I just love the good old NW
DC-10s! I've had my most memorable flights on them and enjoyed it all the time, especially when they still used to serve Dr.Pepper on board
. Does any airline still do that by the way?
Well, I'm sure the new A330s are more comfortable but most likely not half as exotic to fly on these days. After all, you don't get to fly on DC-10s a lot anymore. Consider yourself lucky to fly on one.
The seating on the NW
DC-10-30 in coach was ok for me (6' tall) and in WorldBusiness it was more than ok
Service was mostly good, too and the entertainment system is functional as well. Of course PTVs are better but they show the most recent movies so there is nothing to complain about.
I flew them on BOS
too and always found them to be a very good option out of BOS
. On domestic routes with NW
I try to fly on DC-10s, too and I never worry about their age, I'm sure NW
's maintenance takes good care of them.
DC-10s are way to go! Too bad we have to see them leave in a few years...
