  1. Im gonna cry I loved this plane. It was my favorite plane. It retired too soon!!!.DONT SCRAP IT.;( im gonnna cry. The Plane ive been on since 1993.Its so sad that this plane was retired. Goodbye MD 80 ToT

  2. I flew on an MD-80 S80 when I went from Nashville to New York (and back) January 16 and 18, 2010, and I think it was also an MD-80 S80 on January 15 and 17, 2011 as well (same trip). The first flight was my first ever time on a plane. I remember one of the planes I rode on was built in 1988, in service to at least 2010… I'd have to look it up to see what plane it was. I know it's no longer flying now, at least with AA.
