The DC10-40s will be gone in September of this year. The first
B757-300 will be delivered beginning of July. A330s start arriving
in 2003....

I thought that the A330s were going to be used domestically as well.

The A330s will initially be used for the the AMS trips. Im sure they will
show up on some domestic runs for crew training. When NWA took
the first B747-400, that plane regularly flew MSP/PHX for just that
purpose.
