Does anybody know when Northwest Airlines will start to retire there DC-9, DC-10, 727-200 and older 747 aircraft. Northwest Airlines has the oldest fleet of aircraft in the U.S or one of the oldest in the world probally.
Northwest Airlines does have over 80 aircraft on order from Boeing and Airbus. NWA has the 747-400, 757-200, a319 and a320 on order. But one thing I don't get is that they are going to get more old DC-10 aircraft from another airline. I don't see why Northwest Airlines wants to order older aircraft. If they want more DC-10 aircraft they should order new Boeing MD-11 aircraft and it will help save the MD-11.
I think Northwest Airlines should replace the DC-9 with the A318 and replace the 727-200 with the a319 and a320 aircraft, which is what they are probally already doing. I think they should replace there old DC-10 aircraft with new A330-300 or MD-11 aircraft. Some of the a319, a320, a330 and 757 aircraft Northwest Airlines has on order will replace there 727-200 and DC-9 and DC-10 aircraft but Northwest Airlines says they are going to keep some of there DC-10 aircraft. I think Northwest Airlines should be an all Airbus Fleet except for the 747-400 and MD-80.
Northwest Airlines currently has the 727-200, 747-100, 747-200, 747-400, 757-200, A319, A320, DC-9, DC-10 and MD-80 in it's fleet. I think Northwest Airlines could be one of the best airlines in the world but it's aircraft is just too old. I love Northwest Airlines livery too.
What do you think Northwest Airlines should do with it's aircraft espically with the DC-10.
