Just as with cars, in general, the newer the aeroplane the more fuel efficient it is. 

Look for information on fuel per passenger for guidance. However also similar to cars, the impact of manufacturing the plane in the first place also needs to be borne in mind and older fleets are spreading the impact over a longer overall flight distance.

We lack data on the comparative impact of plane manufacture and use to make the judgement as to which is the best choice.

The growth in flights is far outstripping the increase in efficiency so we still need to cut down on flying.
