NWA First Class & Upgrades

How is NWA's domestic first class? If I have a chance to upgrade, what will I expect?

Also, how much would an upgrade to first class cost for NWA?

NWA first class is very lacking on most demestic flights. Some DC-10's and 747's on domestic routes have nice first class cabins, but most are small with only non leather seats and a small seat pitch. NW partner Continental by far has a more superior product, and if I was you and you can, go with CO instead.

Upgrades are usually pretty easy on NW, depends on the city of course. As a silver elite, I am about 85% succesfull. I am not sure how much it would cost to upgrade but I would think at least $300-400 dollars each way.

Really? It says if you use the Eticket machines you can get upgrades for nominal fees. Unfortuneatly, I have a paper ticket and need to actually check in with a real person.

Well, anything beats the crap out of economy.

Forgot to add, my FF status won't help since I am at 0.  Smile

Also I will be on





So those are the specific aircraft I would like to know how first class is. Thanks!
