"NW flew nearly 200 daily MAINLINE flights ex-MEM
Northwest held pretty steady at about 120 mainline flights at MEM
for the past 9 years or so. The arrival of the CRJs starting in 2000 started this most recent trend of eliminating mainline flights out of Memphis.

came in 1994 - this excerpt is from Northwest's history page on their web site:
March 2 Northwest completes a restructuring of its Memphis hub schedule into three omni-directional banks, improving connecting opportunities and profitability.
