i dont have time to make this nice and detailed.....it is what it is...enjoy

MSP-ANC
aug 6
flt 841
757-200

I got to MSP at about 7am for an 8am departure. I was allowed to select my seat since the flight wasnt compleatly full. I selected 36A, a nice window seat behind the wing, just what i like. I boarded at gate C16. Th aircraft was N551NW. deliverd in 01 it had LCD screens in the isle, sadly NW never uses them.

after waiting a while at the gate the captan apoligized for the delay. finnaly we pushed back and the engines started...whoo!! but no... we didnt move for a while after the engines were started and when we finnaly did it was back to the gate! the captan came on again and said the left engine wasnt working right. mechs came out about 15 min later and after about another 30 min it was determined that we had to get a differnt aircraft. so after about 2hrs of sitting on that plane we went no where and had to get off! they told us to go down to C1 where new aircraft was assigned to 841. this aircraft was older, one of the late 80's 757s NW has. N523NW. i was called to the desk and given a new seat.....23A. why they changed i dunno, maybe they thought id like to sit closer to the front? at least it was still a window....thou the view was partially blocked thanx to the wing and engine.

we took off about 3 hrs late. for an aircraft nearly fully loaded it was still powerful! 757s are amazing

other than that delay the flight went well, F/As came around as soon as we were at FL350. the snack box and sandwiches were offerd...i passed as i just had a slice of pizza during the change of planes. I had a pepsi to drink...got the whole can. legroom was good, im short anyway so that never matters. after the F/As were done there was about 5 hrs left. no IFE and no free food. I had my i pod and a window, really i could care les about that stuff, im flying!
F/As came around a few times with water but mostly they hid for the rest of the flight.

Great Report! I've been on flight 841 and arrived at the exact gate you departed from. I've done the BOS-MSP leg.

Nice report. I appreciated your pics of the various birds at ANC -- very cool! Just curious, what was the intention of your trip? (If you're willing to share). I have a few classmates that were very likely on the same exact flight, as well, en-route to perform mission work in AK.

Are you kidding me? No IFE on the 757? That is a long time on a plane without IFE.


The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

just for fun...i work for NW and had a couple days off so went to ANC


Yeah, no IFE of food on a 6 hr flight is kinda bad if you dont love flying. i think NW should really do somthing about that.

Nice pics, I have flown that same flight many times, if your sitting on the right side of the aircraft there are some incredible views. Left side isnt bad, but one can see the Wrangell-StElias range nicely on that side. I also got to see an incredible view of the northern lights on the ANC-MSP leg of it. First time in my life they appeared to be below me. Not sure if this was an illusion or what, but a nice flight. I hope you enjoyed AK, and the 206 flight.

NW offers food for purchase, which allows for a much more substantial snack than for free on other airlines.
