Keep 'em. It wouldn't exactly be the first time an airline operated both types.

Any word on whether the DC9's will go to NW, or into retirement?

I thought Cebu was making a deal with Jetstar to take over their 717 fleet, while Jetstar continues recieving new A32Xs.

Anyone else remember this?

I know that NW collects antiques, but given that Cebu is retiring them because there are Major due on them, it would be wise of NW to either pass on them or Part them out.

Its going to be 12 A319's

but if IM not mistaken they are also taking 3 A320's

so maybe not sure 9 A319's and 3 A320's.

maybe somebody can enlighten us.

the article above mentions 12 A319's but im sure thats not right.

Finally the decision was made, I thought it would have been announced at Farnborough.

Still was hoping for the 717.  Crying Well I love the A32X family as well.  Big thumbs up

What about NW, probably for parts as I understand that they are close to a Major, (which is part of the reason that Cebu retired them).
