NWA's A320 Maintenance Facilities

Wed Jun 04, 2003 10:53 pm

I recall there was quite a lot of political and public turmoil regarding the setting of the Northwest Airlines' A-320 maintenance facilities in Minnesota back in the 90's.

Anyways... Was the problem solved? Where are the facilities now located?

Regards.

DLH is indeed the main maintenance base for the airbusses. Though line maintenance is also done in various cities including MEM, DTW and MSP. I don't believe NW does mx in Lake Charles though.

I haven't heard that... I doubt it, though, given NW's large investment in DLH.
