Thanks everyone! Big grin

Not quite that old yet, but getting there. Combining the 744's with the 742's they are 19.8 years old on average.

Yeah you can look at fleets but when you want to get into specifics then you must pay.

Wow! Are these the oldest birds in the sky? (For the 747-400s?)

Is the the age that they have had them or the age sense they were produced and delieverd?

Thanks ORDRyan and Trijets so much for your information!

Yes they are new deliveries, ranging from 1994-2003.

Eight of the 744's were delivered in 1989-90. Several are the oldest 744's in service. NW was also the launch customer of the type.

Like I said above. Very young aircraft. About how long till careers start to retire them?
