    American Airlines Inc. has a fleet of aging airplanes and a hard decision to make.

    Every day it flies an aging McDonnell Douglas MD-80 is another day that it burns 20 percent to 30 percent more fuel than it would use with today’s replacement airplane, the Boeing 737-800.

    “There’s no question, from a purely operational point of view, American should be replacing those airplanes – fuel emissions, noise, maintenance,” said aviation consultant Scott Hamilton, who focuses on aircraft manufacturers Boeing Co. and Airbus.
