How long did NWA operate DC-10s on the LAX-SAN routes
|Quoting SANMAN66 (Reply 2):|
IIRC, NWA (Northwest Orient at the time) started the LAX-SAN service using the DC-10s in 1982. There
were a couple of days when a 727 was substituted. The DC-10's on the route were phased out in early
1986 in favor of 757s
|Quoting g500 (Reply 3):|
Forget about the bad utilization of aircraft, I can't believe they filled up DC10s and 757s on LAX-SAN?
|Quoting simairlinenet (Reply 4):|
Like later decades (A319 near the end), it was probably for connecting passengers to Asia via LAX.
|Quoting SANMAN66 (Reply 5):|
By the time the A319s came along, NW stopped flying to LAX from SAN.
|Quoting simairlinenet (Reply 6):|
I checked some old timetables (I have an Access database of all Northwest schedules from 1993 forward):
-1993: mix of A320, 727-200, 757-200 (flight number varied)
-1994-1997: mix of A320 and 727-200 (NW1/2, which was LAX-NRT-MNL)
-2000: A319 (NW25/26, which was LAX-KIX-MNL?)

a NW 747 landing in SAN -- possibly originated from LAX
