Jesus stated that the time when he returns will be similar to the time before the flood. Can we conclude from Jesus' statement that men could also commonly live to be 900 years old?

Matthew 24:36-39 "But concerning that day and hour no one knows—not even the angels of heaven nor the Son—except the Father alone. For just as the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For as in the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered into the ark. And they did not know anything until the deluge came and swept them all away. So also the coming of the Son of Man will be.

Human age was not one of the suggestions mentioned when referring to what people would be like in the time of Jesus' return.

The disciples asked about the signs just before his return. Not about age.
