Which Will Last Longer: AA's F100s Or DL's 727s?

Mon Oct 22, 2001 4:29 am

I am taking a business trip next month, and have to choose between AA and DL; I would like to ride the aircraft that is going to be retired first, just in case I do not get another change. Which do you think will survive longest: AA’s Fokker 100s or DL’s Boeing 727s?

From the way AA talks about how great the F-100 is, it willdefinitely be around longer than any 727. Fly the old three-holer now and do not miss out on a great opportunity to fly on the best plane.

Yeah the F-100 will stay much longer. They are pretty nice.

All this speculation of AA retiring their Fokker's are pure rumors. I would go with the 727.

Fly the Boeing 727-200, if you have the chance, they will leave the fleet first. A window seat behind the wing will provide a view of the slotted flaps on take off and landing.
