Delta says (in their fleet plan) that the MD-90s will be around till 2006-7 when the owned a/c will be retired. So, at least 5-6 more years for the MD-90s. They are so sumptuously quiet to ride on that when I get a DL 737-800 by the wing, its almost unbearably loud! I think the MD-90 and 717 are still the two quietest jets in existence.
