NWA Fm. MSP/DTW To ANC, Any IFE?

Thu Jan 22, 2004 12:22 am

I am taking NW to and from Anchorage, AK in June. Was wondering if they provide any in flight entertainment on the 6+ hour flights from MSP and to DTW?

Thanks,
Tony

I do not believe so, though I could be wrong.

I flew ANC-MSP on a DC10 in 2000 and I do not remember any IFE for that flight.

With a DC-10 it could be possible, but current schedules say it is operated by a 757-200, no IFE.

Bring your own IFE or a bunch of Tylenol PM.  Smile

I've flown both MSP-ANC-MSP and DTW-ANC-DTW on both the 752 and the DC-10. You'll find mostly readers on these flights. If there was IFE, no one would be using it.

Do yourself a favor. Bring a pair of tight-fitting earphones with your DVD or your CD player. If you disturb one of the readers (the people who've paid full-fare) you'll hear about it.  Big grin

My parents recently flew that trip over thanksgiving (757) and they said there was no IFE on there flight as well. So yes, definitely bring something on your own or it's going to be a long boring flight!

If you check out www.seatguru.com, none of NW's domestic fleet has IFE, only the international

Nope, no IFE!
Flew Northwest EWR-MSP-FAI-YVR-DTW-EWR in August and there was no IFE or radio or anything.. though the flight crew played games!

Enjoy NW!

Who needs IFE when you can spend five or six hours leafing through one of our dog-eared copies of "Inc." or "Trailer Life"?

Ya gotta wonder what the boys in Minnehopelessness are thinking. It's not like we're competing with LLC's between DTW / MSP and Alaska. Those tickets are friggin' expensive!
