I live about 10 min from MSP, and they fly over my house all the time. The only noisy planes are the 747s, 727s, DC-9s, and DC-10s. Minnesotans really like their NWA, but for me, I've moved here from FL and NJ, and I still haven't been on NWA, I've been here for at least 5 years!! But from what I heard, lots of people think that NWA is a great airline, with great service. Remember, that's what I HEARD!
