True...Their planes take a beating from flying spoiled crew that can't afford anything more over Cuba/Dominican. That's also why they give you odd ball flight to Vancouver because they utulize their fleet to the maximum, so get you stuck with a oddball flight.
We have some old planes in my old country, such as old 737. This one is from 1985, and it was the first 737-300 in Europe. You can see what it looks now, video clip taken a few days ago. It has new engines and interiour.
And here is the picture back in the summer of 1985 when they got it.
