Future Airline Fleet Plans...

Mon Aug 20, 2001 1:06 am

What do you lot think about the Major US carries future fleet plans??? All the commonality??? I'm not very happy that all the airlines are going to be almost exactly alike. AA and DL are going to own the exact same planes. All the fleets in the future will feature all "wing engined" planes (except for NWA DC-9's). All the MD-80's will be gone as with the MD-90's, 727's (thats understandable), DC-9's, and maybe the 717. I wish one of the majors (NWA inparticular) would make a big order for the 717. I'm just not looking foward to all the fleets compromised of 737's, 757's, 767's, 777's, and Airbus aircraft.

What do you think??????
