Generally late-model (especially when applied to cars) means relatively new (as in the latest model).
I could certainly see United's 737-300 and -500 fleets being picked up by WN
for the short to medium term if the lease rates were right, especially if either were to attempt to fill the vacuum created by a hypothetical UAL liquidation (i.e. CO
, more WN
or back at SFO
, etc.). United's PW
-powered 757's would be a good fit for Delta, especially if Song is successful. If CO
, or NW
(or some permutation) were to take over the LHR
), Japan">NRT routes, I imagine that some of the 767's and 777's would be needed (and possibly some 747-400's in the case of NW
). I don't know if I see B6
's A320's though I can see at least some of them (or the A319's) ending up at HP
, or US.
