The other option is to fly through SLC on Delta.... but I would only do that if you were trying to accumulate SkyMiles. In terms of pure convenience, fly with the hometown crowd.

Definately Northwest. MD-80's and 767's are ok, but I would jump at the chance to fly on a 747, as I have never been on one before. MD-80's are like the DC-9's, so nothing new there unless you happen to like that particulat class of plane.

NWA all the way!

If you really like being on an airplane, go out of the way and fly through ATL, but I also think flying on a 747 would be cool.

When did NWA start operating 747s on MSP-LAX?

You'll be stuck on a DC-10

I am not going to say I hate DL, but NWA provides better service than DAL. Take NWA.

I would like to say that ive flown MSP-LAX 20 times or more and it was ALWAYS a 757! Never ever have i seen a 747 on that route.

I too don't think NW has a 747 going on the MSP-LAX route. I would fly DL. NW may not show a movie or offer audio, esp. if you are on an Airbus. Although very out of the way, if you are an airliner lover it is fun to do the DL thing through ATL and get a 764 out of it.

If it were my choice I would choose the NWA 747 because of the non-stop. Otherwise wouldn't it take a little too long to go from MSP-ATL-LAX. I would go with NWA.

You should take NWA direct MSP-LAX lot better than taking Delta and connect into ATL... You could fly NWA DC10 anyhow if u choose NWA. From DFW, I would take AA, DL or UA ... nonstop...

NWA & Sun Country both has nonstop service between MSP & LAX...

The 747 is not the greatest plane in the world. I would personally take a 764, which is a brand new plane, rather than a 742. But if you've never been on a 747, I'd say go for it.

Take Sun Country!!!!

A BRAND NEW 737-800.

Although, I love DC-10s, and I would probably take that one.

You may never have another opportunity to fly a DC-10. I won't. I live in Dallas, and I attended the final arrival of an American DC-10 last fall. I wish I had the chance.

As far as service goes, the consensus of THIS FORUM seems to be that Northwest's service is lacking. Little in flight entertainment, if any, and pretty boring overall.

However, people here seem to be growing to hate Delta with a passion. I hear lots of complaints about CRAMPED coach seating and less than cushy first class on the 764.

Are you limited to DL or NW?? I might consider United. I like United, and they have great service in my experience from March and May.

Also, Atlanta is a terrible airport. I don't like it at all. That's my honest opinion. The terminal is HUGE and the transportation system is impossible to find.

That's everything I can suggest about this.

AA737-823,
I was just in ATL this afternoon, and it is by far the most sensible airport I have ever been to. The transportation system is easy to find. Perhaps you should take a course in sign-reading. J/K  Smile

Delta2006,
I have to agree with DeltAirlines. If you have never been on a 747, take the nonstop with NW. Their service is slightly better anyway. However I thought they used DC-10's there. However if it's not a 747, go thru ATL and take the 764. I was on it for the first time a week ago and it is a great plane! It has a lot of aerodynamic noise though...

Non-stop on NW or Sun Country would be my choice, given the potential for connecting flights to become misadventures in today's air travel environment.

NW's current timetable shows that all MSP-LAX flights are opb 320, 757 or D10 types, with their once daily LAX-HNL frequency opb a D10. It has been several years since NW has scheduled 747s on their MSP-LAX or LAX-HNL services.

However, there may be hope. NW substituted a 747 on their MSP-PHX route for the D10 scheduled on flights I was on in March, '99, and again in December of the same year. As my PHX-MSP flight was beginning to board in Dec, '99, yet another NW 747 arrived from MSP, also substituting for a D10. Neither of these flights took place during holiday travel periods.

While I can't say whether NW might do the same on their MSP-LAX service, it's always a possibility.

Support the low fare carrier with the new planes, leather seats, and audio. Afterall they're the one keeping the fares low. Deffinately fly Sun Country.
