Well as of right now, DTW-HNL is seasonal. Will it go year-round? Who knows. As for a DC10 replacement? Most likely we'll just use the A330. A total of 7 DC10's will be allocated for the US Mainland-HNL market until 2008. But who knows, we could have the 7E7 by that time.

Welcome to Airliners.net NorthwestEWR!
Good question. All of the other flights that are MSP-HNL have a stop in SEA or some other west coast city. I'm on the 753 SEA-OGG in March. Obviously the 753 cant make MSP-HNL. I don't think there will be anymore n/s MSP-HNL after the DC-10's leave. Who knows they might put an A330 there!!

Unless some new aircraft is ordered, it would likely be the A330 by default. I doubt that they will have any 742s around by then (except in cargo) and the 744s will likely be dedicated to the higher revenue Asian routes. Anyone know when the last time they operated a 747 on the MSP-HNL run was? I did it once, but that was back in 1992.

Chatting with the Senior FA on flight from SEA to HNL last year, she told me that NW will replace the DC-10-30 with A330s, but the European routes get dibs on the new planes. As those get filled, the 10s serving other routes will be retired, and replaced by the A330s.
On the MAX system in PDX, they are advertising A330 service between NRT and PDX beginning this fall (I guess that's right now).
The only route that the A330 would serve, from the mainland would be from MSP. DTW as mentioned is seasonal. SEA, PDX, and LAX will use 753s.
Do you NW guys know if the A330 will replace the 10 for the KIX-HNL route?

I'm travelling on NW from SEA-HNL late April 2005 and from HNL-PDX 10 days later. My travel itinerary shows DC10 on SEA-HNL & 753 on HNL-PDX. I would prefer DC10 or A330 on the PDX flight. Any chance of a change of type for the summer schedule?

Burnsie28...What are you talking about man..That service has not even begun! You must be one of the PDX basher who continue to make statements without the facts....I don't think Northwest would have even announced this new service without doing their homework..There is al ot of demand for this flight and NWA is taking advantage of it......
