Tomorrow NWA begins service between PDX and NRT. The flight is on a DC-10. The first arrival from NRT is on 6/11. The first departure to NRT is on 6/10. My question is how does the DC-10 get to PDX if it isn't coming from NRT. Where does the plane come from and what time will it arrive? I hope someone out there knows this information.

It is not going as a sub for a regular flight, I know that. I bet it will come as a shuttle flight from SEA, I would say either late tonight to early am it will come ( 12 midnight- 6 am)

Thats cool and Im glad you asked this question. I would of never thought of it coming from SEA. I would of guessed it to come from MSP. But it kinda makes since to come from SEA.

OK SEA makes sense and so does using the DC10 that arrives SEA around 0600 from OGG to go down to PDX for the 1st flight to NRT. So my guess is this DC10 will make it's way down to PDX from SEA between 0700-1100am.

So where does the 753 that is replacing the DC10 on the SEA-OGG route come from?

Surely this route will be primarily for leisure passengers and so yields will be quite low? What about cargo?

Pe@rson: I think it will be the other way around. There's a lot of businesses in Oregon and SW Washington that used the DL flight, and will use this one once it starts. While businesses have strong ties to Europe, hence the LH flight, their ties to Asia are even stronger.

True, there will be leisure pax, but I would say predominately business. Cargo should do well also. NW, from my understanding, wants at least 20% cargo on each int'l. flight...a NW person can confirm that.

My question is how does the DC-10 get to PDX if it isn't coming from NRT.

Just a wild guess here, but I'm thinking it's going to fly.  Big thumbs up

Airlines are often "Ferry" their a/c from one station to another without any passengers. This usually is done by using weird flight #, such as 8595 etc.. They do not necessarily have to have passengers in order to fly the a/c.

How do you think new A330 a/c get to MSP from France? The same principle applies.

Has NW ever served KUL or CGK? If so, when and was it non-stop or direct?

NW served KUL prior to the Asia Economy crisis for a couple of year. Also it had planned to serve CGK but it never did fly to CGK although tickets were already sold to the destination. I believe they rerouted those who bought the CGK tickets onto GA's flights.

KUL was served out of KIX.

Ah thanks, SEA. Do you know the frequency, the loads, yields and profits (if any)? What about cargo on the route?

It will come from SEA. It leaves OGG tonight at 2045 arrives SEA at 0515 on the morning of the 10th. It will be cleaned and offloaded then flown down to PDX for the 1350 flight to NRT. So I assume it would leave SEA by 0700 and arrive PDX by 0745, give or take a few minutes. Of course actual NWA employees would know the answer to this one.

I hope the weather is better in PDX than it is here in SEA. Thick, ugly drizzle and low ceilings.

was it a new color bird? I was hoping for decent WX @ SEA this morning but it didn't happen.

ClickHappy..I was able to witness the arrival flight from Seattle and the DC-10 is painted in the new color scheme...It looks really great parked on D-15 at the end of concourse D..Runway 28 right was very busy this morning for some strange reason. I wonder if they are doing construction on one of the taxiways on the southside...I sure hope this Tokyo flight will be a sucess for Northwest and Portland...
