Domestic USA A330 & A340 Flights?

Hey all! Just wondering if anyone can help me. I am trying my hardest to try and fly on each type of plane currently in active Commercial Passenger service. So far I have majority of them completed, I just need to find out if there are any A330 (of any variations) as well as an A340 (of any variations) that are in passenger service here in the US on a domestic route.

Its been an ambition since working at an airline to try and non-rev on as many different types of aircraft that are in service right now.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you A.netters!!!

DL/NW flies A330s on some routes domestically.

And no US-based carriers fly any A340s.

Not sure if they are currently, but US has used the 333 on PHL-SJU flights (and the 332 when it first came online). I'll double check for you.

...ok, so I double checked. They are not using the 333 currently, but they probably will at some point.

The closest thing to a domestic A340 is Philippines LAS-YVR.

I believe DL/NW operates the A333 from MSP to HNL and I know that the ATL-HNL run is going to an A330 (2 or 3?). There are no A340 domestic routes in the US.

No US carrier flies the A340.
Your best bet for domestic would be DL/NW to Hawaii

Delta dropped the MSP-HNL flight apparently, I can't seem to find it anywhere in the system for whatever reason...

The A330 now flies ATL-HNL. Delta seems to be dropping most of NW's Hawaii routes that NW ran quite well for many years. As they say right now, Northwest guys didn't know much about the Florida market, but Delta guys don't know anything about the North.


As for closest you'll get to A340 in the US, PR flies LAS-YVR a few times a week, its a pain in the butt to book on them because you have to show up and show your receipt and all its odd, but its a nice option.

Currently the only domestic A330/40 flights in the U.S. are the NW/DL A330s running ATL-HNL and MSP-HNL. ATL is daily and MSP is now 4x weekly (no Tue., Wed., and Thu.).

How do you mean? I flew this segment last fall (onward to MNL) and I didn't notice anything unusual about the booking or check-in. It was very full with YVR business traffic. The only challenge was the LAS Int'l terminal is antiquated with very few and very expensive food options.

As for the 330's, watch as the fall/winter schedules come out. Airlines will redeploy the widebodies as the summer season ends.

US flies PHL-SJU in the high season and sometimes CLT-PHL is a 330 sub. *Sometimes*

The SJU runs will be in the winter.
And it is a real rarity for the 333 CLT-PHL. That one is pretty much unbookable, and is usually a sub. Great if you can non-rev though.

Yea it's a good thing your really put an emphasis on *sometimes*. But it never happens. Last year one was scheduled for like a week. The only time a 333 flies that route is generally about 3pm a reserve crew will be summoned and one will be ferried down if CLT needs a new A/C to fly 704 to FRA.

1071/ 1024 to SJU and back will be upgraded to an A333 starting 12/17.
