I recently booked tickets via expedia.de for next summer´s holiday on Hawaii. We will be flying AMS - SEA - OGG on NW 33 and NW 95. As far as I know, NW 33 will be on A 333 whereas NW 95 will be on B 753. What I find strange is, that on expedia´s homepage it says "no food" for both flights. Does anybody know if ths is true? I mean, NW 33 is a 10 hour flight, so no food would be quite hard... Also, what is to be expected service-wise? I heard different opinions about NW, from excellent to catastrophic. Has anybody anything to share? How are NW´s A 333 and B753?
Another thing I was wondering is about our return trip. We will be on NW 95 to SEA. As far as I know, this flight goes OGG - KOA - SEA. Our tickets are issued for OGG - SEA. Does anybody know if it´s possible to check in for this flight at KOA? This would be very convenient for us, as we will spend the last week of our holiday on Bis Island. Or will we be traeted as no-shows?
Any info is highly appreciated!

First of all you cannot just skip to OGG-KOA sector. You would be a no show for this part, and the entire ticket would be cancelled, so you would probably pay some fees to get home if you tried that. Don't try it.
Second, there should be food on both flights. I think Expedia just messed up on not listing meals. But that shouldn't be a problem. The new birds at NWA are really nice. SEA-AMS switches to an A333 at the beginning of next summer, so it will be a good flight with IFE. The only bad thing about your trip will be the long layover in SEA. SEA is a nice airport overall, but not one to spend that much time in. I would suggest taking a taxi or shuttle up to the waterfront or downtown Seattle for a few hours and having some really good food, since it isn't that far, and the summer mornings are nice.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
