"On a 3-month-old plane"

Years ago I flew Edinburgh to Heathrow on a British Midland 737. During flight the cabin became uncomforatbly warm for a bit but when it goit a bit cooler the captain came on the intercom to apologize for the temperature fluctauation adding that "this is a new plane and we've been having a number of teething problems with it". 2 or 3 weeks later one of British Midland's new 737's crashed at Kegworth.
