Northwest's 747-100s

Thu Dec 30, 1999 11:09 am


I was wondering if Northwest still had 747-100s and what routes they used them on. Also, I have never seen a NW 747 with three windows, so I'm assuming tehy put the eight in to make it look like a -200 right. When are they getting rid of these?

I'm not sure what routes they use them on, but according to their website, NW still has 747-100s (as well as 747-200As, 747-200Bs, 747-200Zs, and 747-400s).

As far as I know, NW has retired all but one of their -100s (they were all built in 1970). Only the very first one, N601US, is still flying. And it´s still looking quite nice - even if it is the oldest 747 still used for passenger service.

As far as the number of windows goes I believe some of the very early 100s had three windows but Boeing changed to eight later in production.
