I'm not sure what the fate of the Douglas twin jets will eventually be,
but apparently a lot of maintenance folks at SAS are furious at their
decision to purchase the 737 family.  They can practically build DC-9s
and MD-80s from scratch at their maintenance base in Oslo.  They have
full overhaul and parts fabrication facilites for the DC-9/MD series.

No matter what kind of airplanes it is, there is something to be said
for fleet commonality...
