Equipment changes are one of those things that I've learned to deal with after flying a lot. I've had happy times when I've gone from a 757 to a 767 and frustrated times when my 767 was turned into an MD-80 and my upgrade went poof. Last year I flew 88 segments and I had five equipment changes, so for me the chances seem to be about 6%.

Quoting Madairdrie (Reply 1): Why to your horror? I would have thought most people would have prefered the newer equipment. Just a thought.
I'd personally take a [not-so-]slowly-vanishing type over a bird that's going to be around for several more decades almost any day.
Quoting Dc10s4ever (Reply 2): Not me, love them three holers!!!! If I were you I would DEMAND some type of compensation from NW for the huge dissapointment!
I haven't read NW's DGR [Domestic General Rules] in a while, but most alrines specifically state in their Contract of Carriage or DGR that seat assignments and equipment types are not gaurnteed and are subject to change at any time for any reason. Unless you get a real sap of a res agent/CSR there's little chance of getting anything more than a few FF miles... if that.
