AA have over 450 aircraft in their fleet that are out of production.

Those occurred to me, but I couldn't recall whether the 757 line was still winding down. (I now see that it has -- nearly two years ago! Welcome to 2006, me.) In my haste to make a post about my most favorite-est plane ever before anyone else could, I failed to look up this fact. It'll never happen again.  boxedin

Yes, but those are just out-of-production variants of in-production models, and thus don't count.

I think it is safe to conclude that most USA carriers have fleets old enough now that they have most or at least part of their narrow-bodied air frames no longer in production. I failed to mention for DL the MD-88 and MD-90 which they have a vast fleet of, which hasn't been in production for some time now. These also represent the last air-frames with a Douglas aircraft heritage that was so dominant for so long with DL. They retired their 737-200s and 737-300s earlier this year.

FL has 87 x 717's. AA has twice that many (nearly) 757's alone let alone the 300 x MD-80's

AA contiues to have the largest "out of production" fleet (448 aircraft).  Smile
