Alaska Airlines stopped flying 727s a few years ago. You can check fates of all individual Alaska Airlines 727s on website http://people.a2000.nl/sverb (and search for "Alaska"). Many of their last ones ended up with American Trans Air, just like N290AS

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

AS's last 727 flight was in September of 1994. The aircraft was a B727-100F Tail number N753AS. The flight was from SEA to ANC and then back to SEA. I was on the ground crew that turned the aircraft at ANC.

I belive that the last passenger flight was in April of the same year but don't hold me to that.

Alaska 727's were retired around 1993, they were just too expensive to maintain. I flew in an AS 727 one time in 1992. They were great planes.
