Beijing's code is PEK, standing for its former name, Peking.

NW stated that its first 787 route will be DTW-JFK-NRT-JFK-DTW in 2008.

Though they have not announced anything further yet, I predict more point to points in Europe and Asia. NW is the only airline today to still have a strict hub based route structure. This concept died off in the 80s, but NW held on to it, just like the DC-9s. (aren't people sick of always having to go through DTW, MSP, AMS, and NRT?)

18 aircraft ~ 9 daily long-haul routes

JFK-NRT
LAX-HKG
LAX-PVG
SFO-HKG
SFO-PVG
LAX-AMS
LAX-FRA
SFO-AMS
SFO-FRA

If anything, Continental's route structure is more hub-based than NW's. I can think of very few, if any, Continental flights outside their hub structure. Northwest at least has Asia service from PDX, SEA, and LAX, and will soon have transatlantic service from Hartford. Plenty of new hubs were created in the 1980s so the concept was far from dying by then.

Very true. Bit by bit we're getting away from the 3 hub concept, with IND being a focus city, growing little by little. I wish we would do it in the west.

I will post mine....

JFK-NRT (Already stated by NW)
BOS-BOM (
MSP-NGO (I want this one...it was rumored that NW might turn it into a mini-hub like KIX was in the 1990s)
DTW-HKG (But this could be a 744)
SEA-MNL (US-Manila non-stop first. But as JetJack says...HNL-MNL might do better)
MEM-NRT (Hub-Hub)
DTW-ICN (Skyteam-Skyteam)
SEA-BOM (IT)
SEA-SYD (heck they have to go back someday)


If NW gets a non-stop option to China it will be with a 744. They will need the capacity. Even HKG could be a 744 it all depends on if ORD-HKG increases with Oasis or CX/AA.

IMO NH has a better shot than NW. They will have more room to move around in Japan than NW.

What I meant was NW channeling ALL its Asian traffic through NRT, regardless of what origin or destination, and NW channeling most of its European traffic through AMS, regardless of origin or destination. That is a kind of system that doesn't work well now days, and its a system that no other airline practices.

It all part of NorthWest's silly route structure, which I have been criticizing. People who want to go from USA to Asia on NW have to go on one of the following: LAX-NRT-Asia, SFO-NRT-Asia, PDX-NRT-Asia, SEA-NRT-Asia, MSP-NRT-Asia, or DTW-NRT-Asia. They want to restart JFK-NRT-Asia. So, in order to put the aircraft physically in JFK, they need to fly it in from one of their hubs. So, DTW-JFK serves as simply a domestic flight, carrying domestic passengers. Then, the airlines will use the same aircraft to do the JFK-NRT.

Where is MSP HKG? this is a natural routing to support Target and Best Buy and Polaroid Petters Group etc all of which have their HQ in MSP, to serve their purchasing depts who love HK as a hub for their forays to visit their China vendors.

Yes, the 787 is marketed for long, thin routes by Boeing. However, That doesn't mean it has to fly long thin routes all the time. People use 777-200ERs on 2 hour flights. Nothing wrong.

NW simply wanted a plane that could seat ~220-230 people. So, they ordered the 787. They could use the 220-230 seater anywhere in their system.

There is an aweful lot of SFO servive on your list. United has SFO well covered and I think NW would have a lot of trouble putting people on these flight. UA has feed from some +30 cities to feed 9-10 Asia flights daily. SFO will not be needed by NW when they can build their Int'l network from MSP/DTW. Specially MSP which lacks Int'l service now, using a 787 for long thin markets from MSP is perfect.

Dreamer, huh? Would be sweet but MEM-NRT is the only onw with potential IMHO.

Quoting Detroitflyer (Reply 12):

KaiTak is correct. NW did say this. It makes sense. Remember its not like positioning a 744 DTW-JFK. Its a smaller A/C. If timed right it could go with a decent load I would think, but allow for easy A/C rotation thru DTW for mx.

 yes 


i agree. but i think over time, as routes develop durring the use of the 787, SFO could prove profitable on "long thin routes" direct to other parts of the world that have grown to be niche foreign markets for NW....HELLOW SFO-BOM....... wink

So you recommend NW stick to only DTW and MSP for all their lives? That's kind of boring I think  Wink The 787 would allow them to look at other cities in he U.S. They could open routes that other U.S. carriers don't do. (LAX-HKG for example, or LAX-MNL)

True they don't have domestic feed from airport besides DTW and MSP, but as sated before, they already do international flights from LAX, SFO, PXD, SEA, BOS, and a couple more I think. So, code shares on domestic routes with SkyTeam members could be done.

By the way, They have a SFO-NRT flight as of now. I think it is a A330.
