Was driving home today around 4:30 local time & noticed NW 57 coming in from AMS in the A330. I didn't realize that NW had changed from the DC-10. Flight Aware shows the A333 being used since Feb 15th.

I saw the ams A330 this past tuesday (2/21). I had a brain fart and forgot NW flew AMS-MEM, and thought maybe it was a substitution for some other flight. Didn't realize what it was doing there until I was gone. Still nice to see though.

When are the DC-10s scheduled to be completely phased out? I think I remember hearing that the last route to be switched will be MSP-HNL, but I can't find a date yet that shows an A330. Also, does the A333 have the legs for that route, or will it be an A332?

Arn't their supposed to be about 6 more A333 deliveries this year? when are they comming? I cant wait untill MSP-LGW becomes an A333....even though it will be for about a month this spring, then the DC-10 comes back for the summer. whats the deal with that anyway, why cant it just stay an A330 for good. I know lots of brits in the MSP area who are sick of the old DC-10. Also I searched nwa.com and found that MSP-LGW is still up and running for next winter, who thinks it could get cut again?
All flights have great IFE...get yourself a window seat, thats something no PTV can beat! flew 808 Pacific an Atlanic

The A330 apparently made its last trip into Memphis yesterday for this stint. Flights 57/58 don't currently operate on Mondays, and for some reason they don't appear to be operating on Tuesday, 2/28, either. Starting Wednesday the flights will be operated with a DC-10.
