I was wondering if anyone could post a comprehensive list of all the current NW 753 routes, and if possible list routes and flight numbers will be operated with the 753 in the up coming winter and spring schedules. Is there any chance we will see the 753 on the MSP-PHX route as we have in the past winter months?

I have the following, albeit a lot of these routes are only operated certain seasons with the 753.

MSP;
LAX
LAS
SEA
PDX
SFO
PHX
ANC
MCO
CUN
DTW
BOS
BWI
MKE
MEM

DTW;
LAX
LAS
SEA
SFO
MCO
MKE
PHX
LAS

MEM;
MSP

As well as the west coast Hawaii runs.

Are there any current or past scheduled 753 routes that I have missed?

MSP-IND comes and goes from time to time.

NWA 757-300 Operations / December 2008 & April 2009


Detroit

MSP - NW739, NW741, NW755


Los Angeles

HNL - NW803


Minneapolis

DTW - NW756

LAX - NW319, NW803, NW303

MEM - NW444

PDX - NW217

SEA - NW171, NW805, NW807, NW161

SFO - NW221


Portland

HNL - NW217


San Francisco

HNL - NW221


Seattle

HNL - NW219, NW807

OGG - NW805


These are all of the flights loaded into SkyTeam. What I am questioning with 16 757-300 the above mentioned schedule is using a lot less 757-300 equipment. Las Vegas, Phoenix, Orlando, Milwaukee, and Cancun show no 757-300 service December 2008 & April 2009.

SEA probably sees more 753s than any other station besides the hubs, and maybe even MEM.

NW normally has a 753 on the MSP-BOS run during the summer, but unfortunately I don't see it in the schedules for this year.

Those are most of the flights that I have found, and I too was wondering why there would be a lot less 753s flying. I hope NW isnt parking any. It could also be that some routes arnt loaded into the system yet. I have found that from time to time they will tweek the schedules and swap aircraft.

The winter schedule, let alone spring 2009 schedule is not finalized, hence why you don't see everything. The schedule at this point in time is more or less a placeholder or default schedule. Right now they are still working on redoing the fall schedule with the recently announced capacity cuts.

Don't worry, the 753's will still show up, NW is not parking any of the 757-300's. The schedule will likely look very similar to that in years past for the 753's, and as you said there are some routes that will vary. Even when scheduled with a 753, NW will occasionally swap a 752 on domestic runs as aircraft availability fluctuations. This is particularly true on the hub-to-hubs routes.

I personally would be shocked to not see the 753s into MCO this winter. Maybe not in December, but these aircraft are shoe-ins for Springtime service to the Mouse House, thanks to their killer CASM. I can't remember a Spring season that there wasn't 753 service here, FWIW. As others have said, it's likely the schedules aren't finalized yet. Heck, AA just finalized November, and that's not even 100% loaded yet. Give it a few months.

Unfortunately I could not find that flight operating in the December and April schedules. However, there is still hope as was posted earlier the schedules are not competed and they will mirror the winter schedules that Northwest Airlines has operated in the past.

In the upcoming NWA/DAL merger I would think that the 757-300 will be taking on the routes DAL flies such as LAX-HNL, LAX-OGG, LAX-KOA, SLC-HNL and so forth. What I understand (from rumor) is the 757-300 will be the sole aircraft to Hawaii with the exception of the MSP and ATL flights which will more than likely be 767-300 moving forward. At this point it is all rumor. When the dust settles I am sure there witll be a few changes in store, to say the least.

Like I said, for the past 2-3 years NW has operated the 753 to PHX in the winter time, and I was looking on thier website and see nothing of the sort. Thats why I asked.

The Boeing 757-300 is a neat aircraft.
I flew on one coming back to MSP from DTW one time when I was on trip that I had to do a transfer in DTW. It had that clean/new smell to it.
I wouldn't worry about those aircraft going any place anytime soon since they are newer aircraft compared to some of the other aircraft flying in Northwests fleet.
Keep in mind some of these Boeing 757-300s were suppose to replace the Dc-10-40 aircraft that did some of the domestic flights to LAX, MCO, PHX, SFO etc. The more high passenger traffic every day destinations.

The reason they won't go anywhere isn't because of their age, it's two other reasons:

1) they carry large numbers of passengers on domestic routes more cheaply than any other airplane in the sky, and
2) they would be hard to place elsewhere as they are the only P&W-powered 753s in the world.
