I read at another web site that NW offered service from SNA to SMF, and a few other locations other than just MSP and DTW at one point. Is this even true? If so, when did this service begin, end, what type of equipment was used etc. Thanks for answers in advance.

WTF???? Where did you see that? There is nothing on the NWA worldtimetable about that. Is it possible that it was WN?

My reaction when I saw that as well.
Could have been. I saw it on one of the flyertalk forms. Maybe the author of the article put WN instead of NW. I'll find the link and post it on here.

HP does not have SNA-SMF service either. WN is the only airline with SNA-SMF non-stop service.

I remember when we had SNA-LAX A320 service but that was short lived

HP served the SNA-SMF route from 1991 until only a couple of years ago. They added this route when USAir pulled out of the West coast.

Um, what for? Was it a red-eye tag to MSP meant to beat the curfew?

Hughes Air West was likely the origional route operator at the time. They were bought by Republic which was then bought by Northwest. I know these routes did continue for a short time into the mid to late 80's. This is where NWA's Seattle presence began. All of the routes in the west gone now and codeshared with AS.

The equipment was no doubt DC-9's.

Focus City = Within "America's Heartland" Sorry Orange County but only in Hollywood.

NW does offer SNA/SMF . Via MSP

Unless I'm mistaken, you're off by a letter. NW used to have SAN-LAX A320 service, which was rather short lived. The A319 also operated this route for some time, as a tag on to the since-discontinued LAX-KIX route.

NW did use to operate SNA-SEA and PHX-SNA around the time of the Republic merger. In fact, an attempt to beat the SNA curfew was cited as a contributing factor of the NW255 crash in 1987, which was routed DTW-PHX-SNA. I don't believe they ever operated SNA-SMF.
