The ENT-E has many more years left on its clock which is the point since it was just out of drydock with upgrades then it was sent to investigate a starbase...
In the case of the Enterprise-A, the most common theory is that the Khitomer Accords called for a reduction of military forces in both the KDF and the Federation. The Constitution-class ships, being some of the older ships in service, were probably hacked away at first as a result to make room for the newer Excelsior-class ships.

That's just a theory though.
