Finally, a NW domestic flight with IFE
|Quoting AlitaliaMD11 (Reply 7):|
I don't see why they wouldn't turn them on.
|Quoting Floridaflyboy (Reply 8):|
Well, he is correct in that other aircraft in the NW fleet are equipped with IFE (not in-seat), and they don't turn that system on and show anything during domestic flights by those aircraft.
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 1):|
It is a scheduled flight and it looks like it is normally operated with a 753. I am guessing equipment sub or rotation.
|Quoting STJ (Reply 11):|
Pretty strange though as I thought SEA only had 200's going in and out and this was a 300. Curious if the 300 has the legs to do SEA-AMS or SEA-NRT and they had to sub a 300 in for a 200??
|Quoting Jetjack74 (Reply 12):|
For the 1st 6 months of the A330 operating the SEA-AMS, it was a -300. It became a -200 in 3/05 when the first 5 came into the fleet.
|Quoting N808NW (Reply 14):|
I see this happen about once a week. NW sends an A333 to SEA and all it dose is come right back...they did it with the DC-10 too a few times. its not for positioning or anything to do with the need of an A330 in SEA. if i were to guess id say it was there to get flight crews back and forth when there's no more room on the 753s.
|Quoting PSU.DTW.SCE (Reply 15):|
however after SOC realized that LAX has never ground handled an A330,
|Quoting Molykote (Reply 16):|
The A333 is one of my favorite airplanes. I wish more US carriers used them as they seem the perfect fit for midwest/eastern US to Europe.
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 17):|
LAX has ground handled an A330 before. They shipped in an A332 from MSP to handle overflow from when NW1 went tech (was still a 742 then). Since NW was unable to ship nearly 400 seats to other carriers, they brought in an A332 to handle what they couldn't send over to other carriers.
