For commonality purposes Northwest Should have purchased the boeing 777 family in one large order as a replacement for the 747-200s and DC-10s (both domestic AND International). Anyway since they have ordered the A330-300 I would expect them to purchase the A340-600 as a 747-200 replacement since it has cockpit commonality with the A320, A319, and A330
The Boeing 777 in NWA's Livery I doubt it
Ahh, But the things that could have been...
Imagine domestic/international service on boeings most prised aircraft!
P.S. The A346 has all new Rolls-Royce Engines which should provide an ample performance boost when compared the underpowered CFM-56-5C4s of the earlier Airbus A340 models
