Northwest A330s Across The Pond And Beyond

Fri Mar 12, 2004 6:33 am

Where does NW fly their new A330s to? How many do they have? And which routes will they add the A330s to in the next few months?

I have to fly IAD-AMS, and later to BOM, and NW appear to have the cheapest J class fares around.

IAD-AMS is a KL 767.

AMS-BOM will continue to be a D10 unless upgraded to a 744 for quite a bit I'm sure.

I find the KL 767 extremely uncomfortable- I flew EWR-AMS recently and the seat pitch in Y was not very much fun- 31" I think. NO PTV, interior was kind of drab.. service was marginal.... We flew KL AMS-DEL on a MD-11 and I found that to be a much better experience- better seat pitch plus I love the trijet.

The NW 333 fleet (about 6 aircraft) is DTW based. DTW-AMS/FRA are 333. DTW-CDG will go 333 this summer I read. All LGW services remain D10.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

As of today the NWA A330-300 fleet is 5. One more comes to NWA next month and will be placed on the DTW to FCO route.

There will be 4 flights a day as of 01 April from DTW to AMS.
One flight a day to FRA.

As of May.
One flight DTW to FCO.

Hopes this helps in your planning. Rumor and only rumor is AMS to BOM will become an A330 is September or October. Still trying to find out if that is true or not.
