Hi folks. I just joined anet today and this is my first thread. My wife and I are flying SFO-DTW (NW 342) followed by DTW-CDG (NW 50). I've flown many many miles on UA, LH, and AA, but this will be my first trip on Northwest in more than a decade. I'm looking forward to seeing how there international service stacks up compared to the other carriers. I'm also looking forward to checking out the A333.

I'm a little nervous about the less than 1 hour connection at DTW given the recent weather conditions in the East. How is the Northwest terminal at DTW for making domestic to international connections?

Piece of cake all in the same terminal, easy to wak or take the tram, and all inside of security so no worries.

I have only been on one wide body aircraft, the DC-10. And I've never been on a international flight, but I know the A330 is a very safe aircraft.


It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

I have no fear at all of the A330....I'm very much looking forward to checking it out. I have a much greater fear of the long domestic segment on NW from SFO-DTW. Somehow I feel like the SFO-DTW segment on the 757 will be more tiring than the DTW-CDG segment on the 330.

I will be taking a NW A332 from AMS-MEM in May. Nothing to worry about, safe aircraft. The cabins are nice with the PTV's but the take-off does not compare to that of a DC-10. Then again, DC-10/MD-11 rocket take-offs are in a league of their own.

If your flight arrives on time you should have enough time to connect.



There's nothing quite like a tri-jet.

If you've flown many many miles on UA/LH and made connections at ORD, you'll love DTW (especially if you connect between express and mainline service).

No promises about the weather, but NW and DTW can handle winter weather a lot better than UA and ORD.

With the brand new A330's on the Trans-Atlantic fleet, NW offers a product very much on par, if not slightly better than AA/UA's Trans-Atlantic service.

Not sure if you are in coach or World Business Class (WBC). I mostly flown in WBC across the pond on NWA but I can comment on coach too.

Assuming you are in coach, since you didn't say otherwise.
SFO-DTW on a 752, will be nothing special. No meal service in coach other than buy-on-board. It is your standard NWA domestic flight

DTW-CDG is an A330-300, that has PTV's in every seat. You will get a dinner service in coach and drinks are free across the Atlantic. It is a very nice ride on a very new plane. Much better than AA's 767's service, very much comparable to their 777 service.
