Orders in place at that time.
Your company has grown just a tad in 30 years I would say!

After initial orders for the Boeing 757, the commercial success of Boeing 757-sales was relatively disappointing. Early customers received their 757s and continued to receive them, while some Asian companies as well as European charter operators opted to take the Boeing 757. In some important tenders, the Boeing 757 lost - mainly because the Boeing 757 was seen as too large to be used economically.
The number of deliveries sharply increased, after American and United ordered large numbers of Boeing 757s and an attractive number of additional sales were made.

Until the end of 1987, the following customers introduced the MD-80:
AirSur, Aviaco, BIA, China Eastern Airlines (CAAC), Delta Air Lines, LAC, Minerve, Paramount Airways, Spantax, Transwede
Austrian Airlines and Finnair introduced their first MD-87s and Iberia made huge headlines in December 1987 with a long awaited fleet-renewal order, including a decision to order 15 Airbus A320s, 17 McDonnell Douglas MD-87s and eight Airbus A340s.

SheikhDjibouti wrote:It's your thread, so apart from the ambiguous title, you can set your own criteria.
Since your opening post, where you listed every major US airline, we've had Air Canada, Pacific Western, Aero Lloyd (from Germany??) and now AeroMexico & Mexicana.
Not surprisingly, I'm a little confused, and clearly I'm not the only one.
Are we only considering US airlines?
Are you including Canada, because it's a big part of North America.
Are you including Mexico, because it isn't.....
Just asking, because FWIW Aurigny's fleet has changed quite a bit since '87; for a start they are no longer operating the Trislander

The even older guard comprised Northwest's CV-580s and DC-9-10s - are you sure about both those types, in '87?
