As many of you know, for a while now NW has been operating single isle aircraft service (Airbus, and 757s) in Asia. What I am wondering is, do they have F/As based in NRT that work these flights? If so, Are these flight attendants usually recruted from Asian Countries as they are probably more aware of their values... etc? Or, do US based NW F/As fly in to NRT on trips and also work the single isle lines before returning? I can just imagine if that was the case how long the bev service would take with all the hand signals and trying to communicate! lol... Any info on this is greatly appriciated!

There are two USA based FAs on all NW flights beyond Japan including narrow body AC. One of the two is always the purser on the flight. The rest of the crew is Asian based. NW has FA crew based in most, if not all, of the Asian nations it serves. Most beyond Japan flights are crewed with a variety of nationalities. Crew on USA to Japan flights are USA based assisted by one Japan based interpreter.

Are the US based F/A's rotating in and out of Asia? What about the cockpit crews? How long are both spending there? It seems to be a long commute if you're just going to work a short time.--Hello to SEANWAS!
