What equipement does NWA uses on its two long-haul services from LAX (KIX and HNL if i'm correct)?

Curious to see that they don't fly LAX-NRT.

What terminal houses NWA ops please?

NW flies out of Terminal 3 at LAX. NW operates a daily NRT-LAX and KIX-LAX with 747-451 equipment.

The KIX flight is or was a 747-200, the flights to HNL are DC-10-40's.

OK, to set the record straight:

NW operates from Terminal 2 at LAX. Terminal 3 is just used for overflow operations, or in other words when all the gates at Terminal 2 are full (2 is also used by QF, NZ, Hawaiian, etc.)

NW flies LAX-NRT nonstop...in fact it's flight NW1. NW2 is the return flight, routed BKK-NRT-LAX-LAS. LAX-NRT is a 747-200, but the continuation of that flight (NRT-BKK) is a 747-400. LAX-KIX is also a 747-200. DC-10-30s and -40s are used on NW's two daily LAX-HNL runs.

If you're curious, NW operates these routes from LAX:

Hope this helps...if I'm incorrect, forgive me, I've been up since 4am EST today, early BOS-MSP run.


Create your own luck.

is the route LAX-KIX operated by DC-10 non-stop? I've never thought that DC10 can fly for that long! But I am sure that NRT-LAX is operated by 744.

Both NRT and KIX flights from LAX are operated by 742s and have been for the last five years. NW briefly had a 744 on LAX-KIX-MNL aroumd Christmas '95 and before that, NW ended 744s at LAX around mid-92. The777Man

Actually, NW flies the DC10 on the SEA/KIX route and SEA/AMS, so yes, a DC10 can fly quite far. In fact, NW flew a DC10 nonstop from LAX to HKG (empty, of course!) when the aircraft was first introduced into the fleet.

From next year - Northwest will also operate a LAX-TPE-KUL and LAX-NRT-KUL route code-sharing with Malaysia Airlines.
