I see from the schedules that this aircraft will be flying the MSP-PDX-MSP run for a few days for crew training.

That seems to be the plan from what I understand. The A330-200s greater range is needed for the longer trans-Pacific flights, the -300's range is fine for trans-Atlantic.

The A330 sure looks sharp in NW's new colors!

cheers, Ralph

Does anyone know for sure if the SFO-NRT flight will still switch from a DC-10 to A330 on September 1st as planned?

I sure hope SFO-NRT will switch at least by Christmas b/c I'm booked on a rt and it says that our plane is the A332.

No, PDX will become the first A330-200 Trans-Pac route, but SFO-NRT will be changeover on Oct. 1

A330-200 schedule for 2004:
1 NRT-ICN (began Aug 1)
2 PDX-NRT (begins Sept 1)
3 SFO-NRT (begins Oct 1)
4 NRT-PEK (begins Oct 2)
5 SEA-NRT (begins Nov 1)
6 NRT-BKK (begins Nov 2)
7 NRT-SIN (begins Dec 1)

This keeps a spare aircraft into the rotation, as the full Dec schedule can be flown with 6 planes, leaving the 7th as a spare.

Must be a bit of a delay. I thought I read in some previous thread that NW was supposed to start the A330 on Sept. 1. Oh well, I'll keep the camera at home for another month.

Yes, SFO was to start on Sept. 1, and PDX on Oct. 1, but NW decided to flip-flop the two for a variety of reasons.

There will be no spares lying around according to the above schedule. Once an aircraft is delivered, albeit for some crew familiarization flights, it will go immediately into Asian services. When the 8th aircraft is delivered it may be spare.

Seeing the NRT-BKK run go to a 332 is quite a shock because a 744 has been on that run for years and loads are good. Perhaps they want to increase yield.
Well, ANA just announced an additional flight on the NRT-BKK leg, so the capacity loss can be absorbed.

When a 332 is due for periodic rest, what will replace it. A DC-10? Not sure if they will be flying to NRT after all the 332s are placed on the NRT runs. Then again, there is usually an old 742 lying around NRT.

Any idea if the A330 will make the Guam-Narita run. Or the Saipan-Narita run. Right now I think they use a 747-200..
