I was looking at the following picture and it said that it was from Malaysia Airlines. Are they buying more?

I know that, but, I mean, is that a newer one that will op until the 330s & 753s come, replacing the really old ones?

All the DC-10-40's will be gone by September 3rd...

The -30's like this one will be around for only international ops and slowly phased out as the A330's come in.

Don't forget the -30s will be serving HNL when the -40s go. Apparantly 1 each daily SEA/LAX/MSP-HNL.
