I am glad they got some A320's and 757's, to place in their short route catagory . Even still can't Northwest use the newer MD-90's to replace their DC-9's . Their 727's are getting old . I think northwest needs another good long range plane like the767-300 or maybe 777 . The A340 is good two . According to my books it is the longest range passenger plane in the world.
