Hey all,

Recently NW seems to have be changing some of their Asia ops around quite a bit. While checking loads for NRT next week, I noticed that NW7/8 on SEA-NRT now seems to be operated with an A333, in addition to the 3x weekly NW85/86 which is also an A333. Does anyone know why this is, and if it will stay this way??

Northwest does have some Airbus 330-300s that do Asia operations now.
They toke over a few of the old Boeing 747-200 routes that went to Guam and Saipan I believe.
The Airbus 330-300 does seat a few more passengers then the Airbus 330-200 which allows it to takeover routes with more passenger demand like the Seattle to Tokyo route.
Keep in mind in general the difference between the Airbus 330-200 and Airbus 330-300 is that the Airbus 330-200 does fly further then the Airbus 330-300.
Also keep in mind Seattle is a Airbus 330 Maintance place besides MSP and DTW.

its just an A333 for the last two weeks of June. It switches back to a A332 in July, that's according to the FA bid packet. Not sure of the reasoning.

Last May, PDX-AMS operated as an A333 a few days which subsequently made PDX-NRT operate as an A333 since it's the same aircraft.

Too bad it isn't permanent ... this route needs more capacity.
