Northwest Airlines still has the A330 on option order but it will be a while until they get them.
Northwest Airlines will be putting more McDonnel Douglas DC-10 aircraft in it's fleet. I don't get why Northwest Airlines is doing that if they want an aircraft like the DC-10, They should order the MD-11 and save it for a couple more years.
It seems that Northwest is doing more to fix it's domesitc fleet with all the 757-200's, A319's and A320's it has on order and not doing anything about it's international fleet but they are getting more old DC-10 aircraft in it's fleet. NWA has 10+ 747-400's on order but will be only getting 2 in the next 2 years.
I think Northwest Airline should order the MD-11 rather than putting more older DC-10 aircraft in it's fleet.
