I wonder which a/c NW will replace with the A319. As we know NW has
invested a lot of money to upgrade the flight systems and quiet the
engines of 173 DC-9 jets it is operating.

-Why would they upgrade the DC-9's and replace them 2 years later with
A319 ?
-Could noise restrictions be the reason ?
-I doubt that NW will replace the B727 (149 seats) with the A319 (125
seats), the A320 would be the better choice.
