Reg for the 753?

Reg for the Saab?

And I've also hear there is a XJ CR9 there as well. But there's only so much hanger space. Anyone have concrete info on what is where?

How do you know that the 757-300 is going there to get painted and would it go to GLH to be painted. The 747-400's and A330's went to VCV.

Not sure of the reg of the saab... the update was that we're sending a saab this week and an a/c will go in for paint every 8 days. 45% of the fleet will be painted by the end of the year. If I hear of a reg, I'l let everyone know. The pic in the SKY magazine looks sharp... the saab will look quite nice!

History has shown that Favre always right when it comes to statements about NWA.

And it seems that the other narrow bodies, i.e. Airbus and DC-9's went to GLH. Lets hope they do a better job this time. From the reports I've heard and seen, they haven't exactly been quality work at GLH.

What i'm wondering is whether the winglets on the -300 are in fact going to be added to our fleet?

They seem to be kicking the painting into high gear. There's another 757-200 heading to GLH tonight. That'll make it 5 planes there (753, 752, D95, CR9, SF3) and 3 in VCV (744, 2x 320). Any idea what the maximum capacity is of each of the paint shops?

I doubt it. The only scheduled trans-Atlantic flight I can think of a NW 757-300 having done was a one-time sub for a 757-200 that had gone mechanical in Boston and did a BOS-AMS flight. It's also done some charters via SNN.

Right now the 757-200s have about 175 seats for international configuration (160 in NW Configuration), while the 767-300ERs have around 225 seats. While it's a pretty large gap, it's not the end of the world, especially given that the 757-300 would have difficulties on a year-round flight to Western Europe out of JFK if the plane was full.

The 753 is currently a high-density, 2-class aircraft, seating 224 passengers. Nearly the same as the 763.

The 753's serve the same purpose as DL's domestic 763's. There is zero need to send the 753's to Europe, considering the glut of 752's DL has, and the fact that they are scaling back on capacity across the Atlantic, particularly coming up this fall.
