Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 6): Everyone seems to forget AA's 153 757s. 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.

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.
