It seems Northwest Airlines is the only one who still flies wide-bodied aircrafts (DC10-40)
domestically.

Delta and AA are no longer flying DC-10 or MD-11 for their domestic routes .. Any idea or info on this issue ... Thanks

Cheers

Delta does use an MD11 on a domestic leg of on Int'l flight ATL-PDX and return

I think that Continental still has some DC10s flying, but I don't know which series I can try and find out, as there are two Continental instructors in the same class as I am here in SEA

What about AA's MD-11 between DFW and MIA?

North of the 49th parallel, there are tons of domestic flights aboard widebodies. Such as YVR-YYZ, 747, A340, 767, DC-10. YYC-YYZ, 767. Lots of Rapidair ones in the Onatrio/Quebec area.

United still uses the DC-10 on the HNL Route and on some other routes, as with the 747, 777, and 767 to denver

Airlines are still using widebodies domestically. Most Hawaiian service is done by widebodies, and on the mainland there are still a ton of 767 flights. There are also things like UA 777 ORD-DEN, 744 ORD-SFO, AA 777 ORD-DFW, AA MD-11 DFW-MIA, and probably others.

Delta flies a lot of wide-bodies domestically

DFW-LAX
ATL-FLL (9 763 flights per day!!)
LAX-JFK
PHX-JFK (new)

United flies its 777's also as mentioned above but also seasonal service
IAD-MIA

as well as a variety like ORD-IAD which then fly transcon to LHR and CDG to name a few

Every airline that has widebody aircraft operates those widebodies on domestic routes with the exception of USAirways!! (AA, DL, NW, UA, CO, TW).

In addition, UA not only deploys 777/747/767/DC-10's on hub to hub flights...they deploy an EXTREMELY large amount of those planes to some of the smaller-served UA destinations such as SEA, MIA, BWI, etc. The same goes for AA, NW, and DL.

I thought DELTAFLYER was asking specifically about DC10/MD11s

Delta uses the MD-11 on it's Pacific routes to Hawaii, Japan etc. American retired it's DC-10's/MD-11's to Fed Ex in favor of new 777's.

American still has one DC-10 domestic flight, from EWR to LAX. Other that that they have a 777 flight from DFW to ORD which I flew on two months ago, a flight from DFW to MIA on the MD-11 like you said, a bunch of 767's flying domestically and the A300 on flights between JFK to MIA. Now all transcon flights from JFK to LAX and SFO are 767's. They also fly 767's from SFO to DFW, ORD to SFO and ORD to LAX.
So you see, right now American has domestic flights on all five widebody types that it has in its fleet inventory.

minor point, all DL flights to HNL and OGG rt are L1011, until the 767-400 can replace them We're thinking winter 2000

Indeed you are correct except that Delta do indeed fly wide-bodied aircraft internally; they fly the 777-200 on routes from Atlanta to Orlando (mainly for crew training purposes) when not flying to London. They also fly hundreds of flights each day with their L-1011 TriStars and 767s domestically, and MD-11s fly regularly scheduled daily flights from Atlanta to Portland and back - and soon also Atlanta to New York JFK.
