Just asking. I'm curious, as some airlines will let theirs get to 20 while others, like me, try to replace them before that.

Ideally, I'd go for 10 to keep it young, but I often extend the leases instead of taking the time to replace them and it ends up being 12-14.

I get antsy around 7-8 years. I aim for ~10 years for making replacements.

20 years as it's more common practice.

Between 15-20 years is when I begin replacing them.


AE is the best.

@Le Pastiche: I think I need to try that on my current play-throughs. Be patient with replacing my A320s until the NEOs come out.

There needs to be an easier way to replace older planes, like if you have 50 planes that need to be replaced ouf..

Depends on the type, usually between 10 and 30. Sometimes it's between 5-10.

Well I've currently got a fleet of 25 A320s ordered around 1993, my server is currently in early 1996. I think I'll probably replace around a quarter or so of my A320s with 737-800s when they're available and wait a couple years, probably like 2 or 3 and replace a few more A320s with brand new ones unless I find I make way more with the 737-800.

It's an American based airline, so I think it's of great importance when to buy American when possible. But for the 90s I really don't see how the 737 Classics could beat the A320s.

 

I also have A319s and A321s on order I figure I will supplement future A319 orders with 737-700 orders I get to wait a little longer on the A321s lol since the 737-900 and ER versions aren't out for awhile lol

Wished my game didnt end in 2015, because I'd love to get the C-Series now the A220 in service but I don't think that'll be exactly a great idea lol

In shorter worlds, around 15 years. In R1, I'm thinking 20-30 years.

Sometimes a competitor turns a sparking average 6 year fleet into obsolescent flying tin cans.

On the other side there are planes that are unreplaceable
