Again, check to see if the 319's that are parked are leased. I don't believe NWA would park three and replace them with new ones.

MSP has a better maintenance facility for NW and therefore it would be cheaper to fly old planes that require more maintenance from a hub with a larger maintenance facility. Just my idea.
