The 757 will need to be replaced urgently. The 737 can wait for another 2 years.

I agree with you on the 757. In my opinion small A/C like the 735 could stay for another 3-4 years. I usually replace them once they're between 5 and 6 years old.

But hey, isn't maintenance calculated from average fleet age?

I remember hearing that, but I don't think that is the case. I had 3x757-200 at 3 years and my mx skyrocketed from 10m-16m.
