NWA DC10s @ DFW

Wed Dec 13, 2000 11:12 am

Tonight on the News channel that 2 NWA Dc10s were
stranded because of the Winter Storm Warning, Ice all
over the place, can you tell me why NWA using those planer here at DFW, I know they use DC9 here at DFW as well, but does NWA has a hub at DFW.....??

How many other US Airports are stranded with this weather tonight, or any days this week.....?

These planes were probably diverted from MEM.

Probably chartered.. or like Cba said they were diverted from MEM or DTW.

Doubt if they were diversions from MEM since even MEM only gets a single DC-10 daily (from MSP and ANC I believe).

I don't know, but fierce weather is moving into the DFW area right now, as it has been sleeting constantly since about 7pm, and school has been cancelled for tomorrow.

Doesn't seem likely that it would be a diversion....DFW is a long way from MEM for that. I would assume that they would land somewhere closer to MEM.

I am at the NW terminal right now and there has been no DC-10's here all day. NW has had no flights thru here all late this afternoon and not a single plane laying over now as compared to the usual 4-5 DC-9's and a new Airbus flight.

I bet the 10s were diversions from somewhere in the system. Although DFW seems a poor choice based on all the ice their.

Looks like DTW was back to regular operations by about midday today.

MEM looks bad for tomorrow with the majority of the flights before 7pm already cancelled. I check a couple of other carriers out of MEM and they seem to have done the same thing. I think it is a good idea. better to have the passengers warm at home or in a hotel than in an airport that is overcrowded and in the middle of an ice storm.

I thought NW doesn't operate DC-10's out of Memphis.
