NW 332 In SEA The 29th!

Wed Jul 28, 2004 12:24 am

I know that it's doing an extra SEA-NRT trip on the 29th at 1130a.

Does anyone know when and where the A/C will come from?? I want to try and get some pictures of it.

Thanks, Alex
You mad Bro???

The 332 as of last night was sitting outside of the maintenance hangars at MSP. Earlier in the day I saw some guys on a moving elevated platform taking photos (presumably for promotional literature). It is a very sharp looking machine and I can't wait to see more!

I would imagine that they would have taken pictures earlier, that way they could put her on the cover of the August NWA in-flight magazine.

Now that's a plug if I ever heard one!  Big grin

I admit, the composition is great. Though the plane itself, while it may be very nice, just doesn't strike my fancy. Just like the 762, they're too stubby. They need to be a little longer to keep the proportions correct, at least in my mind.

BCAInfoSys.....you so want me to say something about being being a Size Queen, don't you.  Big grin Big grin

Generally I agree, although the paint looks more striking than I remember. Starting to like it a little more.

As of lunch time it was sitting in the south satelitte next to the 742 in new colors. What a sight. But not as nice as the AS and QX airplanes, of course.

Why a smaller aircraft for SEA-NRT? I mean a 332 is a great Aircraft but the passenger and cargo capacity is quite lower. If you get my drift. If operation cost is the issue wouldnt cargo make up the diffrence?

I can see the A332 in the off Season but right now why not give 747-4 back (referring to my visit 1 year ago I believe NW flew a 747-4 in the summer and 747-2 in the offseason) then give MSP the A332 for MSP-AMS OR MSP-HNL trip? After August put the A332 on the SEA-NRT route, thus putting the 747-4 on a MSP-NRT route, Then in Octoberish or December Give SEA-AMS a A333 and the DC-10 can be sent to NRT. . . Ideas Comments?


Also in curiosity how many Mehcanical issue probs did DTW and MSP have when receiving their new A332's A333's? ~ In the Weeks following service ~

If NW really, really wants to, they can schedule an A330-300 on SEA-NRT.

It was still at S-8 when I went home. Assume it's staying there until it goes to NRT tomorrow.
Got some pictures at the gate - will appear on SEAspotter.com sometime tonight (PST).

Nice shot! Now I'm really looking forward to seeing it at PDX in October. Lately PDX has become a hospital for malfuntioning DC-10's. Last week at one point we had a total of three..
