NW DC-10'S@ LGW

Sun Jul 16, 2006 8:51 am

Hey guyz

This has prob been asked b4,but can anyone tell me if Northwest has any dc-10's (scheduled) operating to lgw? Not sure if they are all 330's by now. Thought they were, but just read a trip report where a NW DC10 was heading from MSP to LGW.
Would love the oppertunity to fly one of those ole birds one last time

thanks

Yes, the last NW DC-10 flight to LGW will be on the 28th of October. It will operate as NW 44 Departing MSP at 7:00pm and arriving LGW at 8:00am on the 29th. Then coming back as NW 43 at 12:05pm Arriving MSP at 3:05pm.

After that it switches to an A330-300, and LGW appears to be year round this year.

Good news.....lets hope that last winter's suspension of the MSP-LGW flight was a one time thing.

Yes, it's good to see these classics powering past daily again, I will miss them when they're gone, it's DAS only then for the DC10 @ LGW,
