While on a NW scarebus heading north yesterday, I was reading their December inflight mag. Toward the back, NW lists their fleet. They list 16 747-400 but only 7 747-200's. In October that was 17 747-200's. Are they planning to park 10 model 200's this month or is it a typo?

ALSO..They list 15 A330-200/300 models for December. I would assume this includes planes to be DELIVERED this month.

NO if the planes get scrapped i will hurt someone (probabely the scrapper)


If Continental had a hub at DFW with nonstop flights I would always fly them, unfortunantely good things take time.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that 742s are being retired from passenger service to be converted to freighters. I didn't think, however, that there would be 10 of them!

Yes? No?

Actually, they do currently have 15 A333/A332s flying in the fleet. Iv also heard that the next A330 delivery isn't until early next year.

Actually, the number 7 first showed up in the November issue as well.

NW's past SEC filings mentioned that 17 742s were on the books, but only 7 were used in operations. So the rest are parked, and the numbers were lowered in WorldTraveler magazine to reflect that. No typo.

Most likely for the fact that there are fees for officially retiring an airplane.

There are only supposed to be 2 at the present, 6631, and 6634. I think that most of the others will become parts donors for the 747F's and remaining pax aircraft.
