Unless you count the MD-80, as discussed earlier. American has a bunch of those and happens to have their largest hub at DFW.

OY
And while the DC-9 and 727 were both 1960s designs, it's kind of amazing that the DC-9 remained in service for over a decade after most 727s were retired. Douglas planes had a reputation for being pretty much indestructible.

The most dated plane I can recall flying in was a United Boeing 737-300, before they retired them a few years ago. That cabin was a time warp back to the 1980s.
