Northwest has rights to India, and utilizes them with daily 747-400 service from Amsterdam to Mumbai (Bombay). These flights used to alternate with NW and KL flying to Bombay and Delhi on alternating days, but now KL flies the AMS-DEL flights exclusively, and NW takes the AMS-BOM run.

UA inherited the Pan Am routes and NW has I think republics routes or whatever airline the got them from. Thats why CO, DL and AA hardly have a presence in Asia (CO the most of the three). From what I understand, its very hard to get routes in most of Asia for US carriers that didn't inherit or buy them a long time ago like NW and UA.
