This is something new, saw a few interesting flights tonight and thought i share and get some feedback, considering there seems to be many dissapointed with NWA accelerating the retirement of thier Diesel 10's.

Does anyone have any information about the following flights:

NWA9849 EHAM-KEWR
NWA9988 KEWR-LEBL
ACA1998 CYYZ-EDDF (Didnt know Air Canada had DC10's)

Another question: How much longer will DC10s for NWA actually be in service?Will they keep them on the Hawaii routes longer?

If you see any rare or odd DC10 flights, please list them in this post, keep it goin!!!

AC doesn't have DC-10s - although I think there may have still been one CP DC-10-30 in service when they took over CP. That flight in question is a Gemini wet lease freighter.

That's an A330 now. For AMS only MSP and MEM are still with the DC10. Early 2007 they should both be with the A330, but I do not know precise dates.

This was a charter of some sort. KLM operates EWR-AMS. This was an actual NW DC-10 that was on the ground at EWR. I saw it there yesterday afternoon and was wondering why it was there. It left early this morning as a charter back to Barcelona. Does anyone know why these flights were operated?

All of the NW "Transatlantic" DC-10s will be gone by October 31st, 2006. From then on, all NWAs transatlantic flights will be flown by A330s.

After the above date, the only DC-10 flight remaining at NW will be MSP - HNL, but this will convert to an A330 from January 8th 2007.

After January 8th 2007, all of the NW DC-10s will be in the desert, or scrapped.

I am planning to fly MEM-AMS on standby at the end of this month to take my first (and probably last) DC10 flight.

The DC10 has become a rare aircraft, and after NW and BG, I can not think of any other current pax operators of the type... Anyone??

ATA is in advanced talks to acquire 10 (operate 9 and part out 1). Omni is to acquire some as well.

This would be http://www.omniairintl.com/ ? Can't say I really heard of them before. I see they already have DC-10s though, so makes sense.

I like the DC-10 myself. I thought it was a very unique design to have two wing-mounted engines with the third mounted at the base of the tail fin. That was awesome!! I just wish that bird could have evolved into something else...

The same thing with the T-tail aircraft. Given that this thread's title mentions "trijets fans," I will go ahead and state that my favorite T-tail aircraft was and still is the 727...

This has to be the one that flew in from EWR. It operated on Friday from AMS into EWR as 9849. It left early Sunday AM as 9988 to Barcelona, and then back to MSP as 9841. Anyone have any idea what kind of charters these were?

Yes, temporarily at least, but are planned to replace them completely.

How recent is this information? I heard this a few months ago and management then denied it. Not doubting you but just not sure this deal is still on the table.

The discussions have been on-going for several months. NWA has been the hold-up since they have more pressing matters (i.e. bankruptcy). As of yesterday, it IS still on the table. I am not at liberty to divulge anything further though.

Thanks for the update and I understand the need to be tight lipped. This would require ATA to recall lots (if not all) of their furloughed flight crew and that would be great!!
