I will be flying next February on Northwest from AMS to EWR and back from JFK to AMS on KLM. I can't find a schedule on the Internet that would tell me the exact plane type. NW57 is always a DC-10 and KL644 is a 747 Combi. Does anybody here know if the NWA flight will be on a DC-10-30 or -40? And the KLM one, 743 or 744?

I am pretty sure that KL644 is usually is either a B743 or a B742-SUD, I don't ever recall seeing a B744 on this flight. NW57 on the other hand is a DC10-30.

I have been doing flight(s) searches for a long long times, and I have good memories of all flights, and operations. Visit this site as well:

1) Http://www.airlines.com ( Free Registration !! )

2) Http://www.travelocity.com ( Free Registration !! )

I have found these flights many times before.... Take a look here :

1) Northwest Airlines Flt #8641 ( KLM Flight )
Boeing 747 ( Possible the 100s' or 200s' series )
Departure: 1:55 pm Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS)
Destination: 4:15 pm New York, NY (JFK) Miles: 3644

2) Northwest Airlines Flt #58 ( NWA Flight )
McDonnell Douglas DC10 ( Possible the 30s' or the 40s' )
Departure: 6:20 pm Newark, NJ (EWR) (Next day)
Destination: 7:45 am Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS)Miles: 3657

These flights seems ok to be found @ Http://www.airlines.com

AMS = Amsterdam Int'l.
JFK = New York J. F. Kennedy Int'l.
EWR = Newark International

Usually both of the KLM flights into JFK are 747-300's, on occasion it will be a 747-400.

Actually, if youwanted to fly AMS-EWR, you could take SQ24, which is a 747-400 both ways (return: SQ23).

Thanks for all the info. I guess I'd take SQ if I lived in Amsterdam, but I don't. I have to get first from Helsinki to AMS and SQ doesn't codeshare on either KL or AY on that route.

By the way are those KL 742 SUDs or 743s already equipped with glass cockpits or not? I know they'll get glass cockpits for those but don't know if it's just a plan or if have they actually started the project yet.
