Are you sure it is for the whole month? We had been getting the -300 but had the -200 for a few weeks in May. July is peak season so I am highly suspicious that they are doing it for load reasons. We could fill a 747 out of BOS in the summer!

333 to 332... Not that shocking, right? Maybe that bigger jet is being used on a better performing route?
From what I've heard NW has been doing quite well on BOS-AMS (this was actually their first AMS route before the KLM/NW joint venture) so I'm also surprised to learn of them downsizing in the busy summer season.

Its basically to cover for scheduled maintenance checks on the A330-300s. They have been rotating -300s into SIN where major checks are performed, via SEA-NRT-SIN routing in the place of -200s on Flt 7. MSP also sees occaisional -200s for the same reason. Both passenger and freight loads are very strong out of BOS.
