Iam so appalled with NWA getting rid of their former truly excellent livery, uniforms and the 'orient'. Now the airline is just trash. The old nwa had a real nice feel to it but now i just see it as the typical large airline that just doesnt give a flyin rat about their passengers.

Thanks for sharing the NW ads with us..........they are really "GROOVY". Never realized that their slogan was ever "come up where the living is beautiful". I remember their slogan around that time being:
We give you half the world, we are Northwest Orient.
I flew with NW in the early 1970s, with my mom, from JFK to SEA on a 747, there were maybe 40 or 50 pax on the aircraft......it continued on to Tokyo. We sat in first class, and the leg room was nothing special, that was before sleeper seats and individual seats, etc.
