I was just thinking that. One of the plus points about MEM is its a late flight, arriving in AMS around 12:30 and my connection to Kuwait is 16:00! When I did MEM-AMS earlier this year I arrived at 8am and waited till 16:00 for the KWI flight. As much as I like Schiphol, I am not spending another 8 hours at AMS with nothing to do. The lounge does not have free internet and no hot food, just snacks. I might take the last DTW-AMS on NW's D10, but I have to check if I can change my ticket as it is printed with MEM.
Regarding the phenomenal DTW, January 6 is KWI-AMS-DTW-TPA-DAB! So don't worry, I'll be going through it on my way back!
I'll let you guys know what I will do.
Oh by the way, AZJ, did you read my last trip report on NW? I never saw a comment form you?
