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.

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.

Quoting TWA902fly (Reply 1): 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.
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 Will try uploading it to the photo database, don't know if that will work though.
