Last NWA 747-200 Pax Service On 9/12

Sat Sep 08, 2007 9:33 am

From the NWA employee website:


"Northwest to Retire Last 747-200 From Scheduled Passenger Service
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On September 12, Northwest's last 747-200 in scheduled passenger service will begin its retirement routing as NW8, departing Narita for Seattle, and then continuing as NW170 from Seattle to Minneapolis/St. Paul.

"The 747-200 was the mainstay of our international fleet, particularly in the Pacific for several decades," said Captain Lane Littrell, NWA's fleet training captain on the -200. "It has served our passengers and our company well and many of us who have flown it, worked in its cabin or maintained it have a soft spot for it. We'll miss it even as we appreciate the improvements provided by the new generations of A330s and 747-400s."


Northwest began flying the 747-200 in 1975, when the airline took its first delivery of the new model jumbo jet. Northwest's 747-200 passenger fleet peaked in size at 22 aircraft in 1997.


During their 32 years of service, Northwest's 747-200s completed more than 320,000 flights and traveled more than 1 billion miles. Two 747-200s will continue to operate for Northwest as charter aircraft. "

I hope all goes well and pray they find new life with other airlines. May they rest in peace for those that see the scrapper. Out of curiosity, how many crews do they have for the 200's?

I'm gonna miss them! They are really good planes! I'm glad I had a chance to fly it last year from NRT-HKG and v.v.
On the way there, I remember that WBC was EMPTY!! Whoa!! so strange and yet so sad. Being a Silver Elite, the FA asked his supervisor and his supervisor allowed me to go to WBC seats (offered as an extension to Coach). It was a great change from the DTW-NRT flight I just got off of.

I have a 742 from DW in the new colors. It looks real sharp.

That's the way it goes...I knew the time was coming up pretty quick, which is why I was so happy to see this one in Cleveland a couple weeks ago on a sports charter:

Best guess would be either military or NFL charters...or both...

For those of us lucky enough to experience the great rides in these classics, the upper deck was the best kept secret. Despite the lousy windows, NWA never changed the MASSIVE seat pitch from the old First Class days, which limited seating to just 12 passengers. It was having your own private jet!

$742 RT! Amazing. Just think what that same routing would have cost in equivelant dollars when the -200 first flew them. It's no wonder the airlines have to have every inch crammed to make a few bucks today.

I think a lot that price is because it's only a few days from now. There are a few SEA-MSP flights that day that are going for $250ish.

I was going to mention also that this is a great final flight for the NW742. NRT has seen these birds since just about day one, it was born near SEA (which was also a busy NW742 station for many years), and MSP is home. Good show!

FWIW, the A/C is fleet number 6624. Registration number N624US. It's been in NRT since the 3rd, when it flew in from SPN.....

The remaining two 742 pax aircraft will remain in service till after the big charter season. A 742 is coming to FAR today from IAD, if anyone cares it departs IAD at 6:00pm. The aircraft that is coming to FAR has been back in the states for quite sometime now.

I'm wondering what's the registration of the A/C. Today I saw a NW B747-200 parked at the maintenance area in NRT, this time it was the only PAX -200 of NW at NRT. Possibly the the aircraft you meant.

N624US. Fleet number (the number NWA uses internally) is 6624. This is the 4 digit number you can see right by the nose gear.

I thought all of variety of 747 series has been gone just for many 747-400 that are frequently and popular use all over world. I has been lucky to see few 747-400 at DTW when I have layover there in 2003. They look big and massive mother ship of all.

Beechnut...it's not just the football players needing a big aircraft. The support staff comes along as well. Look at all the folks working on the sidelines at an NFL game. Plus you have equipment to lug around as well.
Slightly off-topic here, but which 2 742s is NW planning on retaining for charter & military flights?

Plus, at least for college football, you often have the football team (100 players), plus coaches, support staff, cheerleaders and the band on board. You can easily fill a 747 with a college football team.

absolutely!

IB also had only 12 seats in their 747-200 upper deck, and just like you say with a massive seat pitch. I remember vaguely a MAD-YUL flight in the B742's upper deck when I was 9 years old or so. I will never forget such seat picht and that flight.

The Spanish charter carrier, Air Pullmantur has right now a 747-200 from AF (to be retired next January) which has Economy Class in the upper deck, with 24 seats. It can be one of the last 747 Classic operated by an European airline at the moment.

No doubt, the -200 series of the Boeing 747 have made history in the aviation business and offering a reliable service to hundreds of airlines, during the seventies, eighties and nineties. IB have always been very happy with them.

Are you in first or coach? I bought a roundtrip in coach from CMH today for $190.50 (thanks Skybus), but I'm thinking of canceling it and blowing 70,000 miles to get a seat upstairs (only 3 left, so I don't think I'll get an Elite upgrade).

If you're coming from SEA, you can continue on to CMH and then return on the 13th. That will drop the price to $189.50.

NW offers upgrades from typical 752/753 flights to 742, A333 service of which the teams typically will upgrade on longer flights. With the 742's just running charters they may use them more for the flights regardless so they can keep some 75's in regular service.

I've got my ticket on the upper deck also, cashed in some Delta miles to get there (BOS-JFK-ATL-SEA) cheaper to do that in F than in coach, go figure. I am wondering how many other people on board are doing this for sentimental value, considering t looks like it is 80%-85% full and it is normally operated by a B753.

For those of you planning to take the last flight, NW170, just know that it's already oversold. So, get your seat assignment ASAP. Also, it's sold to capacity in First/Biz, so cross your fingers that someone doesn't show up, if you're hoping to get an upgrade!!!

I wish I could join you guys!! Have a great flight!!

Yep its 30/30 and 407/400. They are going to sell up to 465 seats in back (thats what they are authorized to sell) needless to say, no non-revs will be getting on this bird. However, since its an upgrade from a 330, which they have already sold more seats then what the 333 even holds on the NRT-SEA flight for this bird, there are still some seats left on it.

6623 has been running military charters...Usually, they run (insert an AFB or NWA hub here)-AMS-KWI, then return back through AMS.

For those of you in the SEA area, I believe it'll be at TCM in the next day or 2, but can't remember specifically which day/time...(not much help, I know).

If anyone is interested, IM me and let me know if you want a "Flight Certificate" signed by the Captain... I'm making them up similar to what I did for the NW DC-10 retirement I attended in January... I just need a rough count...

Sure! ill take one. I will also try to make a sign to hold up so we can all meet up. or ill have an agent make an announcement. if you are flying out on 171 to SEA that aircraft is scheduled to be N819NW, the newest A330 in the fleet, this will be its first pax service. kinda funny that it happened to be that way, one aircraft just starting and the other ending its career at NW.

It was incredible !!! Although the landing in MSP was the hardest I've ever been in, see : http://wcco.com/video/?id=31142@wcco.dayport.com

Working on the trip report as we speak.

It landed on rwy 17 in MSP in beautifully clear conditions on a perfect evening in MSP. This is the north end of the new runway 17/35 that is normally used only for landings from the south or departures to the south, but with the main runway 12R/30L closed for major reconstruction, MSP was landing on runways 17 and 22 with departures on 12L. It was hugely impressive to watch it land on this 8000ft runway. I suppose that with the short runway length, it was firmly planted on, but it did not appear to be a rough landing. I have seen some NWA A330s as well as Fedex A300s and DC10s land on this runway, but this was far more impressive than even the A330s. Only wish I had my camera with me.
