I am confirmed on NW653 (connecting to NW223) on Friday June 25th... and since I booked this reservation (perhaps 2 months ago), the aircraft has changed so many times! I could understand one or two changes- but so many?? Whats the rationale behind it?
Original aircraft: A320
Switched to: B757
Switched to: A319
Switched to: D95
Aircraft at this point: D93
Pretty soon they'll have to switch it to a 747!

Personally, I would prefer the DC-9 to the 757 if not for the reason of having just two seats in each row on the left side of the aircraft. Other than that it really would not make much different to me.

HAHAHA........Asuflyer05 and Av8erphx.......you hit that one on the head...YV is notorios for their a/c swaps, it gets pretty ridiculous almost every day. Only at mesa could you swap a/c for a delayed flight 6 times throughout the day, and then cancel the flight at 11pm.........pretty sad.

I was on NW Flight #1667 from DTW to TVC last Thursday. The original aircraft for this flight was a DC9-10. After getting to the gate they changed it to a DC9-30. Once the plane got in from LAN it had a mechanical write up on it so they switched us to another gate and the plane was a DC9-50 that we boarded to TVC. So in a matter of 2 hrs they changed aircraft twice.
