Question About NW In Asia

Mon Oct 16, 2000 7:31 am

Has anyone flown NW on any intra-asia flights? How does it compare to domestic US flights? and last but not least, does the asian population like NW as far as service goes?

NW's intra-asia Flight are the following.

From Tokyo:
Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, Manila, Seoul.

From Nagoya:

From Osaka:
Kaohsiung, Kuala Lumpur.

I think NW has good reputation in Asia. So it might be very popular for asian-traveller.

NW's intra-Asia flights are great! There is usually only one (or two) U.S. based flight attendants and the rest are made up of Japanese flight attendants and flight attendants from the destination/origin to/from where you're flying.
They are all very nice, personable...the food is good, service is excellent.
As far as NW's reputation in Asia; Worldperks is THE best frequent traveller program, and in Japan, NW is second ONLY to JAL in terms of passengers carried.

I've flown NWs flight 69/70 between Kuala Lumpur and Osaka and vice-versa 3 times. They are slightly better than the service provided by the internal US flights. DC-10-30ER serve this route (KUL-Osaka).

Yes, NW does stand for Northwest. NWA is also used when referring to Northwest (hence, NWA Man...)

Just adding a route flown by NW intra-Asia to Jiml1126's comprehensive list...NW also flies KIX-MNL (Osaka-Manila).

Create your own luck.
