Azjubilee--you are right about summer schedule, but I have this sneaky feeling that as soon as the kids get back to Class on Labour Day, which Falls on Monday Sept 2nd this year, and the pax load counts drop that we will start seeing equipment substitutions with 757 and A320's taking over the domestic segments of NW Flight 1 and 2. Northwest has always been willing to quickly adapt its equipment to the load, especially if perhaps a long in the tooth -40 needs some extra maintenance--why do it just for the sake of running the a/c for another 3 weeks. I would hate to book this route in September and be disappointed at not flying the big 3 holer. For a last chance at flying this beast, it may be safer to book earlier than later.
