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.

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.
