Does any one know if Northwest has plans to ever order the 777 or the A340. I know they ordered the A330(when will that be delivered), but are they ever going to use any thing other than the 747 and the Dc-10 for their long haul services.

I'm not 100% sure but I think that Northwest had ordered the A340 but then changed it's order to the A330. The first NWA A333s won't fly until 2004-2005. I hope Northwest orders the A332/A345/A346 or the B767-400/B772/B773/B77X sometime soon to replace it's DC-10s and 747-100/200s. I also suspect that Northwest might order the A3XX at some point.

How can Airbus put a clause in not to allow the purchase of 777s when it got all pissy when Boeing tried to sign exclusive contracts with Delta, American, and Continental?? I dont think they could. Also, hasnt Northwest publicly said that the A3XX is far too expensive in its current state?

Nope, there is no orders for 777's or A340's. Once NWA retires our DC-10's, they should be replaced by the A330's. All of us ramp workers want the 777 and 767, they are great to load. Hope this helps...
