NWA is the only US major ive never flown on. My ex-fiance however is currently making an east coast trip on them. She knows nothing about aircraft or airlines. All she really knows is that she cant have a cigarette until after arriving in PHL
. Anyway, this is only her second trip on an aircraft. The first just happend to be 2 weeks ago when she flew on a mesa CRJ-200. She hated flying on the CRJ.
This morning I receved a text from her impressed with how much larger this plane was and how much more comfortable it was(She was comparing this aircraft to a Mesa CRJ-200 at this point). I looked up her flight arrangements and saw that she was on a dc9 then transferring to am A320 in MSP
. Later she called me out of boredom(and to complain about not being able to have a smoke) at MSP
and I told her that her next flight should be more comfortable and there might even be some kind of IFE (remember, I have never flown on NWA). I just got a call from her after she boarded the A320, she just wanted to let me know that I was wrong about the comfort level and that the other aircraft was no where near as cramped!
So, does anyone on this board share her sentiments? Preferring the Northwest DC-9 to a company A320?
