Pretty much any route that sees a DC-9... just have to look around.

I think the -30 and -40 are interchanged in usage on a lot of the routes. NW denotes both the -30 and -40 as "D9S" and the -50 as "D95".

I thought the DC9-40 was D94.

While many people on these message boards and such just use D94, which I think is a smarter way also, NW still uses D9S for the -30 and the -40. Don't ask me why, that's just what they do!!

I flew NW 648 DTW - EWR on April 6th - it was operated by a DC9-40.

I see them quite frequently in ATL...don't always know where they're going, but ATL is a common destination.

Because they are practically the same plane. The -40 has only 10 more seats than the -30, and since NW has such a small fleet of -40s, they are just integrated into the -30 inventory.



Next flight: GRR-ORD-PDX-SEA-ORD-GRR

MSP-PIT I believe, or are those DC-9 30s? Or are they both? I know that they fly DC-9 aircraft on that route... I think that DTW and Memphis (to PIT) are run by Pinnacle or Meseba or whichever express carrier that they use on those routes...

Yeah, the DC9-30/40/50 is interchangeable much like the ERJ-135/140/145 for AE. Sure, they might show ER3, ERD, ERJ, on the schedule, but they'll substitute them usually without any conflict.

Wasn't D9S the way DC9-30 and DC9-40 aircraft were designated in the old OAGs?

Years ago, NW made the decision to "consolidate" their small DC9-40 fleet into the DC9-30 inventory and both types use the D9S code - thus, the DC9-40 can show up on any route shown as operated by a D9S. Its not even a supply/demand thing or a seat inventory thing, as far as I know, the handful of extra seats on the DC9-40s are simply not sold or accounted for in the NW rez system.......the seats are used in the event of an overbooking or standbys, etc if a DC9-40 (instead of a DC9-30) happens to show up at the gate to operate a flight.

DC9=-10/20
D9S=-30/40/50

More typcially: DC9 = DC9-10/20; D9S = DC9-30/40; D95 = DC9-50

Don't always count on the DC-9-40 if your "scheduled" if the flight isnt full enough and they could use those 10 extra seats for someplace else NW will switch out DC-9's all the time, including -50's. No DC-9's are really sure bets on any routes.
