These are average ages of the aircraft. Over the years the oldest ones have been retired. No even the youngest are getting worn out & averages / unit costs go up. . https://www.planespotters.net/airline/United-Airlines
Correct, UA is about to add more used airframes: 11 A319 from Easyjet and 7 B737-700 from Southwest (both having high utilisation for their fleet) on average age for each frame is 15 years old.Therefore will need quick replacment in next 5 years.
It was reported that we will not be putting those Easy jet planes into service.
