I am surpirzed that Northwest has the oldest average fleet. I would think that US Air or even American airlines would be older.


Northwest has a lot of OLD DC-9 airplanes making it the oldest average fleet age.

One of the reasons that USAir isn't doing well is because it has so many new planes. Virtually every USAir plane that isn't a 737 (or prop plane) is under 5 years old.


why would newer more fuel efficient planes bog USAirways down?
