Okay people... get it through your heads. Northwest Airlines is NOT retiring 747-400s.

"Respect at the end of a long career" is referring to the Captain, not the aircraft.

Can we stop with the annoying posts about this now?


It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.

Northwest Air to Retire Aircraft

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Northwest Airlines Corp. (Nasdaq:NWAC), the No. 4 U.S. airline, said on Tuesday it would accelerate retirement of some Boeing aircraft, as the carrier grapples with the slump in business travel that has battered the airline industry.

The airline said it will remove from service 2 of its fleet of long range Boeing 747-400 aircraft. The cost-cutting measures will result in incremental improvements of $135 million for the year as it also reduces flights and closes facilities.

Northwest said it was also cutting capacity growth in the third quarter by 1 percent and in the fourth quarter by about 5 percent.

Northwest Airlines shares gained $1.30 to $26.10 on Nasdaq on the news.

I hear that SriLankan is looking for aircraft. Maybe they will be leased there?

I thought NW ordered additional 747-400s when they placed their order for 757-300s and A330s? Anyways, why wouldn't they retire 747-200s first? It doesn't make sense.

I think so too. They have just ordered additional B 747-400s. And it is quite odd that they will replace their B 742s with B 747-400/400ER in the future.

Sounds strange.....
