NW...look at their DC9s, many are in great condition despite their age.

What I'm kinda wondering is, what does their maintenance record have to do with the price of tea in China? Airlines' safety doesn't rest solely in the hands of good maintenance. Weather, pilot error, ATC error, and terrorism seem to be the main culprits in most (recent) incidents/accidents in any of those airlines' history - if, at all, those airlines did suffer any incidents.
What I'd be concerned about when faced with a choice of those airlines would be: reliability, service standard, convenience, pricing, equipment used (if you're a big plane nut and price is no issue!), etc. Not that maintenance shouldn't be considered at all, but to base your travel plans upon their maintenance record (considering they're all probably very good) would just lead you to a dead end - with the same four choices.
