727-100 In Service?

Sun Oct 28, 2001 2:48 pm

Can anyone take a rough guess about how many airlines still have 727-100s and about how many 727-100s are still flying?

288 727-100 still in service in various countries & freight express companies. This is a pretty good count considering only 572 were built. The 727s were built to last.  Wink/being sarcastic Regards.

United_Fan I don't think DHL, nor FedEX have any -100s. Here in Canada First Air still has 2 or 3 of them in a passenger/cargo combi configuration

Haha Airmale, that 721 is probably rubble by now. Don't you love this 721 pic?


Here's a list of all 727s if you want to browse through it.

Aerocontinente in Peru might also have 727-100s still carrying pax. Iran Air also run some 727-100s in pax config.

LAB and Iran Air were original customers for the 727-100, so some of these jets have served their whole life with one airline.

Thank you Aerokid! Your post pretty much puts this thread to rest!

It’s interesting that just four airlines own over 50% of 727-100s and the bulk of those are right under my nose. At least I assume that most FedEx and UPS birds would be in the US… true, false?

Why are some 727's listed as 727-23 or a 727-51??
These types don't say "727-123" or refer to the -100 at all. Why was this numbering done this way by Boeing Company? Anybody know?

No other Boeing type 100 has this 2-digit numbering sysytem....

Here is just a sample of SOME of the US registered 727-100s

FedEx has 51 operating 727-0xxFs (various 020s and 100s)
DHL: 10
Emery: 22
Northern Air Cargo: 3
Ryan International: 5
UPS: 51 strong fleet of re-engined 727-0xx/100s with Rolls Royce Tays.

So, there are lots of -100s still out there, your best bet is to see them hauling cargo. I see them every time I go anywhere, you cant miss the DHL, FedEx and UPS haulers as well as the USPS planes which mostly belong to Emery I believe.
