|Quoting Mawelsh (reply 14):|
Agreed. Northwest understands that most of the flying public doesn't know the difference between an "old" DC-9 and a "new" A319....and doesn't care. Why saddle yourself with debt when you own something that works?
|Quoting Jblake1 (reply 20):|
Questions about the DC9. I was flying through DTW on my way back from FLL and noticed that the starboard engine nozzle on the DC9 is always covered with more black soot than the port engine. Any particular reason for this?
|Quoting Lockheed1011 (reply 24):|
I think that is the same reason why the are keeping the DC-10's for a while.
|Quoting WGW2707 (reply 0):|
"...In January, the company said it would retire 10 DC-9s this year."
