Where does the NW 757 at NRT fly from ? Does NW have 757's stationed in the far east ?
I looked at the distance from both LAX and SEA to NRT, but they are way beyond 757 range as far as I know. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
I flew Boeing 757s on NRT-TPE once (before it was cancelled late last year). Those Boeing 757s are like domestic Boeing 757s with oven and additional closets. They also have video equipments to show short subjects in the mainscreen.
PanAm also had connecting flights I hear from NRT-ITM or so for the domestic runs. If UA bought these rights from Panam, are they allowed to have one flight to ITM? I know that UA codeshares with NH as of today.
The 757's there are there to replace the A320s there, which they did. With the SARS outbreak in Asia, NWA wanted to downsize their flight-size, so they replaced some 747's and DC-10's with A320's. When the SARS outbreak was barely there, NWA upgraded the flights to 757's. Now, some are A330-200's.
Flying an aeroplane with only a single propeller to keep you in the air. Can you imagine that? -Capt. Picard
The only differences between the Domestic 757-251 at NWA and the NRT based 757-251 at NWA is. The IFE is activated and there are 4 less seats in F/C or WBC as it is sold in Asia. Domestic 24F Asia 20 WBC.
Yep they are the same seats as domestic FC. So you can't correct me on this one ! ! ! HA HA ! You just get more leg room. More inflight service and a personal DVD player to use for the flight. Also a dedicated Purser.
