NWA 757-300's Routes

Wed Mar 28, 2001 9:37 am


Which routes will the 757-300 be assigned to?

Domestic? Where to?

International? Where to?

Thanks

It will be used to replace the DC-10-40 on high capacity domestic flights. No international flights.

Cba is right. PLUS, I think that after NW's 24 A330-300's for trans-atlantic service come in, they will probably buy more A330's as domestic widebodies.

Sheesh! So negative! They are right, the 330 will probably be set into transatlantic, then more bought for higher capacity domestic flight (DTW-SFO, DTW-MCO, DTW-MSP).

I think the NW 757-300's will be primarily used on longer domestic USA routes.

Expect NW 753's to be regulars at SFO flying to MSP and DTW.

Too bad.... I was hoping to see the 753 on routes to Europe from DTW and maybe MSP.

CO uses 752 on transatlantic flights....

Oh well!

Screw the A330 eh? That might take some extra effort...

The 757-300 will probably be used on very very limited transatlantic servive. It is technically the replacement for the DC-10-40 which runs mostly high capacity domestic trips. It is a narrowbody and therefore does not have the cargo capacity as the 330.... and right now on transatlantic flights and the india runs the DC-10 carries enough cargo to where even if no seats were sold on the flight it would still make a profit. The cargo capacity is a neccesity.

I honestly dont see why people have such biases towards airbus or boeing when the airplanes are very similar and all very good. Peace and humptiness..

Wherever you see a DC-10-40 today, that's where you'll see a 753 tomorrow. Don't count on any 333s operating domestic routes, either. As was mentioned, they're a good choice for those European routes because of their great cargo capacity, but for domestic it's getting the passengers there as cheaply as possible that counts. The 753 will be very hard to beat on that score (regardless of the implications for passenger comfort vs. a vs. a widebody).
