A little farther ahead in the future, the A330-300 will be on the MSP-AMS route, as I was looking at flights on expedia.com for February, and it's in the schedules as (I believe, but don't quote me on it) flights 41 and 42.

Currently the Northwest schedules have A333 service starting the MSP-AMS route on October 31st, 2005. This is still quite far out, however, so we'll have to see if this aircraft stays in the schedules as the date closes in.

Hey...Thanks for the information. But more specifically I was looking for information regarding timeline of deliveries for this year...and then into the future. I know we added 8 more A330's as a replacement for the DC-10, but I was under the impression that these extra 8 a/c would be delivered in addition to our other aircraft.
Also, last year every Europe flight was an A330 out of DTW (with the exception of sporadic LGW A330 service as the A330-200's came on board). I can understand when they added the 5th daily DTW-AMS (35/36) that this would be a DC-10. But I was wondering why FCO and LGW are DC-10's and when will they go back to being A330. Does this have to do with BOS having the A330? SEA? Anymore information is appreciated...
For the peak summer of 2005, A330-300 operations will be:
4 daily DTW-AMS
1 daily DTW-CDG
1 daily DTW-FRA
1 daily DTW-FCO
1 daily SEA-AMS
DC10 European operations will be
1 daily DTW-AMS
1 daily DTW-LGW
1 daily MSP-LGW
3 daily MSP-AMS
1 daily MEM-AMS
1 daily BOS-AMS
1 daily AMS-BOM
In the Fall, when DTW-FCO ceases. A330-300s will commence daily AMS-BLR
(Bangalore), and may well migrate back to DTW-LGW and/or BOS-AMS as well as perhaps one daily MSP-AMS rotation. Even though MSP-AMS does show one A330 MSP-AMS right now, this could well change. AMS-BOM will remain a DC10 operation for this Fall/Winter (and will become twice daily again seasonally). No idea when it will transition to the A330.
