Thread: Northwest Airlines DC-10 fans, read this

  1. Default Northwest Airlines DC-10 fans, read this

    Richard Anderson, CEO of Northwest Airlines:

    ...announced that Northwest will be retiring the remainder of its 21 DC-10-40 aircraft by the end of September to save money. Most of those three-engine planes are being replaced by more efficient twin-engine Boeing 757-200s and 757-300s, he said.

    "We had intended on operating them a bit longer, but given the environment we thought it prudent to go ahead and retire those at the end of the summer season," he said.

    That's too bad, I like those "Heavy 10's"

    Alas, all is not lost! I got the same message in the employee newswire. However, the fleet of DC-10-30's will still be in service for a while longer...and the first A330-300 will arrive in early 2003...the first 757-300 arrives in July...so there will be new and interesting aircraft at NWA...plus some DC-10's for a few more years!

    That's good news. Any news on the 727s? They are retiring them as well, right?

    The last news I have heard is the 727's will be totally phased out of the NW fleet by the end of this year, being replaced by A319's, and A320's. However, 3 are used for NBA/NHL charters...not sure how thats going to work, but last I heard, there will be no scheduled flights with the 727 in NW fleet by the end of this year...thats subject to change though.
