Well since I started the last thread on this topic it has been read over 37,000 times with 200 plus reply's. We will continue this topic from here, part 2.

IIRC a A330 is now being repainted and so are some other DC-9's and A320's.

Here is link to last topic.

That, and N***NC is an obvious choice for an airline that inherited North Central (NC). You will notice that there are still quite a few DC-9-51s carrying their original North Central registration.  Smile

Also, based on my informal spotting attempts over the last summer and autumn, N375NC and N314US were among the last few A320s still in the "bowling shoe" livery (though there is a larger number of A319s still in their delivery liveries).

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

Near the end of the first thread, there was the question whether N661US flew to VCV for paint or just a charter. It appeared the final word was it was there for paint, but it has not made it back onto the list of repaints in progress. Can someone reconfirm that it is there for paint, and if so, add it to the list?

Same airplane, first in 1997, second in 2006. 3275 was registered in 2002. I think it's safe to say that's why it was registered N375NC.

For whatever reason DL seems to think the paint is the most important piece of NW's fleet...but NW's cabins need updating - the DC9's are dark and the seats are uncomfortable. The A320's - some of the oldest out there -- they need a good cabin deep clean. And what happens when a passenger is expecting what DL offers only to get on a NW flight that does not have the same IFE.....

I don't know, just seems that painting a plane doesn't make it DL. The product needs to be the same...right down to the seats.

I'll try to keep it as up to date as possible. If you have any new/updates on any of them, post them here, PM me, or email me.

And regarding interior mods...An A320 went to BFM this past Sunday and hasn't left since. As far as I'm concerned - it's unconfirmed if it's there for a retrofit or something else. If anyone has any info on this, that would be great!

They need to do:

Well then they are stupid since nothing has really changed, each airline is still run seperately and in the news the other day Northwest apparently will have its own CEO until 2012 at least. It clearly says what airline your flying on your receipt and so forth, and the ones that fly enough to "know the Delta product" would know who they are flying.

Once it gets out of the paint shop sometime, probably be one of its first routes, but it won't be put into the system until it gets within a few days of departure, and that of course is subject to change.

138 KingAir200 : It's only 50s they are painting. DL must see some sort of future for the 50s, but not so much for the 30s and 40s.
139 Mayor : Where has it been said that the DC-9's would be leaving the fleet in 2-3 years? Only as speculation on here, I believe.

153 Brilondon : This is very nice, I don't think that the titles are too small, maybe you just need glasses.
154 Timf : I'm not sure if it's just the angle of the photo or not, but the titles appear to be slightly larger than N801NW. They extend over 1 or 2 more window

161 Bobnwa : The whole rumor is that Nyrop was thinking about changing the name of Northwest to United States Airlines, but finally decided not to. The US suffix
