Hey NewSwissair,

I guess that the times of the B707, DC8 and B727 are almost finished, they become also withdrawn from the cargo operators (like DHL is replacing the B727 with B757,...).

Tu-154: only Russian, Bulgarian and some other airlines will fly this type of aircrafts within Europe (but if these aircrafts stay crashing like they did the last year, I hope there will be enough Tu-154's to see them still untill the end of the year  Big grin )

B737: I guess you mean the B732: only Ryanair has still a big fleet of a/c like this in Europe, and are replacing them with the B738 NG, so I am afraid that also this aircraft will dissapear soon (I am not happy with that, because I like the engine sounds of the B737-200 a lot)

The point is most of the older planes in Europe are hush-kitted, which will allow them to fly our skies till 2005, when Ch 4 regulations will be introduced. The ones we probably won't see anymore are a bunch of older Russian jets (IL-86 and -76 and Tu-134). They say there are enough hush-kitted Tu-154Ms around in Russia to pretty much cover all their European flights (at least the regular ones). Russian charter airlines will have to think of something there, cause they are not equipped for the modern times.
