"There's no official word, but this is part of the work-rule changes NW is negotiating with the pilots. I was working a red-eye with a DTW based 757 captain whos said that 757's were going to be utilised on transatlantic routes. That GLA, SNN and possibly MAN will be served with the 757. GLA and SNN for certain, while MAN, and BHX are being loosely considered. Announcements are supposed to be coming soon. DL is also filing an application for rights to fly into GLA from ATL. NW is looking at BOS and DTW."
This was written by a NWA F/A, but is it true? ATL would provide excellent connecting possibilities and I truely hope this service comes true in the next year or two.
