When the sad time comes, and NWA retires its mighty fleet of lovly DC9 a/c, which city (not a hub city) do you think will be served by the DC9 until the last days.

My guess will be Bismarck since NWA (not counting NW Airlink) only opperates the DC9 into this city.

I would have to say AUS. We don't get anything new, except Frontier's A319!

I would guess that STL, if not the last city, will be one of the last cities that gets Northwest DC-9 service. Except for a Bae-146 flight, Northwest only brings DC-9's into STL.

I'd say MOT, Minot International.... all they have is ONE airline, North West and ONE aircraft being opperated there, the DC-9.. (30s, and occasional 40s and 50s)

Did I miss something?

Northwest retiring its DC-9s? I haven't even heard of a replacement aircraft yet and people are talking about its last flight?

i think tg747-300 was just wondering what people think NW will do when the retirement does come.

I think the last 9 flight for NW is somewhere at least 2 years down the line, possibly closer to 5.

I think they should do something really out of the ordinary with a DC9, like run the MSP-AMS service with it. Maybe do an "around-the-world" farewell or something. Yeah.  Smile

When the time comes for MW to retire the DC-9s I think the last city to have DC-9 service will be ATL. It is the site of their DC-9 MX base, acquired in the Republic merger, and is really the spiritual home of NW's DC-9s since many of them entered service with Southern (which later merged with North Central to form Republic), and NW's oldest DC-9s are Southern's DC-9s.

I live in ND and most of the planes NW flies in here is DC-9's. But I am saying the last city to be served by the DC-9 will be Fargo ND (FAR).

NWA ARJ. don't you think that Minot or Bismarck is more likely to get the last DC9?
Fargo is already served by the A319/20 aswell as the DC9, while BIS and Minot oly get the DC9.

BTW: An Airbus @ Bis would look strange

Also do you live in Fargo or Moorhead?
