I'm looking at flightaware.com right now and they list tonight's second Amsterdam flight(#60) as being flown with a 757-300. Is this information accurate? If so, I had no idea the 753 had the legs for such a route.

According to nwa.com it is a 753... so i am guessing thats true. Range is 3467 NM (fully loaded). BOS-AMS is 3004nm.... so should be no problem. Also assuming its a sub and probably not 100% full.

I hope they prepared those PAX who were thinking they were in WBC and got domestic F seats! Or maybe some elites got a nice upgrade?

Interestingly, it looks like it was the 753 used for the Browns charter flight to PHL and initially scheduled to stay at PHL until after the game tomorrow night.

Now on the way to AMS:

Looks like none of NW's 757s were cancelled into BOS.... so im guessing there was a mechanical problem or something and this is a sub? or was it planned ahead of time?

Also according to nwa.com, the 753 will be back in Boston on Monday on the return flight from AMS. Even this far out it's being listed as significantly delayed, with a BOS arrival at 2:13 p.m. I might rise to the bait on this one, but Boston weather doesn't look great for tomorrow afternoon.

The AMS BOS flight is delayed because it is using the same B753 equipment that is arriving from BOS. Normally, this flight uses one of the B752s that arrives from either IAD or JFK at 6am. It seems therefore that the B753 must be repositioned to BOS. On a different note, there are only 94 passengers on board NW060 tonight, so they shouldn't be packed.

My guess would be weather/fall out from the storm earlier in the week...

No, german charter carrier Condor had flights with the 753 from Germany with a fuel stop to certain destinations in Canada.

ATA flew 753´s across the pond on charter occasions as well, saw one of them in LEJ.

That must have been a comfy flight, if the B753 has 224 seats or so, everyone had an empty seat next to them  Smile

I think Thomas Cook and/or Condor has used their 256-280-seat B753s on Atlantic crossings with a fuel stop at Gander or Deer Lake or something...?

Will a 200-seat B753 be able to fly Western Europe-NYC without too much payload restrictions or is it simply too far?



Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

Typically the 753 would be able to make the route eastbound but not westbound, especially in the Winter months however, this is low reason and loads are probably really low. Just last week I flew AMS-BOS on the A333 and it was less than half full.

Couldn't resist taking a look myself... Quite a rare sight at AMS, so took some photos. Unfortunately, I cannot upload it to my profile, that feature doesn't appear to be working any more  Sad Will try uploading it to the photo database, don't know if that will work though.

N546US flew in NW59 yesterday which turns into NW60 usually. That aircraft did not fly back out of BOS so I would suspect it went tech on arrival and is in the hangar in BOS.

What kind of IFE do these 753's have? Do the FC seats have individual screens or is it center mounted CRT's or drop down LCD's?

Assume this is because a fuel stop will be planned on the way back... although if weather is favorable and the load is really light they may end up being able to skip the stop.

Drop down LCDs across the board. Normally they only bring them down going to and from Hawaii, but I'm sure in a case like this they made them available for the crossing.

The 300s have the same old domestic F and Y. These planes make the west coast flights to HNL. They have drop down video screens.

It was booked to 89 coming back, so maybe they will be able to make it nonstop.

This is great....amazing the "little things" that can make ones day. Although some charters have been done in the past, this should be the first scheduled flight from the U.S. to Europe in a 753.

So the consensus is there will be NO fuel stop?

Do you (or anyone else) know why they would only make IFE available on flights to/from Hawaii and not other domestic flights?
